You'll have too watch all these wine you now know what the doctors have said grin.

Thankyou all (I shall take no notice of the doctors for the present).

To add to my little story, my DD was never considered academic more the practical type.

She has been a lone parent since her partner was murdered and has worked so hard, bought a house and has done her degree course part time whilst working so I am SHOUTING HER ACHIEVEMENT from the housetopsgringringrin

Have just toasted her...with Ribena smile. Well done that girl!

Iloveroses One of my daughters, also not considered academic at school, also got a first and had to do her degree part time. It takes an incredible amount of focus and determination and under the circumstances I quite agree that your daughter's achievement deserves to be made much of. smile

Fantastic achievement, Iloveroses you will know more than any of us how fantastic it is.
Cheers to you both because I'm sure you have played a part in this wonderful realisation of talent and potential.
I think 2 glasses are in order here!!

congratulations and your good news.

It takes some doing under normal circumstances but to achieve what has given the difficulties she has had makes it even more special.

To her future wine

Many many congratulations to you and your daughter. I'm raising a small glass to my GD who got off to a difficult premature start last year, spending her first week in neo-natal intensive care. Today she is crawling with confidence and panache, just teetering on the brink of walking and will celebrate her 1st birthday on the 15th July. To all of our babies who are thriving after a shaky start.......cheers!!
