Another Birthday

Birthday dinner with Derek and friends

17 years ago I started my journey into motherhood, where has the time gone? It seems like a 100 years ago and yesterday all in the same moment! Derek Weston..how sweet it is to think of the darling baby he used to be, but after 17 years, things haven't changed a whole lot..to me it's still easy to see that endearing newborn that had my heart so deeply in love that I thought I'd never come down from cloud 9. Through a mop of hair, a few struggling whiskers and a much deeper voice, I now look up to him when he speaks and can in an instant be moved back into the clouds with pride of the boy he once was and the fine man he has become. Happy Birthday Derek! 




Because everything in my life is often done in a hurry, the candles were quickly inserted
into a cake that was too warm..the unveiling wasn't too surprising but did make us all smile :-)
