Happy Birthday

dear Toby, Happy Birthday to you!

11 today and I'm sure he's grown even more in the night.

What a shame to go to school today - having said that, he did have a very embarrassing (but nice) incident this morning.

Whilst waiting for the school gate to open, the children normally stand and chat which is what Toby and all his friends were doing this morning.  There was a shriek behind me from a group of girls shouting Happy Birthday to him - one of the girls walked over and gave him a card and present.  Of course that provoked lots of hilarity from the group.  Poor old Toby (who is quite shy) went completely red, gave me the present and walked off down the path.........what a lovely thing to do though.

I can only imagine how embarrassed he was!  I'm sure in a few years time it'll all be different.

I'll leave you with a photo of our cherry tree which is full of beautiful marshmallow blossom.

Have a good day everyone.

Happy birthday to Toby. He must be a real lovely young fella to get a pressie from a young lady. Brave of the young lady too.
The blossom on the tree is beautiful. You must be sighing with relief to see some colour in your part of the world. Enjoy. Dark murky autumn days here after a dark, wet, wet summer. :( I suppose there is always next summer. Fingers crossed.

Happy Birthday Toby! Aww how sweet was that. Poor chap. Hope he has a lovely rest of the day.

I just love the blossom around at the moment. There is gorgeous tree near our school so pretty in pink. I would love to take a picture, but I think I might be considered a bit of a loon! lol.

You must live in a similar area to me. I recognise that style of house and the cherry blossom.

My daughter seems to have grown about a foot in the last week too. must be something to do with turning 11.

Ah, poor chap - my lads would sympathise with him Im sure! But hope he had a great day.

the blossom seems especially lovely this year doesnt it - a great payback after a harsh winter.

Cake looks yummy - is there any left?!

You have such a lovely blog. I adore the little flowers you added to the pillow in your banner! Nice touch! And I am totally jealous of your cherry tree. Spring has not yet sprung in Ohio yet.
