Celebrate the small things

My main celebration this week is a big one, well for our family anyway. Our eldest had her official university graduation yesterday. It was a lovely afternoon and even the sun decided to come out for a few hours! There were tears (mine obviously!), a couple of glasses of fizz and lots of laughter. My feet ached today from wearing too high heels (but they were awesome shoes!). Anyway, she now has a First Class BA Hons in Creative Advertising - congratulations Alice. So pleased and proud. I am hoping to be using your talents in the future!

With Dawn French Chancellor of the University who presented the certificates.

In other news, I managed a few hundred words of writing. Not quite as much as I hoped to do but it ended up being a busy week!

Thanks to Lexa and her lovely co-hosts

Happy weekend


  1. Congrats to your daughter. Now she can sell lots of books for you haha

  2. Hi Suzanne - many congratulations to Alice and she's tall and willowy - looks a delight ... though I imagine meeting Dawn French and having her give the speeches and awards must have been quite fun and interesting.

    So pleased for you all - and I'm not surprised you didn't get much done ... but those shoes - sound daunting! Cheers and have a very happy weekend ... Hilary

    1. Dawn was lovely, her speech was perfect just the right amount of seriousness and fun. Thanks, Hilary.

  8. Lovely! Your daughter looks so happy and pretty. I like Dawn's crown too. It must've been an awesome day x

  9. Aw, congrats to your daughter! Congrats to you, too, in regards to your writing. The word count may not have been as large as you had hoped, but at least it's still larger than zero! ;)

  10. Congratulations to your daughter and to you for getting her that far! You should be very proud.
