Dr Andy

We took an entire day off yesterday, doing absolutely nothing related to moving house, because it was time to celebrate something else entirely.


After starting university as a future engineer in 2002, switching to marine biology in 2003, doing an undergrad degree, an honours, and then a PhD, Dr Andy has graduated.

And I managed to coerceconvince him to go through the ceremony, so he donned his best Hogwart's robes, put on his floppy hat, but we couldn't find the wands. Congratulations, Doc!

Congratulations to Andy!! I'm so glad you convinced him to go to the ceremony - after all those years, it's worth while dressing up and being celebrated for a night :)

I always think "yay! Mercator for a day!" when I see that outfit. Way easier to go to tech college and become a Cartographer and be Mercator every day ; )

So glad you did the full graduation celebration. It is a Mammoth achievement and you and your families must be incredibly proud. Congratulations Dr. Andy.
