How can three years have possibly elapsed between the first and last of today’s photographs?
As a birthday treat, we visited The Deep where we saw some amazing sea life. I think everyone’s favourites were the Gentoo penguins [very difficult to photograph though!]
We surprised Edith with all her presents when we returned home and afterwards there was obviously cake, candles and singing.
Just before bedtime, unprompted, Edith said to me “thank you Daddy, I’ve had a very happy birthday”, at which point I think I got something in my eye.
I look at the first and last photographs and see that I’m a little bit older, a little bit thinner, a little more tired and seeing as I subconsciously chose to wear the same shirt, I’m obviously a little bit poorer!
But the joy that the little members of my family bring to me, far outweigh a bit of sleep and and a new shirt!
