Graduation Day UCL - Sept 2011 - Rhys & Martin
After our son Rhys decided he did not want to attend the Graduation Day for his Bachelor degree we laid down the law about financing his Masters. If you pass this time then we get our big day out, after all I do not have to explain just how much this day out in the rain in Central London cost. Five years of tuition both at universities in London does not come cheap. Me and Esther earned this opportunity the hard way.
The Mortar Board and gown cost £40 for just two hours wear as well. Now all he has to do is find a job. There's always a fly in the ointment.
Sadly his sister was flying to Sydney when this was going on so we couldn't get his friend Martin to capture that rarest of pictures, a complete family shot. I think the last one we have was taken in 1989. Martin is the other young man in the picture. He's from Switzerland and he stayed with us for a few days before and after the event. Always a pleasure to have about the place.
