Double Graduation Month

Ian and I both graduated last month. Ian from his Masters degree and me from my honours degree. Mine took place at home in Waterford during the first week of January. While Ian's was two weeks later up in Limerick city. 

The chapel in WIT where the ceremony was held.

GrĂ¡inne and me after we graduated

My college bestie Gail - so ridiculously proud of her for getting so far, doing so well and going on further!!

Me with degree in hand, being grateful to my better half for supporting me over the past 5 years of study.

Mum, brother Richard and me enjoying a glass of champagne before heading out to The Olive Tree, a local tapas bar. Great night had by all.

Fast forward a fortnight, time off work and a car packed full of outfits and make-up.

Ian looking dapper in his gown, such a pity boys don't wear caps.

Back in the Absolute Hotel, getting ready for dinner out in Marco Polo's and meeting up with classmates for a few farewell beverages.

Ended up in an awful nightclub (is there any other kind?) but had a brilliant time.

Thankfully we had booked into the hotel for two nights because my husband overdid the celebrations a little too much and ended up staying in bed until ten o'clock the following night!!

Fun times

Very proud of both of us for working hard and doing so well. Congratulations to everyone else who graduated recently or ever. Now what does the future hold.....????

Thanks again for stopping by.

With love,

Gem xx
