Saturday... so what?

Saturday again. 2 weeks from now we'll be on hols - yippee!

Vin will be celebrating his 15th birthday... no way can my boy be that big. Oh, I know he's a lump, getting tall, growing up... but 15? Where did the time go? I remember the day he was born - course I do - there was only me and him there. Yep. Just me and my boy... all alone on the bedroom floor. And after 3 girls, it was certainly a surprise to see that this tiny new born baby in my arms was a boy. Unbelievable in fact, just like the whole thing. Giving birth alone, getting this boy... The midwife had been in twice and left me. She said I wasn't in advanced labour... oh no? Think I don't know with my fourth baby??

huh! Showed her didn't we?

Anyway. Obviously we both survived, and I made no complaint. I was just happy to have it all over with, and get on with mothering my baby.

And now here he is - a fine young man, almost grown up. And still the light of my life, even though he drives me insane being the teenager he is.... Kids! One minute they're asleep on your shoulder - the next they're taller than you, and walking out the door.

My mojoholder this week features our adorable lil Matilda. This girlie is SO cute and pretty! She has beautiful eyes, with the longest laffs... a cute lil grin, and ... dimples!!! I just LOVE dimples!

Have a great day all

Great story about Vin's birth. They grow so fast it is quite scarey. Our office postman, Jack used to be a pupil at the school I used to clean 14 years ago & now he is 25!!
Love the layout. She really is as cute as a button.
