I think I finally broke through to my son. He wanted to help me hang out the clothes. I told him no study hard .

I told him to study hard so that more doors will open to him. Don’t care if it’s in vain . If next year he wants to be a plumber or electrician or policeman it’s okie with me.

But it’s his back up. If he decides a few months into the course he doesn’t like it he’s got something to fall back.

I know mum I’m studying .

I think I only broke through to him when I told him look at your dad. When he applied to do this course they made him supply his VCE marks . They didn’t care that he’s a qualified pharmacist . They still wanted to know how he did near 30 years ago.
