A day for celebration

Belle's Graduation
20th June 2009

It's been a big day in the Ahab household.

Belle, after seven years of hard work, has graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Literature from the Open University. I am so proud of the way she has stuck at this task during some very difficult years, and to end up with a First - Congratulations!

Today was the
official graduation ceremony at Symphony Hall, Birmingham - which was the scene of my own graduation twelve years ago.

A new frock was purchas
ed and a gown ordered and she looked stunning (as well as very clever).

The ceremony was followed by a family celebratory meal at The Living Room on Broad Street. So what connection can all this have with the waterways?

Well, its a bit tenuous but:

1. A lot of
the study took place on Wand'ring Bark
2. The award ceremony took place alongside Brindley Place

3. The meal was in a room overlooking Gas Street Basin (design - not chance).

Congratulations Belle, I am so proud of you. Here's to the Masters you start on the Autumn.
