Graduation day!

Yesterday was graduation day at my uni, and a good day was had by all. The weather was good, the gowns were appropriately Harry Potter-like, the ceremony was mercifully shorter than last time I graduated, and we didn't have to sing in Latin again which was a bonus! The garden party was champagne-filled, and in the evening I went out for dinner with my family and my friend Elaine, her parents, and her flatmate Anna.

Now I'm back home, and today was very exciting for several reasons:

Firstly, I went to look at a car with my dad, and I think we are gonna buy it which is awesome! I am very happy, it's a great car, and it's pretty which is good, and the reverse is in the right place (down right, opposite 5th, not push-down-and-in-first-ish) which is brilliant.

Secondly, I went to a financial advisor and learned all about ISAs, which was really interesting - I am loving the finances.

Thirdly, while I was out doing the above, my mum had a go at my pigsty room that I've been struggling with for weeks and made it beautiful in like 2 hours! It must be a mum thing.

So anyway it's been a good day.

Now I am watching Election, I'd forgotten how funny it is! More another time.

Sounds like a great day! A car... I'd love one of those!

He grew up in Kenya, and since that's a British colony (or was? I am completely uneducated when it comes to Africa) he has his British accent from there. It is SO HOT!!!

Wow, what a lovely day :-)

And fiestas rock! I love my little fiesta even though it is a bit more ancient than the one in the picture. Did you buy it in the end?
