a happy birthday week

“With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.” – William Shakespeare
Mumma like Gollum
People always used to tell me I looked younger than I was. Until I had E! The massive amounts of stretching my skin did and sleepless nights have taken their toll on my youthful vigour. But like Mums who wear their stretch marks with pride I’ve learned to love the wrinkles that tell the story of my life as a parent.

Getting E to help apply an oatmeal facial scrub to be told ”Mumma looks like Gollum” might not be my best look but the laughter that comes from being around such a little comic is well worth any wrinkles and sag.

January me and mine {a birthday family portrait} how do you like your eggs in the morning?

    Just remember that some of the wrinkles and lines are because
    of the smiles and laughter. Mine are because of being the parent of three children.

      Couldn’t agree more. Lucky you having 3 times the smiles and laughter ;o)

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant 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)

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!
