So very very Proud.....

I have mentioned before that Fin took some very important exams to do with his job..
well on Monday we went to his Graduation ceremony...

  I was busting with so much pride..he spent quite a few weeks away on his course and worked so very hard. and as I said before it is not quite so easy when (one is of a certain age)  bless!

The University laid on a lovely drinks and canapes reception afterwards,  Fin and I really enjoyed the day
Afterwards we traveled on to Rutland and stayed at this very pretty Country Hotel...

 Wild flowers in the grounds....
 A very pretty room was waiting for us...

I had bought the Champagne and strawberries with us.....

So there was only one thing to do.... I raised my glass to my very clever man!!

We spent the next day visiting a very special garden, but I shall talk about that another day.
.now I am going to sit down with a cuppa! and catch up on all your wonderful blogs...Thea xx


  1. What a lovely get-a-way. Tell your hub congratulations . . . more education is a wonderful thing, at any age :)

  2. Congratulations to Fin, an amazing achievement. I think it is so much harder to study when you are older so no wonder you are very proud of him Thea. Glad you had a lovely time away to celebrate.X

  3. Congratulations and very well done to your husband.

    Love the wildflowers in the grounds of the hotel and what a wonderful room you stayed in.

    Looking forward to hearing about the garden.

  9. Congratulations to your Fin. I think every age is good for education, great!
    I'm looking forward to which garden you visited.

  10. Well done to Fin and what a lovely treat for you too. Its harder to study when you are older as work and daily life are more likely to get in the way. I hope you had lovely weather for your garden visit - I have been trying to guess where it might be. Karen xx

  13. Congratulations to Fin! Graduating at any age is a great sense of accomplishment. I'll bet he's relieved to be finished with the studying (for now!). What a great idea to continue on with a special stay-over at such a pretty hotel. The room looks like something straight out of your own home ;) Enjoy your weekend and blog catch-up! Wendy x
