..(nobody will even look with a title like that will they! grin)..

DS1 (15), now in Y11, is being awarded Year 10 Student of the Year I have just opened the letter and wanted to share. :}

Am very proud of him. And can't text him to tell him as have just noticed his phone is here! hmm

He is only allowed 2 guests on the night.. now [dilemma].. do I invite xH (DS's dad) who DH [step dad since he was 2]??! xH came in y9 when he got an award for 'outstanding strength and personaility' (!).. which he - DS - found most amusing! grin (Conceited he aint! grin)

Do you think it's DH's turn now? But obviously I want to tell xH.. and then he will want to come! Hmmmmm

They could go together and you could stay home!

Or ask ds who he would like to attend.

Congratulations for having a fantastic sounding ds by the way.

Well done to him! Bet you're feeling proud - you must have had something to do with him turning out so well smile.

How would you feel about allowing him to choose his guests?

If you rang the school and explained the circumstances, would they extend the invitation to 3? There must be fewer and fewer straightforward "2 parent" set-ups these days - and I brought DS1's dad and my DH to some school award thingy once. For Student of the Year you'd think the school could be a bit flexible - it's worth a try before making a decision.

Ok I'll do that.. pass the buck so to speak.. grin His problem now! Thanks

Well done to your DS!

ShinyHappyPurpleSeveredHeads Wed 03-Oct-07 11:22:06

Hmm. I suppose I could try asking..

Or maybe I will just mention it to DS.. see what he thinks.. maybe he can ask..

LOL at them going to together. They only grunt greetings at each other even now when DH and I have been married 12 years Men...

Ooooh, congrats - that's brilliant! I do think you should try asking the school for a little, tiny, extra place. They can only say no!

And I notice you have severed heads in your nickname too. Rats! Now I shall have to think of something else!

Wow! Well done him smile

Yes, do ask the school if they can make an exception for the Student of the Year. If not then I'd say it's DH's turn.

That's better dusts off whiskers

Sorry SmartArse!! I am just re-using the Halloween name I had last year - not v. imaginative; me.. but I was going to offer to change it.. cob webs are good tho!

Have just phoned school.. and they have just got back to me and said yes!! So I can take husbands past and present, lol Thank you for advice. I am such a "law abiding" citizen that doubt I would have thought to ring and ask if you lot hadn't told me to!

SmartArseCoveredinCobwebs Wed 03-Oct-07 11:49:05

Incidentally, I would have been too cowardly to ask in the first place, but I'm great at telling other people what to do!

So glad you can all go.

Congratulations to your DS, SHPSH smile

Phone the school and ask for an extra seat.

The worst that they can do is say no, and I'd be amazed if they did refuse such a reasonable sucess.

And good for him! Sound chap and all that!

Thanks MB.. they DID say yes! (As in "Man from Del Monte..".. oh dear showing age again.. hmm
