Congratulations to DD

It's not often I mention our kids, as honestly what they get up to generally is only interesting to us and the family. However I couldn't let this go by without "bragging" about it.

Dd has finished her graduate studies and has officially completed her university education after 6 years. She now has a Masters degree in Information Studies (I hope that's what it is...LOL) Regardless she's done.......

She has got a 12 month contract in Records Management with a large Insurance Company in downtown Toronto (corporate office), she was also offered another job with another company, but again it was a 12 month contract with no prospect of it turning into full time after that. With this company there is a good chance they will take her on full time after the 12 months.

She is the only one of her friends from school to walk out of university with a job, so she did well.

Her boyfriend is taking her to Mexico for a week to celebrate, and have a break before she starts working full-time on May 4th. They also are moving into a larger condo before the end of the month, so she is a busy girl.

So "Cons" I just wanted to tell you that your dad and me are ever so proud of you. You have worked so hard over these past few years in school and deserve all the success in the world.

With lots of love, Mam and Dad

("Cons" is her shortened name, as when ds was a toddler he couldn't pronounce her full name and it has stuck, close family call her that)

For those of you who are participating in the Daily Savings Club (is there anyone participating?) you should have $9 in your pot now, keep up the good work!

Let me be the first to congratulate you! Bragging about family only crosses the line when it's constant. We're all allowed the occasional brag and this one was deserved!

Well done to 'Cons' but to Mum too!
I was inspired by your daily savings scheme and have been putting away $1 a day (NOTE this is a New Zealand dollar :-) ) and am enjoying the dreaming of what i shall spend it on at years end.
