This cute little roly poly pudding is a big 8 years old today!!
After the horrors of newbornbabyhood he became a cuddly cheerful little man. He's still lovely although, at times, a challenge! He still let's me kiss him goodbye at the school gates and likes nothing better than a cuddle.
His Granny loved him so much - he was her only grandson among her 5 beautiful grandchildren. She understood him better than anyone and I miss her advice every day.
He cut his first teeth at five months and walked unaided at 10 months. His feet were so big he had to miss the Clarks' Crawlers stage and go straight into 'big boy's' shoes - a size five and a half!! He became a big brother at 16 1/2 months and as far as he's concerned the Minx has always been here. Know how he feels on that one!!!
Grandma and Grandpa are on their way. We haven't seen them for over 2 months as they've been in Oz seeing B-I-L. Monster's best buddy in the whole world is also coming to tea tonight.
Table's laid. Cake's decorated according to Monster's instructions. All those lovely (unhealthy) colours I have and he chose white!!
Quick bolognese to bung together. Take at least two more lots of painkillers. We're there!!
Ready to party :)
Due to another morning spent in the dental hygienist's chair having ultra deep descaling on the whole of the right hand side of my mouth I am in a slightly distracted state. The local anaesthetic has worn off. It hurts. Like mad.
Therefore, I am going to toddle off now and drink some Calpol as we've run out of grown-up painkillers. I shall save my musical loveliness for tomorrow to be on the safe side or I might link to something dreadful!!
