It was annoying for my eldest as it was A levels day and he had not topped up his phone. Eventually he was able to discover how his friends had done etc.
We did go out to lunch (the General Havelock has a backup generator) and celebrated his getting into university. He did it, and did it well.
Now, it is my middle's GCSE anxiety as those results are next week.
