Today it's my youngest niece Lucy's 9th birthday. Happy Birthday darling!! This is Lucy last year doing a spot of gardening.
I only managed a quick chat this morning as I woke up late and they were in the final stages of leaving for school and work and everyone knows what that's like!
I was told to leave it a bit later calling tonight as they are going to the pet shop after school to pick up a pair of rabbits. That is unless Lucy has exploded at the excitement of it being her birthday and getting her very first pet on the same day. Unless you count Gary the hamster as a pet. This is Gary..
I'd been sick for 3 weeks when Lucy was born, so I missed out an awful lot of her first 2 years of life and she was very wary of me when I started staying there after my ex and I split. We soon made up for lost time and very soon I was a regular at her beauty parlour!!
I'll leave you with the cards I made for her sent by Mum and Dad, Nan and myself.
