My baby is 18.....


....Yes it's official I'm getting old, as my baby turned 18 last month, I just don't know where have the years gone....

We didn't know what to get him for a present, presents are so much easier for girls, for our daughter she had a silver watch for her 18th and a white gold diamond necklace and matching earrings for her 21st....but what can you buy a handson young lad who has everything he could ever want, including a wooden tie, lol.....

Here is the card I made him.....


(I'm sure the mums with younger children will recognize Mr Tumble from Something Special on CBeebies)...

We had a party for him with 80 of his friends and family, which he seemed to enjoy, was in a little shock seeing his school friends and their parents in the same room as family from Portsmouth and Bristol, and friends from Poole....

.....and must admit Steven did look a little tearful when his sessional worker came in, as thinking about it now, he probably thought she had come to take him out, in other words away from the party.....I know I shouldn't say it, but it was quite sweet watching him give her the odd look over his shoulder to make sure she never made a move, lol... in other words it showed how much he was enjoying himself, as normally he cannot get out the door quick enough with her when she normally turns up.

There was a slight downer at the party though, and that was my dad was too poorly to attend, so we did miss my mum and dad, and I know they missed not coming...

....especially as my darling daughter or should I say not so darling daughter now suddenly appeared with a birthday cake for me, so I ended up having 80 people singing me happy birthday, and to say I was a little embarrassed would be an understatement, lol.....

Steven was fine with this, as we've shared our birthdays since he was born, lol the last time they embarrassed me was on my 40th, when Steven had a bowling party and yes another Birthday cake for me this time with a lovely photo of me with permed hair in my college days.....so I suppose I should have counted myself lucky this was just a shop bought cake with no picture......
