a very proud wife (who may also do a little bragging!)

(bragging begins)

On Friday night we went to an 'Engineers Australia' awards night (riveting stuff ;) as SP was nominated for 'Young Professional Engineer of the Year' award (NSW)! It was the last award of the evening and as they began to announce it my little heart started pumping for my husband - who might I add is very humble and non-assuming and not dazed by these kinds of things, he wouldn't have cared too much either way.

So they announce the winner: And the winner is.... dom dom dom...... SP.

I was like so proud of my husband! . He collected his award, did a little speech and now we have to go to another 'national' awards evening in November in Canberra (about 3 weeks before Squiggly is due - hope I don't get too excited and have the baby there and then) where he will be in the running to win the Australia wide award for 'Young Professional Engineer of the Year'!

We have another dinner to go to on Friday night for the 'not so young' engineers of Australia awards where he will have to give a 30 second speech - please pray for him ;)

Lots of people came up to him after wards and his work colleagues have been calling and emailing him to congratulate him. The thing I love is that he is so 'whatever' about it - I mean he realises it is an honour to be awarded with this award in his industry, but he just loves what he does and so that's what really matters to him.

This means I have to do the bragging for him because he won't! I am very proud of my very clever husband!

(end of bragging)
