Today started with me black and bad, angry and resentful, full of inexplicable bile and agro.
Then chef made me laugh and it improved greatly.
Then I made apple cinnamon fritters and it got even better, even if my headache did not.
And then, AND THEN
THE LETTER ARRIVED.
THE LETTER being THE LETTER from St Edmund’s School offering Oscar a place for high school.
DUDES – words will not express what this means.
This is the difference between Oscar soaring and Oscar ‘being OK’.
The difference between Oscar learning and Oscar being minded.
The difference between Oscar being a part of something and Oscar just being there.
and a hundred other differences.
It is huge.
PS – In coming weeks (read months by the time I get myself organised) I will be setting up a donate button in my sidebar for anyone feeling compelled to help us pay for the tuition. It is not a State school and while the fees are remarkably reasonable for the education Oscar will get, it is still a few thousand dollars we don’t have.
