I make no excuses for this quick post just to say how proud and relieved I am today. My son has just heard that he has got a 2:1 degree in Politics and can now accept the offer of a place to study for a Masters degree in African politics at the School of Oriental and African Studies which is part of the University of London next year. He is absolutely thrilled and we are just so proud of him. It hasn't been an easy journey for him, and it says so much about his determination to do well.
And the fact that he will be living 30 miles away from home instead of 150 is just icing on the cake!
