Recently ‘A’ reached the wonderful age of 16. Either of us are exactly sure why it’s supposedly so special but there you go! We had Baked Spinach Gnocchi for tea and a Boiled Fruit Cake for dessert. A few days later we had planned to drive into the city to watch the Play of the Passion but the lines of communication were having interference and I forgot to tell John where it was so we hadn’t allowed enough time to get there and find a parking place…so we ended up at Sizzler instead!

This was ‘A’s first week of a back-to-normal work/lesson routine. She has dropped down to only 2 days per week of work and then rest of the week is devoted to lessons and softball.

So while it’s a little belated I will still write, as I have for the other children:

HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!!!!!!
