17

My beautiful second daughter celebrated her 17th birthday this week.
Our family is blessed to have such a sweet and loving sister and daughter.
  
This girl!  So funny, so loving, with a crazy sense of humour and a kind, thoughtful nature. An amazing and inspirational dancer, and devoted little sister. Not the most motivated when it comes to school work, driving lessons or deadlines, but with a smile that lights up her face and my life. Love this girl xx

Goodbye

I am finding it hard to write the words, to actually accept that she has gone. My dear mother-in-law, pictured  with her first great grandchild, only a few weeks ago, passed away peacefully on Sunday morning, surrounded by her loving family. Even knowing this day would soon come, it is never easy when the moment  arrives to say a final good bye. 


Gone — flitted away,
Taken the stars from the night and the sun
From the day!
Gone, and a cloud in my heart.
~Alfred Tennyson

Twenty

My first born turns 20 today. WOW!

It seems impossible to imagine that my funny, cheeky  little girl is now an independent young woman, ready to embark on her career in the travel industry with an exciting new job.
