The third things seem to be slowing down so I think there's a chance of getting to the 23rd with some space left!
If not, we can take our cue from Hollywood and just call it The Reckoning 2

Found you.

Wonderwine Fri 13-Jul-18 01:49:32

I'm here! Thanks for tagging me in. AWay on holiday though so may not be posting much...

cubscout Fri 13-Jul-18 04:00:57

Thanks [mmzz]. Still away but just able to catch up today, Wi-Fi is patchy! Glad to hear proms seem to have gone well. [Sost] hope you are feeling better.

sandybayley Fri 13-Jul-18 06:37:51

I'm here!

Good to hear from @Sostenueto after her treatment.

Hugs to @AlexanderHamilton at a difficult and worrying time.

DS1 enjoyed his trip to Ben Nevis and is playing a huge amount of cricket - 3 matches in 4 days.

Went to see Hamilton on Wednesday and off to Wimbledon in Sunday - all go round here.

DS1 school has already loaded up his timetable for September on the parent portal and he's disappointed by the low number of free periods - I'm not!

Theimpossiblegirl Fri 13-Jul-18 06:45:00

Thanks so much for adding me.
Dd is camping in Devon with a big group of girls and one very brave mum.
She's finally tidied her room.
I'll catch up with you all properly tonight.

Cblue Fri 13-Jul-18 07:17:44

Thanks @mmzz

hi all
Thread 15 - who would have thought it!!! Do you think we are going for a record for the longest thread on MN 

@Sostenueto and @AlexanderHamilton thanksthanksthinking of you both

Last day at school yesterday so a bit of a monumental day. Probably best since she managed to get clay and glue on her school skirt, she has face paint on her shirt and face (war paint from sports day) and I would be ashamed to wipe the floor with her blazer.

Now it's the interminable wait until August. What's the betting that this post just about limps to results day and then goes crazy with joy, tears, 6th form decisions and general angst.

Lots hope it's all joy!!!

Cblue Fri 13-Jul-18 07:20:01

Let's hope it's all joy ....not lots hope it's all joy smile

TeenTimesTwo Fri 13-Jul-18 07:34:49

Nice to be tagged even though I'm an interloper. smile
Hope you are all enjoying a good rest.

AChickenCalledKorma Fri 13-Jul-18 07:39:43

Thanks mmzz. Have you got a spreadsheet for that impressive list of names? grin

Last day off proper lessons for DD2 today. Then two activity days and the summer holidays. I think DD1 is rather disappointed that her peaceful days at home are about to end!

Tomorrow she is going to help her friend buy a sixth form suit. I think friend's mum is very brave letting them do it without supervision. And friend may be a bit surprised to hear that DD1's sixth form dress code basically amounts to "not too scruffy"!

KickBishopBrennanUpTheArse Fri 13-Jul-18 07:47:34

Checking in from deepest Borneo! WiFi is patchy but currently working. We're off out to watch 2 million bats fly out of a cave later.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. GCSEs are a distant memory at the moment. I expect we'll start counting down to results day once we're back in the UK.

LooseAtTheSeams Fri 13-Jul-18 08:01:04

Hi - glad mmzz pointed us to the new thread! I also suspect it's going to get very busy after results day.
Love to Alexander and Sostenueto.
Had a great day at Wimbledon yesterday. DS enjoyed playing with his concert band and they had an appreciative crowd Between now and results he has a music trip to Germany and a week away to look forward to.

PeggySchuylar Fri 13-Jul-18 08:48:59

Thabk you mmzz

PandaG Fri 13-Jul-18 10:14:18

Thanks for the tag! DD had her prom Wednesday night, I've not really heard anything about it as she is also on ncs residential - DH picked her and friends up from prom and dropped them off at post prom sleepover, then she went straight back to ncs the following morning! Should see her this afternoon!

mmzz Fri 13-Jul-18 11:40:56

AChickenCalledKorma no spreadsheet, I just sat tagging everyone on the old thread last night whilst watching question time. Then I copy-pasted the names over.

(In the ipad app, you just have to type @ and it comes up with a choice of names from the thread)

mmzz Fri 13-Jul-18 11:42:19

Yes, I predict the thread will start to get busy from the evening of the 22nd onwards, and stay that way until A levels have been chosen and everyone has their sixth form place.

Well DD has just popped home with a mate and a portion of chips. Ncs and school induction have finished for the week, but she has now gone to her old junior school to tell some of the y6 about a club she helps run at secondary. She is quite excited about going back to juniors!

HesMyLobster Fri 13-Jul-18 13:08:53

Thankyou mmzz for the new thread and for tagging everybody!

Kick I'm so jealous, Borneo is too of my list of places I want to visit! Hope you're having an amazing time!
Same to everyone else already on holiday.

We go away next Thursday, I can't wait!
Before that DD is doing another week of working with pre school children with additional needs - long, hard days and she's shattered but loving it. She has so much patience l, I don't think I could do it.

InMySpareTime Fri 13-Jul-18 13:21:47

Found you. DS is away on a geek trip with DH, visiting museums, mines and railways, so I've had a bit of a break from his relentless boredom.

JugglingFromHereToThere Fri 13-Jul-18 14:09:04

Judging from the end of first year Uni thread I'm on, where I think we all started out somewhere around GCSE run up, this thread might carry on longer than you think!
