Sophie's graduation

Sophie is 11 !!! and it is now popular to have a graduation before they move on to high school.... She really did not want to go. Mainly I think because she did not want to wear a dress but doesn't she look gorgeous..
She had her hair and 'makeup' done.... So had a right pampering. Her aunt made some jewellry for her.. Not on the photo, it hadn't been delivered.
She has had a busy and tiring week. Yesterday she had a school trip to London to see The sound of music. Had lunch in a place called the Rainforest Cafe. She was mega impressed with that. Didn't get home until 10pm last night. Tonight the prom and then tomorrow night is off on hols with her dad.... A whole week and she can't wait.

Can't believe it is so long since I last wrote.... Thought you might like to see a picture of the village where I live. Looks good on a sunny day but we haven't had many of those lately.

Finish up work this week for 6 weeks.. The time has flown by. Will be off on our hols before I know it...
The other pics of the canal which runs through pontnewydd... Lovely for long walks with Tommy.. again taken on a gorgeous day... Planning a few walks on my 6 weeks off.. If the weather is good enough....
