Hello dear friends, thank you for your very much appreciated good wishes for my back. they worked a treat and I am back to normal - thank goodness! This week I was hit by a chest infection which I have mostly recovered from, it has though caught Tony (no it shouldn't be the other way around) and he is suffering much more with it than I did, temperature, wracking cough, streaming nose struggling to breathe, etc. Moving swiftly on to much nicer things it is Em's birthday this week and I cannot believe how fast the years have flown by. Em was only a few days old when this first photo was taken -she was so tiny. My next photo is of Em four years old on a rocker with her favourite bear Eddy Teddy at Pecorama, Beer, Devon during an Easter break. Em at 9 years of age dressed up as an evacuee for a history lesson on WW2 at Primary school. She loves all sorts of animals but she's always had a love/fascination of snakes so when we found a fountain with a most enormous snake in Copenhagen she was determined to have her photo taken with it. A year later we visited Malmo and she spotted some bronze cats for a photo opportunity although the real cats are even better for a cuddle. She loves sheep and has her very own flock of cuddly sheep in her room! She draws beautiful accurate detailed pictures and loves manga stories. She has been a Brownie and a Guide and had lots of fun during her meetings and camps. Happy 14th Birthday Em, love from Mum, Dad, Ali, Granny & Grandad.
