A Very Special Harvest

A little early to be talking about 'harvest' yet, but I have two reasons for the title of this post. Firstly I wanted to share with you these photos from our garden

Not many pears this year and the tomatoes have been disappointing, but I think we need to reduce the load on the apple and plum trees.

And now the second reason for the title of this blog. Today is GCSE results day. I can still remember mine ( well 'O' Levels in my day) very clearly. I am very proud to say that my son now has 4 A*s, 6 As, 6Bs and 1 C ( 4 of them taken last year).  


  1. Congratulations! You have every right to be proud and he should be jumping about with Joy!

    Does he have any plans as to what A levels he would like to do?

    My son passed all his A.S's, so can continue with his A levels, so good news all round!

  3. My tomatoes are still green! and very well done to your son on his results fabulous, you must be very proud I think I cried when both my son and daughter passed theirs

  4. My tom's are still green!!!! Yours are turning at least, though I have to agree the apples on our tree are enough to feed the whole patch for a year!
    Well done for your son. I remember getting mine too. Seems forever ago now.
