More discipline like that and maybe, just maybe, we can look forward to a generation that's not idly wasting it's time.

Ahem?

As I recall, I got nothing for my O-levels, and was only promised anything for As at A-level.

No heavy pressure expectation there then  Roll Eyes

If Huw does particularly well we usually have a family treat, like going out for lunch somewhere that he likes (which is inevitably GBK), or even a celebration tea with cake and stuff. We've never got into the presents as a reward thing, because we think it gives out the wrong message.

However, I think it's important to mark excellent results or similar in some way or other,

No, Huw's first choice is never curry...and he likes cake more than I do...

The apostrophe in "that's" is correct; the apostrophe in "it's' is not correct; there should only be an apostrophe in "its" when it is a contraction of "it is" and never to denote the possessive. Innit.

I used to have a bigger sig but Robert kept moaning about it so I have been reduced to this now. Sad

It's a typo. I am aware of the difference.
