The News We've All Been Waiting For. . .

Well, at least I've been waiting for it. I had a very nervous wait at school this morning to collect my envelope containing my results. I have never felt so sick and so nervous in my life. My stomach was doing back flips. I went into an empty room, took a deep breath and opened that dreaded envelope. And here's what I got:
Drama - A
English Literature - B
History - D

The History result was a bit of a shock, but it doesn't really matter because I got in to the University of Winchester!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D I am so very happy. It was a bit touch and go because the D surprised me so I didn't know if I had done enough to get in. Then I raced to my tutor's room, who was logged onto the university system and said my place was confirmed. I cannot convey the joy I felt. I did work really hard for my grades and I'm so happy that I get to go to Uni in September!
My parents got me a bottle of champagne, some cards and £20 for doing so well. I might save that for a bit of stash just before I go to Uni that will hopefully last me till Christmas! My boyfriend got me a card and some of my favourite chocolate fudge. My grandad gave me some money as well, to go towards my holiday. It was so lovely to receive all of these thoughtful gifts.
Speaking of my holiday, I leave tomorrow for the Lake District. I hope I find some hidden craft/haberdashery shops up there, I'll of course show any gems I find. I'm taking my stitching with me too, so expect a progress pic late next week.
I'm so glad I get to go on this holiday relaxed and knowing that I've got a definite place at Winchester come September. I couldn't be more pleased!! :)
I hope you are all well and I look forward to seeing what everyone has been up to when I return. Best wishes to all.
