Today is T's birthday and he is now 15 years old.
He was up at 6am this morning.
That never happens on a school day.
He was rushing around to leave on time 2 and a half hour later.
That usually happens on a school day.
Today is also S's birthday and she is now 10 years old.
Because she had an early start to the day too there was time to begin knitting a Monster High hat on the loom kit we gave her as one of her gifts.
Both children went off to school with those enormous badges pinned to their jumpers and big grins on their faces.
Tonight we are all out together. First up will be a couple of games bowling which will then be followed by a meal somewhere of their choosing. Knowing these two it'll feature pizza.
