Birthday girl


Happy Birthday to my little girl, Kristine.  It is so nice to have her nearby now - close enough to meet up for birthday lunch (and cake, of course) and a wander around town among the showers.


Yes - very nice indeed. :)

Just so you all know - Kristine has moved up for a year to study at the UHI campus in Stornoway.  She is living in a house-share in the big town -  about a half hour drive away from us. Happy, happy happy me:)

  2. Happy, Happy Birthday Kristine!
    Did she put a coca-cola red rinse on her hair? Love it! I did that shortly after I moved here and I had such fun with it! She is just so lovely!
    It's almost like a hobbit birthday..where it is her birthday but you got a present (of her moving to so nearby!!).
    What is she studying (called a "major" over here)?
    Glad you had such a lovely time!

  3. Megg - I think it was originally purple, but it has faded -lol. She is doing what is call an access to university course - she wants to study English Lit, but this year will study English, Maths, Sociology and Politics - so lots of degree options.
    Claire - thank you - she is looking so happy and enjoying her house sharing. xxx

  14. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Kristine lol.
    Do you feel like you have 2 different families? Sometimes I do, the big-uns and the littlie. Christopher was here last week (my eldest - he is 22) and when I was talking to Oscar and said, 'who's mama's boy?' Christopher grinned and said 'Me'. Oscar looked totally confused, because I said yes Christopher was Mama's boy too. I like having my 3 here together, it doesn't happen often. Oscar knows Christopher is his 'brother' but I wonder if its just a word to him (at his age of 2 1/2). Although in saying that, when Oscar was much smaller Christopher could show up after weeks and Oscar would let him pick him up, he didnt do that with other people. Do you find its the same for you? I was wondering if having my first 2 with my first husband and Oscar with Duncan makes any difference, or if its simply down to the age gap.
