I haven't been in the mood for commenting this week (problemss with choosing secondary schools for the boy - there is only one choice and it's shit)but you've just cheered me up with this

I'm glad this worked for you.

My son is just two years away from high school, and my partner's daughter must be the same age as your son - it's imminent - so I am very aware of the concerns you have. I will be in the same position sooner than I would like, believe me. I hope things work out a good deal better than you feel at this moment.

Try not to worry too much.
