As we approach another birthday for little K, I realise that I didn’t blog much about her actual birthday celebrations last year.  I didn’t post anything about this birthday bunting I made, now in its second year.  The first half says “Happy’.  The butterflies were pinned on specially for K.IMG_5653

On K’s actual birthday we had fun just us on the edge of Tentsmuir forest where we ate a picnic lunch, dug in the sand and blew bubbles over the mud then came home for tea and cake.

Later in the week, five little girls came round and decorated biscuits with sweets while the mummies ate a rather delicious sponge cake filled with cream and strawberries.  I was too busy supervising that to take any pictures.

Now I am planning K’s third birthday.  There will be a party; there will be butterflies, fairies and plenty of pink; there will be family: two uncles, two aunts, one granny, one grandpa and one great-grandmother.  Its going to be a birthday to remember.

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
