Artists and Achievements..

I think I've mentioned once or twice before that some members of my family are very artistic, and I've shown examples of their art (in fact I have a draft post about when my grandfather started painting very late in life~ must finish that sometime!).
So you can imagine my delight when my eldest grandson, Dillon (he who made us curry), gave Embee and I this lovely picture for Christmas. It was one that he drew especially for us and it will be treasured and hung on my wall as soon as it is framed~ so you know what we are doing later today!
*******************************************
Also today is my son-law's birthday so Happy Birthday Joules.

I also want to publicly congratulate Joules on recently becoming a Bachelor of Engineering Technology (hope I've got that right!) He has achieved this going to college on a part-time basis, mostly during the evenings, over a five year period. He has worked incredibly hard and was very dedicated so I am delighted he was rewarded by achieving a Distinction.

Ben (who seems to be the ideas man in this house) has elected that we go to TGI Fridays for dinner, not my first choice but everyone can eat something from there. I'm going to try and skype you.

What a talented family you have Chris!

Congrats to all.

I don't think Ben and I would get on - since I am the ideas person in my household and would never choose to go there! Do you remember when we took Dillon there in London before even Mollie was born?

WHy did Beccy no tell me she was married to a genius? It's his birthday and she didn't even hint at his distinction.

What a lovely gift!

Happy birthday to the sil and be careful if you venture out later - your weather looks a little dreary.

Beccy did mention Joules result in her NY day post.

actually it wasn't you mum - sorry I was talking to Beccy in your comments. Me and her took Dill to TGIF in Covent Garden when he was wee.

No I don't remember Sam. I think with your tastes and Ben's the two of you could never eat out in the same place!

Although Sam I do remember going there when Dillon was little here in Dublin, out in Tallaght, before Mollie was born.
