Well that was a day. Thanks for all the best wishes to child 2- suffice to say she spent the day feeling mightily relieved. Though not as relieved as Parent 1 and 2. A celebratory pizza and fizz was required and duly delivered. But that is quite enough. I remember how tricky it was when other results at other times were somewhat more challenging and the media was full of celebrating lovelies and reports of how well everyone was doing. Difficult times. Time to switch stuff off and go for beach walks. The students of course are so connected they know how everyone has done as soon they've updated their status's (status'?). Before breakfast they know how everyone has done, who's got in where and who hasn't got in anywhere. We are mere observers again.
Drivetime by the way has a lovely Facebook page but I can't be bothered to do it on my own and anyway les enfants have decreed that parents should be banned from Facebook as it is their thing; I am quite happy to oblige.
2 shows today again; films at 5 with guest Colin Farrell who stars in the remake of Total Recall then the mighty ARF. Let's blast the radio with an opening song of wonder and noise.
Have a significant and startling Friday; see you after 2&5.

    Good Morning Simon and Poppeteers

    So pleased you had a nice time celebrating with child 2. My lovely step daughter was a tad disappointed with her 3 Bs having had As and A*s all the way through her year ;( Anyhoo, still good I thought.

    Arfo today?

    TULANE - THE STEVE GIBBONS BAND

    DOWN THE DUSTPIPE - STATUS QUO

    Morning Simon and the Drivetime team

    I don't get here much these days, work just seems to get in the way but I'm not complaining s I work for myself and as they say, time is money and money is time!

    Now, today is my birthday. I'm officially Forty Phoarrrrrrr years old today so, for ARF I'd love for you to kick the party off with

    BIRTHDAY - THE BEATLES

    a fine rocky number from that popular Scouse beat combo of yesteryear!

    Yours, in hope

    Morning all.

    Songs of wonder and noise, hmmmmmm!

    Thats the wonder of you - Elvis Presley. Not sure if it contains enough noise though?

    Heavy heavy rain here and its the Dunster show which will be a mudbath, but as its takes weeks of setting up, then the show will go on.

    Definitely a day for a walk on the beach. There's a place you can walk in any type of weather. Sou'wester and mackintosh at the ready.

    Splish splash, gotta dash.

    Happy Days.

    Massive congratulations to the Mayo family - [these results really are a family affair nowadays] - and all the other Blogpoppet families who have received good news.

    Our family seem to be in an A Level Result-free zone this year but kudos must go to my youngest - the one who decided against A Levels and opted for an apprenticeship - who has completed the NVQ required in order to TEACH her subject. At the local college. Oh my.

    Morning all,

    Congratulations to Mayo child 2! Exciting times ahead!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEEVS!

    I have decided to change my blog name as madchickenwoman no longer applies in my case. :-(

    Same initials and a small reference to my feathered friends who are no longer.

    My OARF choice? Need you ask?

    EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD - TEARS FOR FEARS!

    Have a great weekend all.

    Same initials

    New name same
