Joey: cheeky! D-------s but it's more in the science of what sells rather than behind the counter.

I think M&S could do with Tom's help then, after I've read how they are struggling at the moment.

Pat said...

Joey: They'll just have to struggle on wthout him:)

Mickle in NZ said...

Seeing the hood's broad band of red across the front of Tom's academic robes has me wondering - what is the colour of his degree's academic hood?

Did you know that the graduate robe of St Andrew's university up in Scotland is bright red?

All of the teachers at my secondary school here in NZ graduated from universities who had a black academic robe. However, those with qualifications from outside NZ wore wonderfully coloured academic hoods. We only got to see all this glory on our teachers at the annual end of year prize ceremony.

Pat said...

Mickle : as far as I can ascertain from his father it is just plain black.

Macy said...

Bless - graduation, a new job and worldwide fame on t'internet!
Congrats to the boy!

Pat said...

Macy: sadly I don't think he reads Gran's blog.

I wish young Tom all the very best! Oh to be starting on that journey again. (Or would I? No, I'm quite happy with now!) Handsome lad, must be in the genes! :¬)

Pat said...

Map: thank you. I never think of him as handsome. He's just great to have around.

Kim Ayres said...

I really could have sworn I left my congratulations here a couple of days ago. My apologies - it appears I didn't. Please accept them belatedly

Pat said...

Kim: not to worry. With someone like you I take it as read. I don't know how you manage to do all you do - AND persistently beat me at Scrabble!!
But I'm getting better.
