FO Friday: Celebrations and Convocations!


Yesterday was an exciting day, my DS (Darling Son) the University Graduate had his Convocation.  He now has his Bachelor of Arts Honours in English Literature Degree.


This was an outdoor event. It was very cold and overcast,  fortunately the rain held off until we were on our way home.  It was wonderful anyway!  

My awesome son!
