I can remember turning 13 like it was yesterday! That feeling of being grown up, all these options in front of you and yet not knowing why its so scary at the same time too. The thought of all those years stretching out ahead until youre ancient (well at least 21!!) Everyone seems either way older (again anyone over 21) or way younger (no im not playing with my baby sis shes 2 YEARS YOUNGER!) Oooh happy times........before mortgage, bills and worry about my own kids!
You may be wondering why im pondering the past?
Well, today i officially became a mum of a teenager!! Where the heck have the last 13 years gone, it seems like only yesterday i was a frightened 21 year old not knowing what the heck to do with this screaming little thing that looked up at me with all the love in the world! Not knowing i was sobbing on the inside about how could i raise a child when i didnt know which end was which! We must have done something right as he is a really great kid, remembers his pleases and thankyous, will help me with his brothers and would help anyone who needed it. To say im proud of him is an understatement - Happy Birthday Ben :)
Ok, after the mushfest i will now show you the first crochet square i have done.............promise not to laugh...........you promised remember!! I need to practice more but boy is it addictive! I kinda got to grips with it a little easier than i thought i would which is a bonus but i know there is still a way to go before im in the realms of blanketdom! ;)
