D is for …

… daughter.  One and only {wink}.

On my mum and dad’s wedding day in 1968 I doubt I was even the suggestion of a twinkle in their eye.  Or maybe I was.  Afterall as my niece Kim once put it
‘Before I was in my mummy’s tummy I was in my daddy’s eye’.

30 years later when G and I got married I became a daughter-in-law and gained a new family.  Contrary to all the terrible in-law jokes G and I are lucky enough to get on well with each others parents.  Except when my Father-in-law, the cheeky chappy, sneaks in a tickle when you least expect it.

    I’ve got got inlaws too – makes a big difference, doesn’t it! Mind you, FIL doesn’t tickle me…

    What a great juxtaposition of pictures, I keep popping back to look at them and realise I didn’t say it was me! Love them both 🙂

    My Dad is the person who’s had a massive positive influence on me as a male role model (and you’ve even posted up a pic for me).

    Oh Dear, Sorry to come to this so late, unfortunately Real Life has been intruding somewhat lately, and unfortunately not for good stuff. I am catching up now, and enjoying reading through all of these.

    My D is for Drinks – I am having a go at brewing this year, and have made elderflower cordial, elderflower champagne, and some nice beer. I currently have some blackberry wine on the go, and will be trying various others this year too. My Dad also approves of the D for this year, as it appeals to the womble in him.

Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)
#motherhood #70thbirthdaygift Roadies.  When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
#drseussparty #greeneggsandham #drseussfans Saturday morning Lego session.  All his own work, not bad for a 1 year old!
#welovelego #unpluggedchildhood #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog November 2011 on an unbelievably sunny day, with an allotment flourishing with green manure plants and an enormous 7 month bump.  As you can imagine I didn't get much gardening done that day!  Seems crazy how quickly the years have gone, our bump will be 6 next week!
