Six Phone Calls and a Celebration

It is early morning in London...

MrM checks his computer
and phones MrsM
and MrsM tells him to check his computer again
and so he checks his computer again
and phones MrsM
and then MrsM tells MrM to phone MasterM
and so MrM phones MasterM
and then MrsM phones MasterM
and then MrM phones his parents
and MrsM phones her parents
and we all gasp with amazement
and are SO PROUD of MasterM
because he has got straight As at A Level.

MasterM smiles and goes back to sleep in Johannesburg.
He knows how hard he worked
and how much he deserves this success.

I literally gasped when I got to the end of this post. Having lived in London and made my living in the recruitment of young lawyers I got to know school results very well. And I know how unusual this is.

And just how extraordinary.

Ridiculously I feel like a very proud Aussie Aunt!

Aawwwwwwwww, don't know why but I'm almost in tears over this joyous news (hormones possibly?)!!
Well done MasterM, yes, we are proud of you. I still vividly remember A level Results day which for me was 21 years ago, it's one of those things that stays with you through life.
Well done

Wow MasterM is a smart boy! Congratulations to his parents. He could not have done that with out your support.

eurolush said...

Kudos to Master M. It seems to be well-deserved!

Frankofile said...

My congrats too. Of course. But he doesn't really need them - he's rewarded already. My heart goes out to those who seem ignored - who missed their grades, despite effort.

Ali said...

Stellar - well done MasterM. No one achieves grades like that without an awful lot of hard work. And a little family support.
