Happy Birthday Mum!

Wishing you a magic 61st Birthday!

Thanking you for years of dedication, patience, understanding and inspiration. More recently, thank you so much for traversing the world to be with me when I’ve needed you most… on the arrival of your beautiful grand-daughters. Their love for you grows more by the day. They love you so much, as do Dan and I. Every moment you connect with them leaves a beautiful impression on their growing spirits. Your love, imagination and beautifully creative, caring personality shines a light on everyone you meet. I am so very proud that you are my Mummy. Thank you, and may good health and many, many happy years grace your beautiful being!

A trip down memory lane…

Six week’s after Charlotte’s arrival you were here with Dad to help us into the then unknown: parenthood! We had such an incredible holiday in the Marlborough Sounds and Nelson with you:

Thank you for braving the journey to New Zealand on your own to be with us for Sophie’s tender first weeks (even though you did break your little finger enroute and couldn’t help with the ironing – all was quickly forgiven – your company was what I needed more than anything!):

You are THE BEST!
