Celebrating the past, looking forward to the future

This week has been an absolute whirlwind. Brendan's family arrived on Thursday to celebrate his graduation on Friday. His Graduation was at Parliament house and I couldn't help but be so proud. Even though he has been working as a teacher for the last 2 months it was really nice to be able to celebrate everything he achieved over the last four years. We stayed out until 3am in the morning which I never do any more (I am too much of a grandma these days) and meant I spent most of Saturday in bed, oh well it was worth it.


It is really exciting for our future too. We have lots of plans for the next few years the first one being (hopefully) moving to the UK for a year in February. Brendan lived there for a year when he was 19 and now we want to go back and do it together. So the rest of the year is going to be spent saving up and planning our trip, I cant wait for our new adventure!


My sister arrives this afternoon and we are heading straight to see the Hunger Games, so excited!!
