My gorgeous girl is 19 today...She had the day off work, and by a happy serendipity I have no preaching committments tomorrow (another training day) so we've been shopping, shopping, SHOPPING!
She now has a lurvely new hat, a gift from her brother (L takes after her mother in being a hat-o-holic), 2 pairs of shoes
(1 from the Sally Army shop, where I also ran mildly amock in the book department, snaffling 4 books I really did want to read for the massive sum of £1) a bag, a top and a beaming smile. We've also chosen the most eccentric meal for a long long time...mainly Chinese, majoring on crispy duck pancakes, but followed by chocolate caterpillar cake and marshmallows - oh, and chocolate soldier skittles, complete with chocolate ball with which to send them flying. Must go...it's party time!
