It's currently 2:11am & I'm sitting (very uncomfortably) on the floor of Miss L-R's bedroom. She woke up needing a drink but then saw a fly, she hates flies with a passion. Therefore I am sitting with her till she falls back to sleep. I am tired :-(

Today is Miss M's 10th birthday. I'm not sure how this has happened as I swear it was only 5 mins ago she was born!! 10 seems far to grown up for my liking but she is so excited. We had some Mummy-Daughter time this evening where I did her hair & painted her nails as its a special occasion. She chose a lilac/pink colour with a slick of glitter on top!! I'm really proud of the kind, clever & beautiful girl she is. Don't get me wrong, she's not perfect but to me she is perfectly imperfect. I've been thinking a lot about the person I was 10 years ago & how much becoming a Mum has changed me, to be honest I don't recognise that person, she seems like a stranger. I guess while I was busy raising her & her sisters, I didn't notice how much I changed, my priorities changed, my views on the world changed.

Wow, it's far too late to be getting all deep like that lol!!

So instead let me bore you with my day. Don't seem to have achieved much even though I was so busy!! Cooking, cleaning, popping to the shops, baking, making, looking after little ones........ok maybe I achieved more than I realised :-)

I did attempt some tissue paper Pom poms for Miss M's birthday. I've wanted to try them for ages & figured that they can hang in her room afterwards. They were easier than I thought however should you wish to recreate some of the beauties I've seen on the web you need to take your time!! So that's today's photo!!

& Miss L-R is still awake!!!!!!!
