I haven’t been around much but not because I don’t care or think about you all, I just don’t really think of myself as a person with ms and ignore it to just be me. Can you understand that? I hope so. On to my post …
Please can I share with you how proud I am of my daughter? She’s at uni doing ancient history and Latin, coming up to the end of year 2 of 3 before she does a year teaching to teach at GCSE and A Level. She’s just been given a scholarship to spend 2 weeks at Bryanston in Dorset to do a course that only has 17 places in the entire UK per year studying ancient Greek. It’s one of those really prestigious places where students prepare for Eton.
As a single mum who had to retire due to ill health and end up on benefits I never imagined my daughter would be able to attend uni, never mind her getting firsts in her subjects and offered opportunities like this where they’re even paying her accommodation and meal costs and her not having to pay any of the approximate £25 000 this 2 week course costs.
I hope you don’t mind my post but it’s good news that our kids can still reach their goals despite our lives. I’m so glad I won my argument for her going to the better uni and not staying at home worried about leaving me.
Take care and keep warm
