If I thought the exams were stressful, it was nothing compared to this week. Eleanor has definitely developed anxiety, which I actually realised when she was having panic attacks during the exams. This week it's manifested itself in the form of nausea. She's had a sick bowl pinned to her side at all times, though she hasn't actually been sick.
As it turns out, she had nothing to worry about, all her hard work has paid off and she's got a place at her university of choice, Nottingham Trent, to study biomedical sciences. She was actually offered a place at her second university choice too.
She was disappointed in her grades when she took her AS Levels last year, even though she worked really hard for them, but she's improved on them this time and come out with a C in Biology and B's in both Psychology and Sociology. We're really proud of her.
Perhaps the sick bowl can be put away again now whilst we have a day of celebrations.
