It’s not often that a trip to Milton Keynes and an ill prepared exam equal a good day.
Today they did.
Today I met up with a friend and the woman she will marry soon to pick my best woman dress. And I fitted into dresses without whimpering and picked from two that looked lovely and chose the more daring one because now I can. And there was even a hint of surprise in the shop owners voice that I am a mother of six.
That was an excellent part. But we weren’t allowed to take photos 🙁
Then there was this little face…
When we hired him this 🙂
Leaving it behind was painful though 🙄
And then there was the girl who came out of English literature gcse with a smile even though 2 weeks ago she had never done an exam paper question (don’t ask) because the work she and I put in together made a difference.
She celebrated with skittles.
I love my teenager 🙂 She’s 16 on Friday. Whimper.
