There are films that you can just watch and watch and watch. This is one of those, as is Guardians of the Galaxy. If my comic book heroes are right, then there should be a cross over Infinity Wars movie around 2018. Looking forward to it.
My comic book heroes have both been in the wars recently. Between A levels and GCSEs we have had a tense few months. Made tenser by a couple of good results being tempered by a couple of rogue results. It's all worked out in the end, though.
scored an A in his English A level, while managing to get a U for Religious Studies. Seriously, DP? It's not like we didn't take you to church every weeks for most of your formative years.... We asked for a re-mark and it was still a U. Either he will end up as the Pope, or more likely he'll start a cult and make a shed load of money.
The results weren't important except to decide which University he went to. ABB and he was off to Liverpool, anything else and it was Salford. We were hoping for Liverpool (cheaper to live at home, easy to get to....) but wishing for Salford (the course suited DP much better) Be careful what you wish for. We've had a week now, and we are happy with the results. I'm a great fatalist; what happens happens for a reason, and this is the right result for him.
did well in his GCSEs. Certainly better than his 'started late and brought the dog' approach to revision merited. I think he really only started trying in February, and only for Maths and Physics. He got an A in Maths, which he needed to study the A level, His C in Chemistry wasn't enough for THAT A level, so he's doing Maths, Physics A level and a BTec in engineering with a view to engineering at University. I'm not letting him take his eye off the ball from now until the exams, so expect a good few whining posts about teenage boys and bad work attitudes. Or about how a good swift kick up the jacksie can galvanise a lad to achieve his full potential.
And the to do list is done. At only 1 side of A4 it isn't my longest, but it needs to be done. And I need to get started. Have a good weekend, and I'll be back in a quiet moment at work!
