It's been 18 years since this wonderful young man announced he was ready to enter the world....
...and what an entrance it was! I won't go into the details but he fought to be born at 31 weeks, and over the following 6 weeks the doctors did all they could to stop him, but he still managed to make an entrance 3 weeks early. That's my boy! Not scared of life, just ready to get on with living it! :-)
Happy Birthday, Sam!!! We love you so much!!
His birthday breakfast was a bit of an invention (his own idea!) - Raspberry & Malteser muffins...
...great idea, they were YUM!
Blossom squeezed us into a photo...
...before she had to leave for work.
Sam had the day off work so he spent most of his time with Mr E, who also arranged to be home for our boy's 18th. They did some shopping, played some games, and generally 'hung out together'. It was great for them. :-)
Tonight Blossom has taken Sam to the movies, and we parents are left to marvel at how blessed we've been to raise such a loving and obedient young man.
The downside of today was waking with my fifth migraine in 10 days. I went back to bed mid-morning after taking my 'big' pills, then slept till mid-afternoon. The pain began to ease off so I settled down to finish the rest of my Flower Fairies. All four are almost complete now and ready to make their homes with friends as Christmas gifts...
...I just need to add trim above the scallop edging.
A present arrived for me the other day from Robyn. She sent me some doilies! I love doilies, especially making them into something new and useful. I wonder what I'll be doing with these?? Thanks so much Robyn!
