Meaghan's 15th Birthday

I know I mostly say that time is flying but it really has felt like Meaghan has been 15 for an age - certainly older than 14 anyway.

So she had her birthday yesterday, I have been so far behind this month that I nearly missed it by a day (thank you radio station for reminding me of the date the day before, phew - somehow I had it in my head that her birthday was on Wednesday - doh). Anyway a quick shopping trip to purchase an i touch and we were all set.

A nice early start and she was rapt in her present. Off she went to school (after already being flooded with texts and facebook messages), and afternoon at the shop with friends and then soccer presentation with more friends later that evening. Perfect day for a 15yo!


I am so pleased with the way she is growing up - her friends get frustrated with her because she refuses to be bitchy about anyone - amazing for a teenager. If she would stop stirring up her brother (and maybe put a bit more effort in at school..) then all would be perfect. But perfection can be a pain so she is fine the way she is. x


And as a bonus for her birthday, the teams hoodies arrived (with one for the coach as a thank you. He was so pleased as he is leaving to join the army - everyone is devastated..) and she received the coaches award for her team. So proud of her.

And one last Twinery goodie (a direct copy from one of their design team members - polka dot prints gorgeous..) . Very simple and cute. Just need some water balloons and clag/paste and twine of course. I think the round ones look more effective than the egg shaped ones, but Meaghan liked them so that's all that matters.

off to clean up my mess now, bye xx
