Enjoying, and with disbelief, that daughter celebrated her 17th birthday on Friday!
Daughter has a habit of never being at home for her birthday.
Her birthday usually falls during the autumn half term and sometimes we have been
away as a family but last year daughter was away on a school trip so we didn't
see her at all on her 16th birthday.
This year she was at a two-day football tournament in Cambridge. We eventually
caught up with her late afternoon on her birthday.
Next year she has vowed that she will spend all her 18th birthday with us, and
has already requested that brothers must be present too.
Enjoying Cambridge in all its autumnal glory.
We used to live here...I miss it.
Enjoying two football matches, daughter in action .... playing central
defence for a change and outrunning the forward!
Enjoying mid air antics to clear the ball - number 6!
Enjoying her cake belatedly. I had promised to bake her favourite birthday cake but
being away for two days scuppered these plans.
Enjoying the reflections on my new candle holder.
Enjoying more of those autumn views and late sun from the bedroom
windows as I vacuumed and dusted.
Enjoying all those nostalgic moments invoked by dusting my dressing table -
daughter has brought back these tins for me from her school trips, she knows my taste!
Enjoying the possibilities these little goodies promise - bought from
John Lewis in Cambridge. Definitely a rosy, Christmas theme going on!
Enjoy your weekend.
