Monthly Archives: August 2013

When I was one,
I had just begun.

When I was two,
I was nearly new.

When I was three,
I was hardly me.

When I was four,
I was not much more.

When I was five,
I was just alive.

But now I am six,
I’m as clever as clever.
So I think I’ll be six
now for ever and ever.

August Bank Holiday means one thing in this family – the firstborn’s birthday. Rather selfishly, he hasn’t given any thought to my blog and has decided on an outing with friends, followed by a Happy Meal. How can I put that on Pinterest? He’s been looking forward to his birthday since Boxing Day and I’m really looking forward to make a big fuss of him, I’ve got a canister of helium and half a dozen blown out eggs waiting to be stuffed with tissue paper (don’t ask…). I can’t believe he’s going to be SIX this weekend! We’re almost in big kid territory.

I decided that I would start a weekly photo project of this year, starting with his birthday on Sunday and will do the same with Sunshine when her birthday rolls around. I’m excited to see what this year brings for him. My beautiful boy.


This little one is my Goddaughter so is more or less one of mine. The night she was born I was at a fancy dress party dressed as Tinkerbell, so I joked that surely that meant I had Fairy Godmother powers now! Yeah, my friend didn’t laugh either. Nor the other 3 times I made that joke…

She was christened on Sunday and was a vision of floral loveliness! We love you so much, Tigerlily! Welcome to the family x
