Happy Birthday Millie!

11 July 2017

It’s hard to believe that Millie is fourteen-years-old today! It seems like only yesterday when Gill and I were heading off to the hospital, and then the nurse announcing, “it’s a girl!”, and me bursting into tears when I saw her little nose that looked exactly like mine! What a day that was! Millie is off on her Duke of Edinburgh walk and returns home this afternoon for birthday celebrations with her grandparents.

What a great few days of sport as Wimbledon is my favourite sporting event of the year. It’s hard to beat two-weeks of sporting drama from early-afternoon until 9 o’clock and I’ve thoroughly enjoy watching Konta’s matches along with the absolutely sublime Roger Federer, who seems to be still improving as he approaches his 36 birthday. And what a finally set with Muller and Nadal last night! The final set was as long as many matches and it was high-tension all the way through. Brilliant! I’ve also been playing golf with my nephew Wils and lots with Millie and we have another Mixed Comp coming up this weekend which unfortunately will make it impossible to watch the Men’s Final, but it’s always better to be a player than a spectator, especially if you’re playing with your daughter. Gill and her Mum Liz are going to the Men’s Final and fingers crossed that they’ll see Roger play! I also managed to see the last test of the Lion’s tour at the golf club and what a fantastic final match that was that sent everyone home happy except the Kiwi’s!

I’ve posted a couple of photos of Katie on her trampoline, Millie on her way to her D of E walk and one of the girls before leaving to the theatre in London.

Katie’s off to gym club tonight before Millie’s birthday paella! Stay tuned!

PS And Happy Birthday to Ray on Bastille Day!
