"Although I speak from my own experience, I feel that no one has the right to impose his or her beliefs on another person. I will not propose to you that my way is best. The decision is up to you. If you find some point which may be suitable for you, then you can carry out experiments for yourself. If you find that it is off no use, then you can discard it." Dalai Lama...

A grown up Birthday meal !

 Over the last few weeks we have had numerous get togethers and sleepovers to celebrate Milly's birthday.It was impossible to get her friends in one room at the same time so we had them individually :-)
For her actual Birthday night we had settled on a family meal of Steak and chips - chosen by Emily.

I set the table with hearts and star sprinkles ( ok, there are a few snowflakes mixed in, from the time Milly decided all the table confetti would look good mixed on the table! )

For a girl that LOVES chocolate, a large box to share...

Carrying on the Thornton's theme, Emily's favourite cake,Thornton's toffee cake...

A little more sparkliness:-)


Sirloin steak and chips went down very well.We then lit the candles on the cake and I realised I had forgotten my camera .I failed to take a pic of her blowing out the candles - she was not up for a retake as the cake was within her reach and she was not letting anything hold up the moment...

As we watched her laughing and talking, Alan and I both got very emotional.We talked with her about the night she was born, neither of us can believe how time has flown. She makes us laugh, she makes us cry, we worry,we soar with happiness, it is a roller coaster ride, but oh so worth it. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful, unique girl to share our lives with.She makes us happy just by 'being'.

We had planned to have a game after the meal and Milly had chosen Anatomix.

However during the meal a plan was hatched by Milly to go for a walk in the dark.So off we went.It was a beautiful still evening and we had such fun, Milly was on top form and had us laughing and giggling.She then told us a story - well a walk wouldn't be complete without one :-).

Back home to watch The Social Network .
Happy Birthday gorgeous girl...
