Graduation Day 

The 10th July 2017 was a really proud day for me as Vickie, my youngest daughter, graduated from Birmingham University with a Masters Degree.  She has worked really hard and deserves all the credit and I was so happy for her.

The sun was shining and it was a really lovely Gradation ceremony in a beautiful hall. Everything was so well planned and we had strawberries and cream  in the Graduation marquee afterwards.

Congratulations Vickie 

More tomorrow ...
