It's been a difficult couple of weeks with my husband being away on his cycle ride to London and everybody having to adjust to the new dynamic at home now that Ivy has moved back for the foreseeable future to work out what she wants to do with her life.
It was especially lovely, therefore, to have a day yesterday that was purely about celebration as Ivy graduated from the University of Northampton with her BA in Film and Television Studies. The ceremony was just the right mix of pomp and uncontained exuberance. Ivy was radiant.
I hope that whatever career Ivy chooses, she will to pursue it with the same enthusiasm that she had for her degree course and that her future will be as bright as the smile she wore yesterday.
