Yesterday was Grace's graduation from Liverpool University. It seems such a short time ago that I held her in my arms for the first time and thought of all the possible futures she may have. Now, here she is, a graduate engineer, about to start her working life.
What a truly proud day for us all.
The ceremony took place in the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool. We were lucky enough to be seated in one of the boxes, so we had an excellent view of proceedings.
It was all very colourful.
Not sure about the orange colour for the engineers - did they have in mind high-vis jackets when they allocated them that colour?
Photos outside the Catholic Cathedral afterwards.
Later, we went for a family meal. All in all it was a wonderful day. I'm so proud of my girl and all she has achieved - and not only that but she knits and crochets!
