Reason to Celebrate…

I don't often talk about my personal life here on the blog...but a momentous event took place this week and I wanted to share.  My daughter graduated from Nottingham University and we had a lovely day on Tuesday to enjoy and celebrate her success.

The university was extremely organized and had a well run system of making sure that you started in one area and then moved into the next whilst never crossing your tracks.  In one door and out the other…into a pre-ceremony tent …out to a post-ceremony tent.  Well orchestrated!

(*warning* photo heavy of my daughter…sorry…just feeling a little on the proud side)

The robes had good “swooshing” ability so quite a bit of time was spent dancing and twirling…You’d think she was a little kid again! :o)

Of course such silliness (good silliness I might add) meant that the tassel needed re-adjusting.

Mandatory family selfie… (got it right 1st time too!  that never happens!)

She’s come a long way from when we dropped her off 3 years ago!  Couldn’t be more proud!

  Until next time...♥

Congratulations to you and your daughter. I can remember not wanting to take my gown and hat off when I got my degree-it felt so special it does make you want to twirl!. I did my midwifery in Nottingham so fond memories.

Hi Jane.
Just saw your blog on DD1 , Is this the same little girl that left Montreal all those years ago. She is beautiful, you must be so very proud of her. Congratulate her for me. Talking Montreal, any chance you will be visiting us in the future. It would be nice to see you. Barb
