Occasionally, over the last few weeks I have found myself gazing in wonder at my oh-so-grown-up daughter's legs. When did they turn into these long, evenly tanned things? Perhaps it is because she is spending lots of time at the beach with her friends. I don't know, but she tells me they are not tanned compared to her friends; but I know they really are compared to me!
Yesterday, it was her 15th birthday. Anth took the day off and we all went to the cinema and later had takeaway pizza and a DVD. I wanted to have a 'vintage picnic afternoon tea', with gorgeous china and cake stands, but that idea was quickly shot down with cries of protest and rolling eyes. Hmm, I have no idea why but I'm still the official holder of the 'Saddest Mother' award...
She did agree to one vintage cake stand photo, which looks remarkably like last years birthday, but never mind.
Happy Birthday, darling Lucy - and may those beautiful legs carry you towards a wonderful year ahead..
