Week 102 - what has made me happy

Well what a week! The first thing I have to tell you is that I got a 2:1 in my degree! I am so, so happy about it. I can't quite believe it. I got my results on Wednesday rather randomly because the economics department published them without telling any of us. I was expecting to get them the next day from the PPR department. When I left school at 16 I never could have imagined that I would one day have a degree, let alone in philosophy, politics and economics!

Sadly we had to cancel a holiday for last week because it was just too far away from my Grandma. The boy had the week off school though, so I made sure we had two days off together. We went to Lightwater Valley and had a wonderful time. A full review will follow shortly. I also took the children to the seaside for one night and survived in a hotel by myself with them. It was actually really good fun!

Here's what has made me happy this week...

  •  My uncle found this bee orchid in the field at my grandma's. It was the first he had ever seen in his life and he was so excited about it.
  • This amazing strawberry I picked at grandma's. It was absolutely delicious. She has a wonderful crop this year.

  • These fairground horses at Lightwater Valley. I love the intricate detail on them.
  • Amazing clouds and beautiful sunshine.

  • Watching the children play at the seaside. It was a bit chilly when we got there, but luckily warmed up. We also had the beach to ourselves, which was brilliant.
