My sister Joan texted me this morning to say that Amy (my great niece) is taking her first GCSE exam today. I am taken aback by this but realise that I am getting older and therefore, by the same token, so is she. I was visiting another sister, Mary, yesterday (Happy 7th Birthday Charlie!) and my nephew Patrick was also busy revising for his English Lit exam.
So if you have a moment, a Hail Mary for these two young people would be much appreciated.
