It turns out that Uncle Tom is not as bad as we were led to believe, which is a huge relief. I am not quite so terrified now.

Mr20 is still sick, this is the third week of this. He missed the Uni Entrance Exams today, but can re-sit later in the year if he has a Medical Certificate. No worries there. He has a lot of stuff to catch up on, but with some intense tutoring he should be OK.
