How proud I was on Thursday

How proud I was on Thursday
My Daughter Sophie Graduated
 She got her BA(hons) Artist Blacksmithing

Over the years Sophie has been many things besides a cherished Daughter
She was never afraid to be different!
She was a beautiful young lady at her school leavers ball

 A bossy farm helper
 A Kitten at a Pop festival

 A Dinosaur
 Hello Kitty Lover
And a tiny female blacksmith amongst big burly men blacksmiths

An Exhibitor
Exhibiting her work 26-29th June 2013 New Designers in London
Sophie's work is the brightly colored exhibit at the end

The Big Day Arrived
sat in the Green Dragon Hotel in Hereford
after being photographed
Waiting nervously for the procession to Hereford Catheadral
for the ceremony
 Sophie's Graduation Day 

Inside the cathedral  waiting for the two hour ceremony to start
we had to be in by 2.30 for 3pm 
I was admiring the architecture but had to stop looking up when vertigo took over

Hereford Cathedral

GEDC0363 - Copy
 Two Hours Later on one of the hottest days of the year
it was all over
and we where back outside


Then It was time for the flying hats tradition


And the hugs & the laughs

Then off for champagne
It was a lovely day and I was a very proud parent 

Have a great weekend


  1. Congratulations to her! I love the fun pictures you shared! :0)

  2. Thank you Terry I will tell her!
    We sure had fun & giggles after the champagne
