Happy birthday to me

Sophie's first birthday

Today was Sophie’s birthday. After present-opening we headed for the beach where Soph feasted on sand, Jo dug pools and Mum and Dad tried some resting.

Josie is very excited that we can go to the beach a lot. When Granny Gill rang to wish Sophie happy birthday she told her all about it. It took her a few days to establish that we were staying here for a while – on day one she refused to leave the beach because she thought we were going home. Now the house in Abersoch is “our shower house” (on account of it not having a bath), as distinct from “our house”. She’s happy as a pig in mud.

Birhday cake and ice creams and a long walk rounded off a great birthday. We’ve borrowed a second baby carrier to carry Soph in and she absolutely loves it.

We finished the day with an ill-fated attempt to get the kids to sleep in the tent. Far too exciting for sleep evidently. Still, I can attest to the fact that one’s body will effectively strip the alcohol from most-of-a-bottle of champagne such that peeing on a fire to put it out in the dead of night does not lead to general conflagration.

Birthday pics to follow when an agonisingly slow upload is complete …
