Jonathan's Summer Visit

Jonathan, Karen and Katherine came for their usual summer visit - 
unfortunately their car started making a truly dreadful noise
 as they were in a long queue on the M6 - 
and by the time they arrived at Gma's it sounded pretty much dead.
A garage visit confirmed this -
so much of there stay was spent sorting out a replacement.

However by the Friday they were all sorted out -
and we had a family trip to Tatton Park.

Ben was really kind helping Katherine on the playground -
{work experience at Nursery obviously helped here}
Just lovely.

A level results day......

Megs had declared that she wasn't going to check the UCAS website
 until she had been to college to pick up her A Level results.

That determination lasted until she checked Facebook and saw the number of friends who were posting their confirmed places....

So she logged on to see,,,

..... yep - she's off to Sheffield in September!

After that - it was a trip to college to get the actual grades and meet up with friends.

For the record:

English Literature - A
Theatre Studies -A
Extended Project -A
History - B

One happy girl - and virtually all her friends either got in at their first choice -
or were happy with the places they secured over the day through Clearing.

Tonight she's off in Liverpool with friends.....
In a months time we will have left her in her room in Sheffield.

I can't believe my little one is grown up. 
I am so very proud of her and her results.
I can't bare the thought of her going - but I am so excited for the adventures she will have.
Four weeks more.....

August in Wales - Friday 12th

Jude left us in the morning for a quite day at Bodnant -

We drove to Angelsey to meet up with Jane and her girls.

They were staying at the same camp site as last year -
it was a bit windier today -
but we still had a little walk to the cafe at Malltraeth.

{blurry photos as Lexi licked the camera!}

Later on  - we ate at Home Cookin' in Llandudno -

then had a very windy drive around the Orme.
