Graduation Party Thank you 😊

Graduation Party Thank you 😊

How very kind of you all to come to my graduation party 🎓🎉.

Having ordered in the champagne, just in case, I went out for a swim after work. How wonderful though to see you all in my sitting room, as I turned on the light "Surprise!" You all shouted and raised your glasses, handing me one as you did.

Of course we have fruit juice and water, still or sparkling, for those who don't drink alcohol. And mocktails too. Supper is a Mary Berry chicken dish with spinach, baby button mushrooms and crème fraîche. Glad I prepared that earlier. Then for the vegetarians amongst us, there's eggs florentine. Do you notice a theme here . . . Popeye springs to mind!

Conversation flows as well as the champagne. Running shoes are discussed, gait analysis, best runs, worse runs, mediocre runs, running kit, lights, music 🎶, ailments, parkruns, half marathons, full marathons, gosh you are a sporty lot, and so so knowledgeable.

My goodness, is that the time? Thank you so much for coming. Some of you have come such a long way, other parts of the UK, other countries, and I really appreciate you joining me. Here you are ladies, a single red rose🌹 and for you gentlemen, a party balloon 🎈 and a toy car 🚗 or a lego kit, you choose! Good bye, 'bye, safe journey home!

Oh and the best bit about a cyber party, there's no clearing up!

Happy running! 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻🍾🍾🍾🌹🌹🌹🚗🚗🚗😊😊😊

Thanks Flossie.

I had a super time..the company was marvellous and the champagne was wonderful.. I ate far too much but, luckily, as it was a virtual party, I do not have to do a few more kilometres on my trainer, to chase off those calories.:)

It was lovely to share your success. Well done :)

PS

Virtual party means no morning after headache, either!

Lovely graduation party Flossie.

Is there a blip on the site still ju-ju- holding up the badge ceremony?

Wasn't it great? Good point about the blip! "I want my badge!" [stamps foot, frowns, begins to get frustrated] 😡Ha, ha, lol 😂 "Patience is a virtue," my delightfully impatient mother taught me. "Do as I say, not as I do" was another gem. Lol 😂

There are a couple of others waiting too Flossie.

Maybe they are having to make a new batch for all the new fantastic runners coming through..😊

Haha! Lovely party and huge congratulations to you. But where's your badge? In all the excitement of the party it seems to have been missed ☹️

Ha! Yes! I think the admin team are rather busy, or possibly nursing their virtual hangovers 😉

Maybe a gentle reminder - they're normally very responsive.
