Well that’s the first one

Posted in Other Stuff by 200

The first of the little Weeks family graduated from university. I am now the proud father of a child with a First Class Honours Degree in Science.

She becomes the first member of the northern branch of the family Weeks to qualify with a university degree.  What’s more, she has got a job after just her second interview, in order to gain two years in the workplace before she can return for her Masters.

I had high hopes for her at uni, after all, she made head girl at school and obtained the best GCSE results in the whole district with one A and 10 A*s. It was great to realise that she had her dad’s brains and her mother’s good looks, there’d have been no hope if it was the other way round. (I jest, I’m actually quite dashing!)

Proud, much?

You bet.

And thankful that when she was making her life choices, law enforcement didn’t figure.

    I’m just a blue collar, overweight, under educated copper so it’s nice to hear of somebody doing well. Congratulations to her……

    I was chuffed when my son got a first and is nearing the end of his Phd.
    Iasked the wife where he got his brains from and she told me it wasn’t her so it must be his father. Needless to say I am still looking for him……….

    Being a top graduate, would she be interested in a job starting at 19k on a short term contract with no pension?

    Any chance of her working alongside Brian Cox on the TV soon, so we can all determine where she got her looks from (we already know she really got her brains from her Mum)? Congrats to her.
