We found out in April that my son Jamie had a conditional acceptance to the course of his choice at the university of his choice, if he achieved certain grades in his higher exams and passed the university's chemistry 'access' course. He sat the exams in May but we had to wait until August to hear that he'd passed them. He started the access course via distance learning at the end of July and sat the exam yesterday. He was really unsure if he'd done enough to pass but we were told today that he did and so he leaves for Aberdeen on Monday!!!!! He's been under such pressure for so long to get these results but I'm so proud of him and I'm gonna miss him so much. That's two sons away studying and only my daughter still at home - and she's away in Dublin this weekend on a school trip. So looking forward to a stress-free sleep tonight.

Congratulations! I have a friend whose son is starting at Aberdeen soon too. I wish your son all the best.

Thank you. After the wait all summer to find out whether he's going, everything is happening now all of a sudden. He's really looking forward to the move and has a few friends also going there so at least I know he's not going to be on his own.

I suppose he will be leaving soon, or maybe already has? I know my friend's son went yesterday.

Woo Hoo! Good for him. That's such an exciting time of life for them, and soon enough you'll have an empty nest to mourn over.

In some ways I'm looking forward to it - less washing/ironing, less shopping etc but it will be really weird with only my daughter at home. I've never had only one child for about eighteen years!
