HELLO again all ladies...
Well this blog is about my eldest son who has just arrived back in Australia after 6 months studying law at a Japanese uni/.
regular followers of my blog will know that I visited him in Japan over Christmas/new years...and had a wonderful time..
so again this blog may seem a little self indulgent..but I keep saying to myself..dont feel guilty about writing about your family/yourself..etc as this is kind of what a blog is about??? isnt it??
(I Have run this past byron before listing it...and he is happy to have it on my site!! although I must say..he has NO idea what it is actually about or photos??
cross fingers when he reads it!!!
unlike younger son...who would be horrified)..
with this blog..I actually hope i am letting you YOUNGER mums know...(from
MY experience...what JOY ones efforts in bringing up your children...with love/affection..self confidence & guidance..that little bit of freedom (when required!!)... CAN end up with total enjoyment/pleasure with their achievements later in their life..which means LATER IN YOUR LIFE!!
(jee wiz...I am beginning to sound like some educational guru!! this is not what this is about)..maybe I should become MRS DR PHIL!!!
BUT I am JUST soo proud of my son with his results he just received back from his 6 months stint in Japan.,..,(just got them back today)..
He did 14 subjects...ALL lectured to him in japanese..
his exams were all in japanese..
he had to write all his answers in japanese..
SOO for 6 months...his uni lectures were all in japanese .. NO english...
AND he has passed them ALL.....5 with A's...4 with B's....and the rest with C's...
I just think this is a wonderful effort from him...as a lot of these subjects involved Japanese constitutional law...taxation law...japanese criminal law...(some of these subjects he hasnt even studied in his aussie degree as yet).
and having studied Law myself some 100 years ago !!!...well some 30 odd years at least!!
at melb uni,....I can ONLY marginally begin to comprehend his achievements...I struggled to comprehend many of my law subjects..(taxation/trusts/company law)..in ENGLISH...let alone a foreign language!!!
SOO i know this is another BIT of a self indulgent post..
BUT ...as he lives in another state...and reads his old mums blog...just wanted to POST a HUGE congrats to him....
AND TO LET HIM KNOW...HOW PROUD WE ALL ARE OF HIM~~
He works hard...loves his study... SO WELL DONE..OLD BOY>>> !
soo to get back to the original point....ALL you YOUNGISH! mums out there...with little children....(there is light at the end of the tunnel!! just joking)...
But when they do grow up...and achieve...whatever that may be...in whatever field they choose....
IT is a LOVELY feeling to know that you (mum & dad)...have actually ACHIEVED something worthwhile and valuable in life...bringing up a WONDERFUL CHILD..SOMEONE YOU CAN BE JUST SOO PROUD OF..& NOW ENJOY THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS....(I think i dont have much more to achieve?? MMM!! what else can I do)...??
ps...my other son is achieving just as much....(but he likes to remain a bit more incognito~~ he thinks he is a bit more TRENDY!! )....and ONLY likes to promote himself on facebook or whatever it is called!! I think he would yell at me for putting him on my blog...SHHHH!! he doesnt know about that skiiing photo..o that of his girlfriend....and I keep HUSH about all that)..
have just included a little time line of Byron's growth...thought it kind of adds to appreciate this blog...??
THEY ARE ALL OUT OF ORDER (AGAIN!!) and a tad blurry...(sorry about that)..BUT I hope you all get the drift/meaning of the photos...
have a lovely weekend everyone..
xx andrea...(ps ...had my hair done today...and very happy...but too embarrassed to add that to this blog site...I think there is only soo much one can take of ones own family/personal photos in a blog listing etc)!!
