Graduation Day

Graduation Day at last.
During the long months of planning and teaching and lectures and assignments, I had this date in mind.
It drew a line underneath the hours of family time that had been lost to my studies.
I wanted to celebrate with a big family meal.
As I explained, I missed the graduation ceremony as I opted to attend my son's Leavers' Mass instead.
However, the graduation celebrations took place as planned.
My mum bought my a wonderful bouquet of flowers and made me a lovely card.
My mum, husband, children and my eldest son's girlfriend enjoyed a wonderful meal followed by drinks with friends in one of our local restaurants.
It was everything I had hoped for and more as we all graduate to a new stage in our lives.
Tomorrow I will explain a little more about my job and the amazing gift I received from a fellow blogger that helped my secure a dream job.

I wore:
My favourite Poppy dress from Oasis.
Shoes: TK Maxx.

  2. I'm so glad you went with that dress! It seems to be iconic-ly you!
