Well tomorrow is Appeal Day. For those of you who don't already have children of Secondary education age (10 years), here's some advice. If you don't get one of your choices of Secondary School... APPEAL...APPEAL...APPEAL!!!!
This has been the hardest few months of my life so far. First I had to deal with a very disappointed 10 year old daughter who didn't get any of her three choices and now I have to Appeal the decision. I have already done one school but tomorrow morning at 9.15am I have the most important Appeal interview, the school Lianne most wants to attend. I think in the last few weeks, I must have lost about a stone with worry and tomorrow is finally dawning on me. I hope, more than anything else, I do the best I can and get her into the school, but if she doesn't get in, I want to be able to look her in the eyes and swear to her that I have done everything I could. I'm even wearing a dress and going to bed early!!!! Don't laugh!
If nothing else, think of me tomorrow from about 9.15am until about 9.30am and send me all your good thoughts. I'm a really strong believer in the power of positive thinking so send me all your thoughts and good wishes....PLEASE!
