Just keep thinking this...


This picture is especially for Jade my oldest cupcake. She's been doing her GCSE's all last week and has the last 2 today and on Wednesday. A very stressful time for her. We saw a real difference in her this weekend, she looked thinner, paler and sleeper (if a teenager can look any sleeper lol). I took her and Daisy out on Saturday to the shops for a little break. (miss Molly was out partying with school friends and Mr cup).
I think the break did her some good, as she got stuck in to the books again on the Sunday.
Good my lovely girl, just give it your best that is all we ask of you. Ben and i are very proud of all your hard work.
And just remember the words above KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON.
My thoughts are with any other parents on here with teenagers going through the same thing. I know i wouldn't want to go back to school now for all the tea in China.
I must admit i didn't do well in my G's but it's never stopped me doing anything in life. And now i run my own business and work for myself. I hope i give you the confidence to just do your best. There is so much more stress put on own youngster's, i dread to think what it's going to be like for Molly and Daisy when they get to their teens. But we're support them in everything they choose.
This weekend coming Jade and you can have a rest and enjoy yourself with Tom (that's her boyfriend wink!). And just relax knowing that part is all done with.
With love,

Sending good luck from us up here in Scotland, my big one has her standards in the spring (scottish version of gcse's) and the stress levels are already starting to rise so I fully empathise.

Exams really aren't the be all and end all of everything, doing your best is all anyone can ask or expect, after that the world is still out there waiting for your adventures.
