Celebrate the Small Things and Express Yourself

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop hosted by Viklit over at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week.

Here's what I'm celebrating this week:

- I've finished my dissertation! I sent it off to get bound yesterday, and I hand it in next Wednesday. It's so nice to finally have it done and finished, though it's been such a big part of my life for the last few months that I don't know what to do with myself now! I'm sure I'll find something :)

- My sister graduated on Tuesday with a 2:1 BA Honours degree in Law. The graduation was amazing; the ceremony was held in Lincoln Cathedral, which is where I had my undergraduate graduation, and it's just beautiful. We had a great day celebrating.

- My sister and I saw a friend on Wednesday who we haven't seen in about two years, so it was nice to have a catch up with him! He's about to do a Masters at Edinburgh University, so I imagine it'll be a long while before we see him again! He did say something about us visiting him at Christmas. 

And now for the Express Yourself meme, co-hosted by Dani and Jackie. Each week bloggers answer a different question, so they can get to know each other better.

This week's post is to share some photos of anything you want. I haven't posted pictures on here in a while, so this should be fun!

The first and only time I've ever seen them lay near each other without hissing.
P.S. Look how big Misty is now!
She likes to lay on my bookshelf, though I think she has to squeeze herself in now.

This is one of my favourite pictures of her - I love it when she falls asleep with her mouth open. 
And here's one where she's wide awake :)
Here are some from Spain (I will do a full post eventually, I promise!)

My sister and I in Benidorm

Our shadows...
And Benidorm again :)
And finally a couple from Tuesday's Graduation:

This is an actual tree-trunk that's been carved, it looks amazing! This is in Lincoln Castle, where the graduation reception was held :)
