I have been tagged by Wendy to list 6 weird things about myself, obviously this will take some thinking about as there can't possibly be anything weird about me!!!!!!!!!!!!
Moving on to wonderful things, we had a lovely day on Friday for Lucy's graduation. A very long day travelling but worth every minute. She wore a smile from ear to ear all day. It was one of those days where you feel so proud but mostly so thrilled for your child to have achieved so much. Lucy was delighted to be reunited with her uni friends, I know she really misses them. We left her late in the afternoon to have the rest of the weekend enjoying herself.
Just before Christmas I was also fortunate enough to be invited to our nephews passing out parade at Sandhurst. Such a wonderful occasion and like Lucy's graduation, brought tears to my eyes. I feel it is so sad that young people today seem to have such a bad reputation, because the young men and women I met and spoke to at this parade and Lucy's graduation were polite energetic and full of life, which is how it should be when they have so many wonderful times that lay ahead of them.
I wish the very best of luck to these two as they set off in their chosen careers.
My final wonderful thing arrived by post this week. I haven't thanked the person who sent it properly yet due to a busy week. I bought this from Julies etsy shop and I am thrilled with it, so go there and look and her creative talents.
Time for the weird list:
1. When I am using my sewing machine I only ever have one shoe on, as I feel I have better control over the foot pedal with a bare foot.
2. I iron underwear.
3. I love eating uncooked pastry.
4. I get very excited when I see the first bright green astrantia leaf pop through the ground in spring, then i have to ring my gardening buddy and tell her.
5. I love watching washing in the machine when it reaches the soapy stage. ( white wash only)
