A very happy 16th birthday to our no.1.son!!
Although. I still can't believe he IS 16yrs (surely I'm only a little older than that myself? gulp! where DID the time go?) it only seems like yesterday that he was a "little boy" - now he's towering above us both at 6' and starting to make a break for independance! help!!!
No.2.son has baked him a cake - a Cider Cake - which he'd requested, and his uncles are coming round tonight and we're off for a celebratory meal in the evening. Next week he and two pals are off to see Snow Patrol also by way of celebration - how marvellous it is to have all "this" in front of you? Though I wouldn't particularly want to repeat it all again (especially some aspects!) I'm rather happy with all that I did do and I hope he manages to do all that HE wants too. Exciting times. (I think).
