Happy Birthday Star!

Yesterday was Star's ninth birthday. Strangely I have already been thinking of her as nine for a month or so and kept telling people her age wrongly for some inexplicable reason. Whatever ... now she is officially nine.

She celebrated with a trip up a climbing tower with two of her friends followed by a meal at Frankie and Benny's. They looked the strangest threesome. A-next-door is very blond and is head and shoulders taller than Star and her other friend F, who are both dark. They looked for all the world like an elf and two hobbits. I tried to capture this in a photo, but didn't manage it - probably because they none of them stayed still for long enough. As all three are equally eccentric characters it was more Muddle Earth than Middle Earth, but they had fun (and I stayed sane. Just.)

Happy Birthday, Star. Hope you had a wonderful day.

And, Kathryn, I LOVE your new template. Lovely!

Ha! I can just picture it!

My 13 yo son is gowing alarmingly large feet and quite hairy legs, so he is strongly resembling a hobbit at the moment!

Perhaps after this growth spurt, he'll look a bit more normal! {g}
