Well my little cherubs have surpassed themselves today! I was woken up at the crack of dawn with home made cards and pictures and lots and lots of cuddles. I am lucky. Then they put on a talent show for me while i was having my cup of tea.katlyn in true Barbie style flitted across the room on tiptoes spinning and dancing like an angel, while Johnny bounded in dribbling his football and headering it to new heights, as it bounced off the chandelier bringing down droplets of crystals. Tea now running down my chin while I tried to regain composure. After the show, they both read me their school story books. Very good considering they are both only Five. Not twins but eleven months between them. Johnny was five yesterday and Katelyn will be six early December. So the day commenced with sheer contentment. Having brought them up single handed for the last three years l feel a wave of pride. l am not taking anything away from their own lovely little personalities, but I am pleased anyhow.
We spent a wonderful day in the unexpected sunshine at the childrens playground armed with fishcakes and chips from the local chippy.
I was wished a happy birthday by virtually, every passing stranger, as the children delighted in telling everyone that l was sixty-two today!
After spending the afternoon delivering handouts for our psychic open day, we wearily strolled home along the sunny lanes.
At home, l was treated to a party, prepared by the imaginative two, who busied themselves sticking gummed stars on the windows, doors, door handles and floors. How delighted I was to see the result of their hard work. And all for me!
Finally after an amazing tea, of Johnny’s left over birthday cake and cheese sandwiches carefully made by creative little hands, l was entered into a game of draughts.
They finally slid into bed tired and contented, while I am still wide-eyed and far too excited to sleep …………………………………………..
Who could ask for more?
My beautiful thoughtful little charges made my day!
