BOY!! HOW TIME LITERALLY FLIES..LOOK WHAT I FOUND!!




Hello ladies...hope you are all having a fabulous productive week??

Well today is my eldest son's 23rd birthday...AND quite by accident whilst searching through boxes & stuff....(with the BIG clean out continuing).

I found this BIG THICK HARDCOVOURED book that i used to write in...& MR B would try to copy....re learning the alphabet....numbers etc...

It started when he was in prep at age 5.......& going through a few years when HE LOVED the X FILES show...
& signed his brother up to a "contract" to star in HIS movie version of the same!!

WELL....how funny is that...?? as MR B is now about to graduate with his law degree..
& maybe specialising in contract/media law...

SOO he has gone from hardly able to read/write....(as a little preppie)....

TO becoming a fully fledged lawyer...hopefully eventually working in a TOKYO LAW office speaking his japanese...

also... Dont you just love childrens naive drawings...are they NOT the BEST???

thats ME in the pink dress???!!! never wear PINK...but what the hec??

anyway...enough ramblings from a proud OLD mum...

ps....my dad sounds better today...hopefully going to the rehab section to work on his new knee...

anyway........~~~~~~~~

HAPPY 23rd birthday gorgeous MAN!!!

xx mum & dad.. your brother!!! & sooty!!
