15 years ago today...

We lived in a different house.
I had a 2 1/2 year old toddler.
I had fish and chips for tea.
I read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire for pain relief.
And at 10.30pm this little scrawny baby was born.


He's a lot bigger and a lot hairier than he was then, but still cute.
And today we celebrated his birthday.

With a homemade card;


A homemade cake;


Plenty of presents (mostly computer based)


And an hour locked in a game room in Liverpool. It was really good fun. I need to blog about it, but that will have to wait until I have time.


And I could wax lyrical about how proud of him I am, because I am, or how loving he is when he still snuggles up for a kiss on the top of his head, although now he looms in and bends down for his kiss rather than stretching up for a hug, but I can imagine him  making vomiting noises, or rolling his eyes at me and saying things like "Mum, how could you let me down!" So I won't. I'll just repeat, quietly, that I love him dearly and I'm so pleased that he's my son.

  7. How civilised, fish and chips for tea and then giving birth a few hours later. Both of mine were born at dawn, Eleanor after a 37 hour labour, ouch! The birthday celebrations sound fun, I look forward to hearing more.

  8. Looks like a good birthday was had. I find boys are so loving, I know mine is always ready for a cuddle and a kiss. The escape room thing is on our list of things to do. Will be interested to see what you thought about it. Lovely family photo by the way. xx
