Ok so above was after the graduation
The supportive maternal Grandparents by the gate to the Geosciences reception. Even tho they couldn't come to the actual ceremony they came all the way up to share in the celebrations. Annoying, too as all the way up in the 'god's' in the MacEwan building were hundreds of empty seats - I'm sure they could have filled them. They took us out for a wonderful meal at Whiski Rooms by the Mound, where Jay worked thru his studying the last 2 yrs or so. Delicious, really classy without any pretentions. We'd shared my birthday cake the day before with a delicious Chinese meal & the kind waitresses let us have my Mom's birthday cake there in the reseraunt - we're 2 days apart. Managed a pudding too, just!
Photos are wonderful aren't they? I feel quite choked up remembering the pomp & ceremony & really not too pompous at all, just a beautiful setting & wonderfully choriographed - the fact that this is MY boy in amongst all these achieving people, & having learnt over the years that there are many kinds of intelligence I felt proud to be included. I shall enjoy these memories for many years.
Went to Portree to visit my work & the DH's work that was accepted for the summer into
You've seen these before - I'm just trying to give a sense of 'place'
Tha cafe downstairs with my cards in the far rack. My textile buddy & i had a delicious pannini type thing filled with brie & tomatos, not a sandwich just added to the dough then baked, delicious & a great latte ;)
Last but definitely not least I won a giveaway a couple of weeks back from the lovely Heloise, 4 cards & a little ribboned tag - they;ll be going on my studio wall to be enjoyed greatly, thank you ;)
