Today my daughter graduated from Portsmouth University with a 2-1. We had a lovely day, I took along my mum for the ceremony too so my daughter had her mum (me!), her grandma and her dad there for support, I am one very proud parent!
The car journey to and from Portsmouth was a little fractious. Mum didn't want me answering phone calls in the car with my handsfree for starters and every time I managed to reach the dizzy heights of 70mph in my banger she held on to her arm rest for dear life as if we were about to take flight!
Oh and no radio either, she asked me to turn it down to such a degree I couldn't hear anything above the engine, so I just turned it off.
Tomorrow I get my lie-in, one of many now that I have started my summer hols, wooo! I don't have a lot planned for my time off as yet, though there are a few trips out which I'm looking forward to.
Sorting out my garden and repainting the fence is definitely a priority and I must continue working on my friends garden too, it's been a slow process this year trying to get it completed.
And of course I need to socialise more; I must find a Salsa class, catch up with friends I haven't seen for ages (which includes a visit to Manchester) and hopefully have days out with my girls.
The depressing thing is all of the above involves spare cash, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, (does anyone know what it looks like?) hmmm, could be spending alot of time at home then!!
It would be great to be in a position to actually go abroad each summer, considering I have 6 weeks off, but that has never been possible unfortunately, so towards the end of the hols I do start pulling my hair out! Won't think about that just yet though, will wait until the novelty wears off first.
I think it's time to go to bed now, motorway driving always drains me. I have my roomie's bed all to myself tonight and tomorrow, yay, she's staying in Portsmouth for graduation celebrations.
Now, what tropical island shall I visit in my dreams tonight........
