Z asks the right question

We went to a party last night. A housewarming, thrown by friends who left the village nearly 15 years ago and have now returned to the area. Chatting to other friends, I remembered to ask if Rebecca had received her results yet.

Good question. Modest mum had not volunteered the information, but her face lit up. "She got them today. A First!"

My other friend's daughter, also reading Law at Cambridge, got a 2:1. Well done, Rachel and Rebecca.

Gutted for poor Rachel - would have been a result, but for Rebecca.

Lovely story though, well done you.

I love asking my parent's friends if they have any photos of their new grand-children with them. They always do, and it makes them so happy to show them.

Z said...

True, but Rachel was really anxious she had flunked it and I'm sure she's thrilled with her degree.

You are a honey, how thoughtful. No point in asking me though, I never carry photos! I might have one on my camera, but that'd be it. I'm a bad and unnatural grandparent.

Oh, don't be so hard on yourself, z; you are a great grandma, and you *play* with your grandkids. That' more important than carrying photos around!

Z said...

A great grandma? Gosh, not quite yet - though my sister is a great aunt of course...

but thanks, Imperatrix!

How do we know said...

Ummm... am glad for both the girls :-)
