Happy Birthday

On this day, exactly twenty years ago, a little kiwi girl was born, my daughter. She grew up to be an independent, beautiful, kind young woman. Happy Birthday Darling! Have a super day!


  1. Happy Birthday, youngster!

  2. Your very lucky (independent, beautiful and kind young daughter) has followed in the footsteps of her Mum.

  3. ...And of course, it was your "birth day" too so congratulations for mothering her for a full twenty years.

  4. Violet, nice to see you. Must pop over and check up on what you've been up to!

    GB, oh fiddle dee dee :o)

    YP. Thank you! It was a quick and easy delivery!

  5. You may fiddle dee dee me (why does dee need two es and me only one?) and there was a bit of flippancy in the actual wording but the sentiment is genuine and, I think, accurate :)
