Last Friday we went to attend Sarah's graduation ceremony at Oxford Brookes University, accompanied by her brother and her boyfriend, Joe.
We drove through heavy rain but luckily the afternoon remained dry: it was very hot in the marquee and it would also have been a crush if everyone had had to crowd in out of the rain.
There were a lot of proud parents, grandparents and some very relieved and high-spirited begowned and bemortared students.
Also a lovely flower arrangement!
Anna sadly didn't come with us, as it was her Year 13 Ball in Bristol that evening.
