Happy birthday William!
William is 11 today!
We have just done the party. All the mess is cleaned away. Peace descends- apart from Emily playing some dreadful dancing game on Wii in the next room. After a long day (much of it in a small room with the suits trying to decide what services to cut) I am ready for some peace.
But Will had a great time so it is all good. This year he had a ‘Detective Party’ with fancy dress and games like ‘pin the magnifying glass on the detective’.
And as ever- when kids are happy, parents have a special feeling somewhere deep inside. I think it is related to love.
