The results are in...

The results are in; Olivier was expecting to scrape a pass and managed to get a “quite good” pass (the levels are; pass – quite good – good - very good). He was pleased and had made a lot of progress in maths by doing some work – surprise, surprise. Dom got “very good” and will continue on the “master’s” course next year. We are very proud of both of them.

Olivier and I went to Poitiers by train to enrol him at the university. It was a long day as the early afternoon trains were full and we had to wait until four to come home. We looked around the shops and explored and found where Dom’s new flat is. We stood and wondered which was her window.

The nicest part was that Olivier treated me to lunch. The train cost an arm and a leg and I offered to make a picnic, but Olivier had already planned to take me out to lunch. We found a restaurant by the “Notre Dame la Grande” church and sat outside to eat. It was lovely, as well as helping to pass the time. In fact the service was very slow, even for a French restaurant and I swear that the waiter didn’t have a beard at the beginning of the meal.

Other than that it’s work, work, work, I’m just about on top of sorting out the cards we bought two weeks ago. Tuesday is a holiday and Dom has gone off to Paris for a long romantic weekend. Rob and Olivier will be working. I would like to catch up with my blogging friends. Perhaps I’ll see you then.

It's so nice to have children to be proud of. Does this mean - no kids at home next semester?

It is always nice when one passes an examination succesfully. A thing to celebrate.

Cas: From the beginning of September I will be lost. Rob and I are looking forward to having more time to ourselves again.

Peter: Where Olivier was concerned it was relief. We managed to get all together for a meal when Dom brought her boyfriend home.

Dru: Thanks

"and I swear that the waiter didn’t have a beard at the beginning of the meal." LOL!

Congratulations to Dom and Olivier and isn't it lovely when your kids pay for your meal? Even if it's at the Quick (hamburger joint), I am still really chuffed and the time spent together is such fantastic quality time. More so, I find, than when I pay as the 'children' are really making an effort.

If you get my drift...

I'll email you soon.

Zed: We did see a Quick in the centre of Poitiers but decided we wanted a 'real meal'. It was special and I understand your point about quality time. I hope that my email made sense - I still find some aspects of the children's past difficult to put into words.
