Hallo everyone! I hope you're all having a relaxing weekend with those that you love.
I hope you'll forgive me today if I write as a very proud grandma of my number 1 granddaughter!
We have just heard that she has attained an A* (the highest mark) in her French International GCSE Exam - and bear in mind she is only 13! This Exam is usually taken at 15 and these are the Exams that are taken before they go on to study for their 'A' levels.
Eleanor moved to France with her mum and dad when she was six years old and has worked so very hard ever since then really. In France they get so much homework, certainly compared to here in England. I was always staggered by the amount that she had to study at home!
She is a lovely girl and I know that, if she were to meet you all, she would chat and chat and chat!! (She takes after my lovely son-in-law, as he loves to talk! My husband is quiet so, when they are all here staying with us, I think it's wonderful).
So, many congratulations to my much loved granddaughter - I guess we will have to hit the shops when I come over to Paris in two weeks time! :)
From a little girl so very small, how and when did you get so tall?
A granddaughter is a gift from above ... one to cherish and to love.
