10 Days of emotional ups and downs

My crawl back to the wagon has begun, but is taking longer than it should as there is so much going on in my life.
Last week we heard the horrible news that my daughter did not get a secondary school place worth accepting, despite being a straight A student, highly academic. She now has no place and we feel like we have let her down. I have been kicking up a fuss in the local paper, but that is focussed on changing the system rather than my own personal situation. My poor daughter is devastated and closing up. We are focussing so hard on finding her a place its draining both mentally and physically.
Contrast that with the amzing news we heard yesterday which is that my eldest son has won a scholarship to Harrow School! He is also highly academic - scarily so and he has (like his sister) worked really hard.
