Smiling the whole day long….

Today is a very very good day.

Exam results were released this was morning. Tulip was out so I asked if I could check for him – I think I was more anxious than him.  After an age of “This page cannot be loaded” and watching that circle going round and around I went to make a coffee.
Should I mention that I had the 2 laptops and the netbook trying to get into the results page?  Maybe best not show how sad I am 😉

Coffee in hand, wee shamrock #2 watching me pacing with a worried expression on her face probably thinking “Parents are from Pluto” the screen finally showed the results page.  Cue loud squeal and a whole lot of muttering to myself I finally reached the actual results.

You know when you are so desperate to find something out that you just cannot make sense of the letters, words and numbers in front of you? Yes that is exactly what happened.  One forced deep breath later, I saw the line that would determine our future

“First Class Honours”




I am so very proud of my husband!  This also means that our dream to move east side is very much in our reach. *happy happy happy*


To celebrate he was allowed to make the steak, his favourite meal with whiskey sauce ❤


The 2013 checklist :  Taken from the very first post I wrote on here:

  • Moving to Dublin
  • Restarting my Early Childhood Education honours degree
  • Turning 40
  • Husband graduating  *tick*
  • Having a family filled summer
