Day 209

Birthday girl

The Little Miss is 4 years old!!

I can’t believe that this little bundle of fun is 4 already and she has been so looking forward to this day. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t kind to us and the bouncy castle we had booked was cancelled due to the winds but we still had a fabulous birthday party down at my Dad’s house.

I am so grateful that we have this little girl to keep us on our toes. She makes me both howl with laughter and she makes me utterly furious at times. She is unbelievably stubborn and stroppy and she is currently perfecting an excellent range of tantrums. She is also kind and loving and especially loves her cousins and grandparents as well as her pussy cats.

Eliza my darling we love you so much. Keep being feisty and stubborn. I’ll get some more gin in. That should see me through x

Day 107

My sister is 40!

Today this funny face is 40!!!!

My little sister is 40 today and despite being jet-lagged, tired and busy we went out for a meal to a local restaurant. I even made her a Black Forest Gateau as that is what my Mum would have made us as a birthday cake!

I am hugely grateful that I have a sister. We haven’t always got on though, there was a period in my life when I was really struggling and I wasn’t very nice or kind to her. However, I don’t want to dwell on that. We got through it, made up and have been great friends since then.

Since Mum died she has been the most amazing support, especially with the kids and I am grateful that I have her to moan at, complain about the kids behaviours with, catch up on the gossip, drink wine with, share walks with her stupid dog.

So fishface I love you. Happy birthday xxxx

Day 29

Birthday boyToday is The Mister’s birthday. Unfortunately we were all working or at school but we managed to go out for dinner this evening before I went to choir.

I love this man with my whole heart. He is generous and kind and I am so happy that I get to share my life with him.

He is one of my very biggest blessings. Happy birthday Paul x

Day 5

Dad's 70thToday my amazing Dad hit the ripe old age of 70 – I still think he is looking pretty young!

We had a little party for him. These days it feels like we should seize every opportunity to spend time together and celebrate the good things.

We had a fantastic night out at a local restaurant who could not have helped us more. Completely amazing…. and this fabulous cake topped off the evening.

So Dad, Happy birthday. You are truly an inspiration and we all love you very much… now onto Uganda for a trip with him and my sister to check out some This is Epic Charity projects. Amazing!

This evening we went for a fantastic meal at a local Chinese restaurant with friend. It was lovely to eat non-Christmassy food, drink decent wine and cocktails and catch up with our friends. Happy days.

A year in pictures – Day 210

Party day

We had planned to have a little party in the garden at our house today but it has been absolutely torrential rain!

We decamped to my Dad’s house as he has a lovely spacious conservatory and a prize=winning garden that looks nice from inside!

The Little Miss had a lovely party and was happy to wear her party dress, accessorised in her own style of course!

2016 Project366 (Day 358)

Birthday walk

I have had the most brilliant birthday today – I think I enjoyed it even more than the big 4-0 last year maybe it was less of a big deal so it just felt lovely.

It has been the most beautiful day so this morning I walked to the beach and met my sister and cousin and the kids down there. We spend a good couple of hours walking the dog and the kids spent ages playing on the sand and jumping and rolling around. We then met my Dad for lunch at the local pub.

This evening The Mister and I went on the bus into town with my cousin Beccy and he husband Pierre to see my cousins band Clameur de Haro play. It was a fab night out and we even experienced the entertainment of the night bus home.

Thankyou for all your gifts, cards and best wishes. It has been a fabulous day!

2015 Project365 (Day 357)

Birthday girl

Today I reached the grand old age of 40. The date has been on the horizon for an entire year but to be honest I have been feeling fairly philosophical about it all!

I went out for lunch with my sister and her kids, and my Dad and The Mister and the kids and then I went and had my hair cut. It was fab to have a little bit of time to myself.

In the evening I had a party. I felt a bit like a drama queen insisting on having a party, especially as it is so close to Christmas but it was awesome to see so many people and to get the chance to catch up.

Of course the one person I wish could have been there is my Mum. 40 years ago today she brought me into the world and I would have loved her to be there to celebrate it me. Such is life though. I wore her locket so she was there in some way.

A massive thankyou to The Mister, my sister and my Dad for organising my party. It was fab and I appreciated it so much.

Such an awesome day and thanks to everyone who helped me to celebrate.

2015 Project365 (Day 348)

The Little MisterThree years ago today our lives changed in every way. This wonderful little boy made an appearance and he has continued to make us smile.

The Little Mister is funny and smart, opinionated and loving, kind and confident but shy around strangers and in situations he is unfamiliar with. He is becoming ever so chatty and I am starting to hear back the phrases I use with him all the time.

Happy birthday to my best boy. We love you so very much xxxx

2015 Project365 (Day 346)

Today you are 3

It has been such a busy day. I was up at 6.30am and was making egg sandwiches by 7am!

We had a party at my Dad’s house although he is actually in Madeira! The Little Mister had lots of friends over, we set up a big train track and I had made some little cupcakes which the kids decorated. We finished off with lunch and pass the parcel.

I can’t believe that my little boy is going to be three on Monday. Time has just flown by. He is such fun these days. He can be quite hard work at times but he is fun and smiley and loves jumping and running. He loves his little sister and his pussycats and nothing gladdens my hear more than seeing him and his Daddy snuggled up together in bed.

We are blessed so much and I am grateful for him and all that he teaches us. Life would certainly be less entertaining without him here! Love you Little Mister xxxx
