Still a tiny speck of a girl full of hope and possibility and yet with so many things preventing her from becoming the peer group level of acceptance.
What these jerky kids don't see is the huge heart she carries around on her shoulders everyday - people are blind judges of character, that's what they are.
So Wednesday is her sleep in day as she doesn't do PE. How cool was it that it landed on her birthday? I gave her the birthday crap breakfast - a chocolate pudding and a chocolate bar (with her milk and food supplement and don't fret - she had a healthy lunch!) She was in heaven. She got a wad load of cash and gifts for her birthday.....her little face was a picture but obv not a photo because her eyes were shut on every photo!
We went to the opticians after school. I tell you what, it pays to go to private opticians. They give you so much care and attention. The optician suggested Ellie have a colour dyslexia test and from what she was saying, I gathered it might just be a really good idea. Unfortch we have to pay out big wads for it but I think she is on to something with Ellie. She is so patient with her and suggested lots of cool styles for her little nose and eyes. Ellie chose the most amazing pair of glasses, totally rad and "out there". They make her look so grown up - I was surprised! I can't wait to share them with you when they come back next week.
For tea we went out with nanny, pops and our gang to Frankie and Benny's. Her birthdays are just not a birthday without a trip to her fave place of celebration. Then we came home for coffee and cake (hhhhmmmm, cake) and a quick wizz on the Wii.
Simple pleasures (coffee and choc cake made by nanna)
Me, in 3 years time :(
The night was rounded off with a DVD in the dark (so it felt like the cinema) and that, my friends, is how my girl loved her birthday. She didn't ask for much neither, not bad when she has only requested £10 and a box of maltesers for Christmas. Now how many 14 year olds do you know that wants such pitiful things?!!!
I say, marks hands are as steady as a rock........not much
Happy Birthday my darling girl........ and although I worry about how dinky doo and tiny and fragile and innocent you are, Im going to hang on to that for as long as you let me.
