Not long after Stephanie bought 'Queensferry', I found something I had lost for a while - tools and a pair of commissioned earrings. I've contacted the lady to apologise again for the long delay, and to ask if she would still like them after all this time. Then the magical owl chorus last night and now I got this email from medical school:
'Many congratulations – I am writing to inform you that your application has been successful, and that you have been awarded the Mike Jones Memorial Bursary, to the value of £250. This is an excellent achievement. There was a very large volume indeed of applications this year, and of high standard, so the selection process has been extremely competitive. Your Elective idea sounds beneficial, and interesting.'
It was so unexpected! I came out of the interview thinking that I would never get it, especially when my aforementioned clever friend (who is doing the same project as me) was interviewed immediately before me.
The sun is shining, and I am so incredibly grateful for everything. Thank you!
