The Graduate


Brief post today – just to say I’m graduating tomorrow!

A ceremony in the Sheldonian (pictured) where we will have someone speak at us in Latin, bestowing upon us the Power of Lecturing, amongst other things. After that I will be able to wear my mortar board (cap) as much as I like – up until this date it came with a £35 fine. But had to be carried to exams.

All rather silly, but also rather special. I’ll let you know how it went…

    Well I’d say that’s rather special! Congratulations and have a lovely day. I remember the day of my college graduation very, very fondly.

    Congratulations! I’ve been to an Oxford graduation ceremony as a proud parent: it’s totally OTT and I’m sure you and your guests will love it.

    So you graduate from carrying to wearing … isn’t that a glorious tradition?

    Happy, happy day.

    I’m reading this after the event but hope you had a wonderful time. I went to the Sheldonian when Mr. C. was being ‘doctored’ – he made three entrances, each time in a different gown – talk about Shirley Bassey!!

    The Mother managed without the kleenex but glowed with delight and pride! OVW
