First Class!

Some wonderful news to share with you. Ben got his degree results on Thursday and he has got a First Class Honours degree! In fact his actual award is BSc (Hons) Computing - First Class Honours with Certificate of Professional Industrial Experience! What a mouthful!

We are so proud of him words can't really express it. He has worked so hard over the past four years - the first two at uni, then a year working for GlaxoSmithKline and then the last year back at uni in Plymouth again. Through the first two years he also held down a job with Carphone Warehouse, working Saturday and Sunday every week, so to achieve what he has is fantastic.

Last night we went out, the four of us to celebrate. We let Ben choose where he would like to go, and so we went to the Outback Steakhouse and my diet went out of the window! We had a wonderful family meal and then this afternoon Hugh and I took him to Lakeside and he chose a watch for his graduation present. We are now waiting for the graduation ceremony which is to take place in Plymouth in September - lots of photos to scrap then I hope!

In the meantime, before we went out last night Penny took some photos of Ben with me and Hugh.

I like this photo, although it looks as if Ben and Hugh don't like me as they are leaning away from me!
This is nice, but Ben isn't really smiling! Think I will have to go for the top photo!
And then there is this one where he was trying not to have hysterics over something Hugh had said!
