Dearest Raffie – You Are Six! Dearest Raffie, You are six years old and yet again I’m sat here in bewilderment that another year is passed. Six years ago you didn’t so much as burst into, but took your very long time, arriving into the world but that’s you all over. It took 11 months to find you were growing inside me, which was so unusual as with your big brother and sister it had been far quicker. The same […]
Dearest Jimmy – You Are Eleven Years Old! Dearest Jimmy, You are eleven years old! Eleven?! I say it every year with all of you but how has this happened so quickly.

Dearest Florence – You’re a Teenager Miss 13! Dearest Florence, You’re a teenager my little Miss 13 year old and like I say on all birthdays I’m just not sure how this can have happened so quickly. I mean, thirteen? A teenager! Bit much isn’t it, when I know that it was really only just 13 minutes ago you were born, not YEARS surely?! Honestly, when you were born Little Miss Florence Ladybird, it was like life suddenly became in […]
