    Yes I got chute. It was the day before that caused the problem - parer if my memory serves me well.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    Would it have been feasible to organise that on line? Surely the site would have crashed with hundreds of thousands trying to access it at the same time. Those travelling from outside London would have found it difficult to coordinate their arrival time and then someone would have had to check everyone’s number to make sure they were there at the right time!

    Heading back to UK with 12yr & 14yr old

    Going into Y10 in February is certainly not ideal. You may want to choose Y9 instead so your child can do the full GCSE course starting in September.
  9. Great to hear your follow-up bug family and I wish you all the very best in your new life.

    It all happened so quickly. A lifetime of service. You sensed once she’d reached her 70th anniversary it was time to let go.

    Still here and still feel the pull

    I can’t believe that Nanna is seriously thinking of backing out of selling her house with 24 hours to go. I feel for the prospective buyers!

    I am a Northerner and have no preconceptions of peoples’ abilities based on their accent or anything else. I don’t describe people as thick as mince. I was simply wondering if that’s why some people might be judging Liz Truss’s ability.

    My Aussie daughter who’s arriving in SW France this evening to join us on holiday just forwarded this message from SNCF. Good to know it’s not just in the UK hot weather disrupts the trains.

    As well as an Oxford degree, she qualified as a Chartered Management Accountant and was economic director at Cable and Wireless. Perhaps it’s her northern accent and comprehensive education that make you think she’s thick.

    The Official Weather Thread

    We’ve been promised rain for 2 days….it finally arrived in Yorkshire at 6pm. A torrential downpour which is still pelting down more than 4 hours later. Wonderful!

    The problem is that this year has seen very little rain both in the UK and across Europe. In Germany the Rhine is at such a low level that barges can no longer travel on it. Some reservoirs in southern Spain are at just 12% capacity. We all need to value our water more.

    Is my daughter in the right year group for her age?!

    In Victoria students transfer to secondary school at age 12. They begin in Year 7 and can leave school after Year 10. If they choose to stay on for VCE which is the equivalent of A levels, they do Year 11 and 12.

    The mixed triathlon was excellent. I felt sorry for anyone competing between 5-8pm yesterday as the whole country was watching the Lionesses winning the European Cup!️

    There’s a lot of coverage on the BBC here and it was announced 3 million tickets have been sold . All the athletes interviewed have said how great it’s been to participate in front of large noisy audiences again, such a difference from the Olympics. I also like the events you don’t see elsewhere, such as mixed relay swimming even if Australia beat England.
