Wow, I am still in shock. But I need to say some thank yous and post some pics.
Let me start with another then and now:
It's safe to say peeps came from far and wide for Isobel's birthday: My family came up from the Isle of Wight, so I guess that's pretty far; and then Jo and Houzla came from North London,; Clare and Vin from Reading; Linda and Sue from Eastish London and peeps from places in between, so I guess that's pretty wide.
Now, while presence is presents, Isobel got cool presents too. Books, puppets and puppets in books; pushchairs, phones and puzzles; bubbles and bath toys; clothes and hats; and a teepee from Mummy and Daddy. Thank you, thank you for all that. xx
I think I got the bestest present though. No, not just my little girl, or the opportunity to celebrate with family and friends, although those are pretty cool. PD made me a book, a hardback book of photos from his blog, a beautifully inscribed book, made with a whole lotta love. Thank you PD and thank you for the quote:
'Mother is the name for god in the lips and hearts of little children.' xxxx
