.. for y13 ds and he can't wait!
Earlier this year he was wishing he could stay at school longer, a bit apprehensive about going to uni ,so It is so good to see him feeling restless and ready to move on!

What is he doing between A levels and results day? Quite a lot of time isn't it?

I'm doing the laundry and, as usual, have put half the socks in a plastic tub that we call The Land of Lost Sock. I live in vain hope that a lonely sock may find its twin in there and be paired up.
TLofLS currently contains about 25 other people's grey school socks which are all slightly different and definitely not a pair. How many variations on a grey sock can the world produce!?

dd is hoping her last day was last week.

Congrats (I hope, fingers crossed) to your DD, glaurung, she has done well to land a job in the present economic circumstances.
