she has her grade 7 ballet exam at 1pm. She couldn't practice much because her knees have flared up again so is feeling a bit unprepared.

Good vibes very welcome.

good vibes sent your way

@OP - you're not a saffer are you? Just asked as I've not heard the phrase "hold thumbs" for years

Lots of luck for your DD (not that she'll need it) smile

We hold thumbs in our family - think it is a European thing, as they do it in Poland too (I'm of German descent).

Ooh wishing her good luck.

My DD did her pre-primary ballet exam last weekend! I fear we have many more years of this to come!

Good luck smile I bet she'll be amazing! I miss my ballet classes... can't wait to go and see any future daughters of mine doing classes :D

(note: nothing against boys doing ballet! If DS wants to join, he totally can!)

I wondered what that meant and was curious.
Do you mind if I cross my fingers? I need to do some ironing and it will be tricky with held thumbs.
