Twinkle twinkle little star...

Little Miss had her 12th birthday yesterday.....we had such a lovely day and lots of fun.

DH and I once we decided to start a family did not give any thought to when the baby may be born, needless to say when it happened Little Miss was due to be born early January, but, as these things go sometimes, complications happen . When a doctor tells you the baby has to come early and tells you it will be the 23rd December you do not argue.  I have always said I was given my own Christmas Angel and I am sure she was not going to miss out on one more Christmas than she had to!    It was really strange knowing exactly when your baby is going to arrive and pretty much the hour.  We spent the first week of her life in hospital.  Lots of other baby's were being born , obviously other people with our planning skills too.!!! Christmas morning one of the consultants brought his rather large broad (made me laugh as he obviously was in the right line of work...babies) and they all with the nurses sang us a selection of carols...I thought that was a very kind thing to do.

Oh the years like yesterday have whizzed by.   Presents, phone calls, lots of cuddles, board games  was the theme of the day.  We took Little Miss to a restaurant overlooking the sea for lunch and as you do chatted  and laughed and just had a nice time.  It wasn,t busy in the restaurant and so Little Miss was very happy that it wasn't noisey.   We came home, and a little while later .....

I made her cake ,
of course somewhere it had to
be pink
so I used her favourites,
pink smarties 
kit kat chocolate
I got a huge hug for this
and the biggest smile.

Little Miss is my "little star"
She has been so brave
and is 
so kind and loving.
Her favourite nursery rhyme
was always 
"Twinkle twinkle little star"
she has brightened our life
no end...
She is our own little

Happy birthday darling

Well the tablecloth will be freshly 
re washed and ironed.
Hopefully the stroll to find 
the greenery and holly.
Platters washed ..
finding on the net exactly 
where Santa is
and following his journey.

Later magic reindeer food 
sprinkled on the drive
(additional little food for the birds)

his jobs 
cooking the gammon,
turkey stock,
sausage rolls
cheese straws
mince pies

feeling peckish just writing
about it.

More birthday cake in between


Of course I can!!!
(Years of practice!!)

If he doesn't 
there is going to be 
big trouble

(Of course)


Wherever you are ,
From our home to yours 
Have a wonderful Christmas
Happy New Year.
