Happy Birthday Nan

Autumn flowers in a jug

It is my dear Nan's birthday today - she's 88  but shhhh, she would go mad if she knew I'd told you! She's such a trendy, cool Nan who always makes me giggle. A great story teller and good fun to be around.

Little Bird is one of her 8 Great Grandchildren! This is them last year. On Monday we visited her for a few hours and it was lovely sat in her cosy sitting room laughing at awful television like Jeremy Kyle! My Nan loves it though, she likes the scandal and the drama of it all. Her house is immaculate and the garden is amazing, all looked after by herself. Nan is a determined lady and is always getting caught out doing things that she shouldn't really do like climbing ladders or spending hours pruning in the garden. We all tell her to take it easy but she has other ideas. It keeps her young at heart.

Happy Birthday Nan and thanks for having such a great influence on my life. We love you very much xxx

Doesn't she look lovely? So youthful. You are a very lucky lady and you obviously appreciate her. Bless the pair of you.

Those flowers are SO zingy, lovely!
