Well done Ben!

Steve, Luke and I have just got back from a wonderful trip to the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, where we had gone to watch Ben's Sovereign's Parade and attend his commissioning ball. I am so proud I could burst!

This is Ben just after completing the Sovereign's Parade - a big sigh of relief all round, after all the tension of the last few weeks!

 After the parade we had a lovely lunch then in the evening there was a gorgeous ball, themed as Alice in Wonderland, complete with a rabbit-hole entrance to the marquee and a mad hatter! There was also a spectacular firework display.

And this is my gorgeous son in his new mess dress ready to join his new regiment! Doesn't he look handsome!

 I am struggling a bit with a hangover, so will add more in the next few days and keep you posted on his progress!

    Wow, you must be so so proud of your dashing son. Glad to hear that you all had a wonderful time. Did you shed a tear or two? Hope that you've got over the hangover! xx Yes I am very proud and tears were shed! You can't help remembering them as a little lad and wondering just how they got to be so special!
