What Katy Did Next



Tomorrow we are driving cross country to Hertfordshire to collect my youngest daughter, Kat. The last time we saw her in August she was about to commence ten challenging weeks of basic training with the Royal Air Force. She graduated in November, swore her oath to the Queen and is now a fully inducted airwoman. We can’t wait to hear what she’s been up to.  

Christmas will give us some precious days with her before she goes off to Shropshire to commence her three year apprenticeship in aircraft mechanical engineering.  I still can’t believe my girly girl is doing this!

    1. She's got a lot going for her, she just doesn't realise it.

  5. Isn't it strange seeing what our children become. You expect them to become a doctor, and they become a dentist instead (not mine).

    1. Mine have certainly surprised me. (A dentist in the family would have been very useful though.)

  7. Congratulations to Katy! Kids grow up too fast! You have a lovely family Sue.

    I made the Dundee cake, thanks to you Sue, and I'm so very pleased with it - I'm going to sin of pride when I take it to our family Christmas lunch! I don't think any of my family has tasted one before.

  8. Wonderful training provided when you take the Queen's 10p. Good for her, one can only hope that she gets to use her skills before someone in Air Force blue takes her fancy.

  10. She is obviously following her dream. I'm so glad our children are able to choose their path and do what they WANT to do. that way they usually succeed.

  11. We just want them to be happy, the right path isn't always obvious.
