DD is thirteen!

My lovely daughter turned thirteen yesterday. I am slightly in shock at how fast the time has gone. My happy little girl in pigtails is turning into a beautiful, intelligent and creative young woman. It's the bit in the middle that worries me!

Today she decorated her birthday cake, as she has some friends coming to watch a DVD and eat pizza tomorrow. I hope they leave some for me!


  1. What a fab cake! I am storing that away as inspiration for my elder DD who will be 17 in August, as she loves owls. It is lovely to see our girls growing up, but like you, I am a little apprehensive about it all. My younger one will be 14 in August, and it all seems too quick! We have started the university open days for the elder one, and we are off to Lincoln for a look around in June...

    1. That does seem very scary! I can't quite imagine being at that stage, but of course it will come. I have to keep reminding myself to make the most of each day that I have with my kids, but I'm not very good at it. It's a shame we can't slow time down a little!


Thank you for your comment - I am always happy to hear from you!
