She seems to be taller every time I see her. She has a missing top front tooth and the other is loose – ‘hanging by a thread’, we used to say rather horribly when I was little and a loosening lower tooth too. Her hair is blonde and very wavy, she loves school, writing, drawing and making things and she is kind and motherly with other children, confident but fairly quiet with adults. She’s just had the stabilisers taken off her bike and is very pleased about that, but her newest love is her scooter. Today, my lovely little girl is six.
Our good friend Jamie called round with his nephew, Richard, who is going to do preparatory work on our drive. It’s 100 yards, or possibly metres – I haven’t measured – long and needs resurfacing, but we want to widen it too, so Richard is going to get it ready for Alan, who will do the top-surfacing. Jamie had other news of interest, which would be excellent for us, but I’ll tell you if it happens.
The birthday season has started – Al and Weeza’s are next and then Wink’s, all in April. Zerlina approves of birthdays, as you know her bear, Barry has regular Happy Days, when he is sung to. She didn’t join in the singing today, but watched us all and beat time with her right band.
The other news is that our latest catalogue is up on the website, I think there’s a link on the sidebar. Less than three weeks to go now.
