The January exams are over, at least for my two. Now that they study entirely separate subjects, the experience has been very different for them. Carenza had one re-take a week ago, Perran four exams over two weeks. Carenza had to keep a lid on her simmering jubilation when she finished; Perran had to keep his nose to the grindstone. The atmosphere here has been…interesting.
I check the deadlines http://www.ucas.com/students/importantdates – they should have heard from all the universities by 31st March and they should make sure they’ve replied to offers through UCAS by 8th May, latest.
Looks like a lull, then.
I think our last proper lull was The Serene Lull of July 2011, just after GCSEs.
What does one do in a lull?
Hibernation is a real temptation in this weather.
Actually, there is something, but it’s a fun something. Perran has never seen one of the universities that he is now favouring. And his Cornish grandparents need visiting. At half term, Carenza will be away on a History trip to Berlin (we will thaw her out in the airing cupboard when she returns).
I think this calls for a mother and son road trip to the West Country.
Grinning, I get out my road atlas.
