There are days when you wake to a bit of grey cloud, when the hot water takes an age to run, when the toaster seems to have reset itself to a light char setting and the milk is on the cusp of dodgy. When the dog’s lead refuses to clip and I’m out of poo bags. The drizzle starts and I’ve left my hat behind and I don’t see the loose paving stone which sends dirty water up my trousers.
All first world issues, but all prone to take the gloss off a day. So when, on Friday I heard, within 5 minutes of each other that (a) the Vet had passed her finals and was now a fully fledged Veterinarian Doctor and (b) the Lawyer had been offered the job he wants when he qualifies in September I must say any and all the above or any combination would not have mattered in the slightest. After all we can be proud of our offspring and their achievements but when both come up with such success, well, it feels as if my work is done!
