Another birthday

Our eldest boy was 10 years old yesterday, I can't believe that. Always seems to have more impact when our second child hits a milestone, rather than the eldest, quite daft really! Anyway, I digress. He received mainly fishing 'stuff', so Daddy duely took him off to the beach to fish. Well, try to fish. Aedan remembers everything he's been taught by a friend who's taken him a few times, but the weather let him down. It was a lovely day, but a tad breezy for casting.

No fish for supper! (That didn't come out of the freezer, along with the chips...)

I made him a Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting for his birthday cake, at his request. It was lush and saddly, two of the children didn't like it. All the more for the rest of us, I say!

David has just gone for a little trip to the Med today. Hope it rains.

My Aunty Nora wrote me a lovely letter after she recieved my sympathy card. She has passed my contact details onto to two of my four cousins and I'm looking forward to finding out more about them. It's so sad that we've had to wait for this opportunity to get to know one another, but I'm quite curious.

Ooh - good luck with the cousins -that is exciting. I've really enjoyed meeting (very distant) cousins via e-mail and internet since researching our family tree. I'm kind of 'out there' now - muscled my way in to various family tree websites, so every now and then I get e-mails from people who share the same great, great, great, great grandmother as me!

Good luck with it - I hope you keep us posted.

And happy birthday to Aedan - double figures now!

And it's raining here. But then it would be - it's the Church Fair today and it always rains for the church fair. I'm lucky. Mario agreed to do my stint on the 2nd hand toy stall for me so I'm indoors and dry! And no you can't have him. He's mine!

Yes, I really am quite excited, I think one of my cousins is about my age, so it'll be interesting to see if we have similar or totally different lives!

David's pretty good, when he's around. I can usually con him into doing the stuff I hate, like bathing the children, painting 'smelly stuff' onto Conall's verruca, putting out the bins, popping to Forres for the essentials I've forgotten, you know the sort of thing. Mum never knows who to refer to as 'my favourite son-in-law', him and Ian are both lovely, (but Ian makes for a better tart!) it's always neck and neck.

Oh well, as the hb is away, I'd best get this Chilli on the road, 'cos noone else is going to be conned into doing it!
