We’re heading off into the sunshine for a picnic – can’t wait.
The most important accessories are packed, the food is cooked and prepared… we’re ready to go! (Just got to wait for Sophie to wake up!)
Sophie nearly made me cry yesterday.
I know, I know, not a hugely manly thing to admit, but hey, it’s the 21st century and we can be honest about our feelings.
And, unfortunately, it wasn’t tears of enjoyment – the kind that roll down your face in a delighted sort of way.
No, it was that crushing sense of rejection that came from nowhere and only lasted for a moment, but it hit home.
Let me explain.
If you know me at all, you’re probably thinking this post is way overdue.
You would know that my wife is the incredibly hard-working, diligent one in our family who sorts lots of things out and beavers away fixing things, usually before I’ve even noticed there’s a problem.
However, this post isn’t about all those amazing bits and pieces she does to keep everything in order.
Rather, it’s in honour of just how much work she has put in for a big exam she is facing and, in my opinion, she should pass with flying colours.
As my blog from the other day tried to suggest, it was a real treat to study History with so many quality people.
Many of the others in the photo I have lots of time and respect for and would love to know what they are up to now.
(Probably been swallowed into the craziness of London living – but that’s OK!)
We were thrilled on Saturday to celebrate the wedding of “History legend” Charlie to her top new husband Sam.
For my wife and I, it was a great chance to catch up with some of the people who I enjoyed three happy years studying with back at Nottingham Uni 2004-2007.
Ironically, Facebook was more than happy to confirm it was the 9th anniversary of our History ball, firing up all sorts of ridiculous pictures of a night out down Chapel Row in Nottingham.
So, here’s a tribute to all the History crew. I wonder what you’re all doing now!
