    Pleased would be an understatement :)

    She was expecting a 2:1 but ended up 6 points above the mark for a 1st.

    Great day, reminded me of my time at Cambridge.

    I actually cried like a baby. I wouldn’t normally but I’d had something else done at the house and had 4 days of absolute rage that I couldn’t let go. When she phoned with the good news I just let it all go. Very strange :LOL::cry:

    The money is in jetting drains and unblocking gullies, not spreadsheets.

    It's a great feeling when your sprogs do well, no shame in being proud. Give her a pat on the back for me.(y)

    Well that's your retirement plans sorted out, you need to get those super comfy slippers ordered, ready.

    On a more serious note, it's great your daughter has done a proper vocational degree, not Meejia studies.

    I did an orangery for an accountant 3 years ago, she had her own accountancy firm, massive house and she drove a Porsche Carrera. I seem to recall her clients were mostly offshore.

    My Dad was an accountant -financial director. I did bookkeeping course, but found it boring, I'm more interested in hands on not papershuffling.

    I spent a lot of time at Cambridge, I had a girlfriend who went to Fitzwilliam college, Cambridge. It's certainly steeped in tradition, those formal dinners, 'the quad', etc etc it all goes on. It's all a bit Harry Potter.
