I’ve had the most wonderful birthday today! My family is my greatest blessing!

Above are photos of our beautiful Wisteria creeper in bloom all along the side of our house and up and around our telephone pole. Spring is just breathtaking, don’t you think?

Have a marvellous day xx






Jenna is 16 years old today!

We all got up really early this morning to give Jen her gifts, make her a special breakfast and then take her to scouts to write her oars charge exam. I know… “An exam?” you say, “on her birthday?” The thing is, she has been looking forward to achieving this advancement for ages and the date was set for the 9th of June, her birthday. She really doesn’t mind though, she was so excited to join the other sea scouts who will also be doing their practical and written exams today. (I did try and talk her out of it a few weeks ago but then she explained how important it was to her and this made me feel very proud of her dedication).

Erin baked her the most wonderful birthday cake, I’m sure Jen will love it when she sees it tonight.

It’s difficult to fathom how quickly time has passed, 16 years ago you were so tiny and now you have grown into a beautiful and confident young woman. We love you Jen and are so blessed to know you. xxx

Early morning birthday photos…

I still remember Erin’s birth-day, it was a Thursday morning. I went into labour and Richard and I made our way to my midwife’s home around the corner. We spent most of the morning just relaxing and walking, by midday the contractions kicked in fully. By 2:15 we had a new baby girl in our arms, what an amazing day that was, so beautiful. How could it be 14 years later already? She is so grown up now but still loves the birthday traditions we have always followed since she was little. We say a birthday verse the night before a birthday and prepare a special birthday table… This morning Richard made a wonderful breakfast and then Erin and I baked her birthday cake together.

These are such special moments to treasure. I know these moments are fleeting as time goes by so fast and therefore, I am making a concerted effort, to try and be present in each of these moments, so that I don’t miss anything and will be able to look back with joy and happiness on our life once our children are all grown…

Happy Birthday beautiful girl we love you!
