Gray received his final exam results today - he has achieved a 2:1 degree classification from the Open University!

I can't begin to tell you how much this means to us. It's the result of four year's hard work and dedication. The past two years has seen Gray studying full-time on top of everything else he's had to contend with.

His dream has always been to get a 2:1 classification, but there was always a chance he'd graduate with a 2:2, which although would have still found me celebrating, would have left Gray feeling disappointed.

Please join me in a toast to celebrate Gray's achievement:

BA (Honours) Humanities with English Language & Literature

and let's not forget the TWO diplomas:
English Language

Finally Gray can believe what I've always told him - that he can do it.
This is just the beginning of his success...

YES!!!!!!!!!!!! Many congratulations, Gray, I am so delighted for you. I knew you would be fine! But I won't say I you so!! I know what an awful wait it is after the exams until the results come in December, so can imagine how anxious and impatient you have been. A fantastic achievement and very well deserved. Celebrate and enjoy every moment of your success.

Thanks so much for all of your positive comments. This is a goal I've had for the past ten years, so the shock of actually getting the 2:1 - and doing so much better than I thought I would - hasn't actually sunk in yet.

Sue and I have a lot to celebrate this Christmas, and I hope everyone else has a great one too. Thanks again!!

Many thanks
