Its that time of year, The trampoline has been dusted down and prepared for another year of pounding by Beth and her neighbourhood pals !! After a bad first few months with the tramp, it has really been quite well behaved for the past two years. Beth does trampolining at school and finds that the mat on this one has become a Little stretched, she SAYS that is the reason that she find back drops a little more difficult than she did last year, I have my suspicions that it is that she is a little less practiced than at the end of last summer!! Anyway these photos show her arms flailing trying to do a back drop!!
Yesterday we have had a bit of a set back in Carl's plans for Uni. He got a rejection from Herts, which has come as a real shock. perhaps we were being too confident. On the positive side he still has two very good offers on the table. It was just that we were pinning our hopes on Herts, so that he could continue with his job and help support himself. I worry that he will end up with a huge debt and will have to sell his much loved car. All the means tested grants we don't qualify for although during this year our earning circumstances will change to our detriment. All the means tested stuff is based on last years earnings. All is not lost we will just have to hope that he gets the exam results that he needs to allow him a choice out of these two.
I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason and that we will come out better in the end.
