Twenty-five years ago today

I remember it was quite misty as we drove off in the early hours of the morning. When we got into town the market traders were setting up and the road was blocked by someone unloading a van. I thought that I was going to give birth there and then in the car!

A couple of hours later, a beautiful baby girl was born and I shed a few tears. I never thought that I would have the privilege of having my own daughter. Today is Dom’s quarter century. The first of many, I hope.

Happy birthday Dom!

Funny thing time… At times painfully slow and at others passing too quickly to comprehend…

One moment you are playing with your friend's and families' kids, trying to see how their young minds are working and suddenly they are out in the world, grown up and doing amazing things...

Exactly, Caroline; time is like an unpredictable elastic.

Ahhh Precious memories.

I too described it as a "privilege" having my own daughter :-)

Happy belated Birth day to you Anji x
