First fruits of the year

What a wonderful start to the year - the news that our eldest grandson, Alexander, has been awarded a place at Oxford to read Modern Languages.
The exciting part is that it has been such a wonderful surprise: until 2 days before the application deadline last Autumn, no-one had suggested he was a prospective candidate. His references were due to go off to UCAS when the decision was taken to apply to Oxford because his subjects had such promising predictions.
We heard when we went up for his Concert/Pantomime/Carol Service: that he had been asked for an Interview.
and now, to start the New Year, here is this good news!
