A Truly Happy Ending

East of the Sun and West of the Moon
Kay Nielsen
(1914)

MissM, connoisseur of fairy stories,
has received her starry exam results
and will be reading English at university
and the Charming MasterN
has received equally starry results
and will be reading Geography at university.

All the hard work is forgotten
and tonight we will be celebrating.

  3. Congratulations!

    But won't there be a Gap Year in which MissM journeys to rural Missouri to impart knowledge of Hinduism, fairy stories and fashion to a family hungry for what she has to offer??

  14. Sounds to me like a wonderful beginning - the product of hard work.

  15. Excellent news. I'm surrounded by neighbours where there has been dreadful wailing and gnashing of teeth, followed by frantic and fruitless calls to universities, so it's encouraging to hear of some youngsters who did well! Enjoy your celebrations.

    BTW, I followed the link to the post about fairy stories, and have now got another excuse (as if one was needed) to spend hours reading lovely blogs....

  19. Well done MissM and MasterN - we too have been celebrating - Sarah got her results too and will got to Hertfordshire Uni to train to be a Physiotherapist - the receipt of a letter from them this morning informing her she'd been allocated her first choice of accommodation was met with a see-saw of emotions from total delight to absolute dread thinking she's got in and now it's a reality - happy days (where are the tissues for Mum?)
