Teen in the house! Lily’s birthday

The teens are here. Very weird how it all passes so fast – it never ceases to be weird. Lily… the little baby who slept for hours on end in a pram, got carted up mountains and on countless runs in a 3 wheeler jogger is now a huge giraffe-like girl who does the jogging herself. She even tidies her room and yet it seems just weeks since she was that baby.

Lucky Lily had her birthday fall on a weekend, and we took a trip with Lily’s friends Lucy and Ashlea to the all-new Grip n Go adrenaline climbing wall in Haslingden.  Opened very recently, I was pinching myself at having a facility like this a little over a mile from our house. Great to see them all having such a laugh and coming home with aching forearms.

We had a mini very informal gathering of friends with Holly, Matthew, Simon, Sally and Jean and made the most of the ace weather with a load of outdoor rumpus.
