Five Today

Five years ago today this wonderfully funny, feisty, female entered our lives and we love her dearly:

 X Marks the spot!  We are sat at the place of her birth, at that exact time 8:35am. She was not however born on top of an Amazon box!

  Yes, I am looking very tired, notice those bags or should I say suitcases under the eyes!!  This little one has been crawling into our bed most nights and since it is definitely not a three person bed, I have decamped to a cold bed in her room!

We have had a lovely day, a little friend from school came to play and have lunch.  Pip was really pleased with her Hello Kitty scooter from us and she had great fun with the marble run too. 

The tree is up, most of the presents are wrapped and the food shopping was sorted late last week.  With a bit of luck we'll make some mince pies tomorrow and hopefully attend the Christmas Eve 7pm service at church.


  1. Happy, happy birthday, Pip! You know, Flora still sleeps in our bed, at least most of her nights. She doesn't have her own bed because she is supposed to get Veronika's bed, but we haven't found a good bed for Veronika. But our bed is a queen-size bed, so there is plenty of room.

    You sound very organized, San. We still have to wrap all of our presents!! We have church at 4:00 p.m. and again at midnight. Last year, we all went to both Masses. I wonder if we will manage to do that this year. Flora has a stomach bug. So, we'll see.

    Love to all of you!

  2. Merry Christmas, San, and Happy Birthday to Pip! I always forget that you have a Christmas baby. So much for you to do at Holiday time! You're the best Mom. It sounds like she had a wonderful day and you're ready for a beautiful Christmas celebration. We managed to have cookies made just in the nick of time :) and also shared Christmas caroling together. It's cold here again, and we're bundling up. I hope you're having a peaceful and happy day. Love to all of you! (P.S. Greg mailed a package to you on Monday . . it'll be nice to see what day of Christmas it arrives on . . Thanks again for our lovely treats!)
