Happy 9th Birthday Son

J –

I cannot believe that nine years have passed since I first looked into your beautiful blue eyes. Neither for that matter can I believe that you are still in single figures, yet you are almost my height AND my shoe size!

These past nine years seem to have flown by and whilst we’ve had our moments, you never fail to impress or to surprise me. I couldn’t have wished for a more beautiful, loving, caring, compassionate, clever and incredible little man.


Happy Birthday to my beautiful boy.

All my love, cuddles and kisses

After making himself comfortable with a coffee on the couch Paul was then inundated with presents which the kids took great pleasure in helping him to open.…

Happy 2nd Blog Birthday To Me!

It doesn’t feel as if I’ve been blogging for two years but as of today this blog is officially two years old! I’ve had an amazing twenty-four months of blogging, I never really expected for my writing to amount to anything other than perhaps a couple of comments from family and friends.

Whilst my blog isn’t particularly popular in comparison with others online I try not to compare nor to take statistics or numbers to heart as popularity nor point scoring is the reason for which I blog. I blog simply because I enjoy writing, that and I feel that I have something to share from time to time which I hope others may find humorous or helpful.…
