A special day




Yesterday was a special day. It was my sister's birthday, among other things.

Among the other things was the fact that we met. And we spent the day mooching round antique shops, junk shops, had lunch, coffee, tea and a lot of talking. And giggling.

I have been trying to put into words what it is like meeting one of your sisters for the first time after a lifetime. I can't. It keeps coming out wrong.

But this is Phillippa. She is number four of five (if you count me as the eldest) and third of four if you don't. And she is just great.

Happy Birthday again, Pill.

There's not that much to say other than 'wow' is there? Wow.

And happy birthday to Phill.

I wish I could have been there, with both of you. I'm so looking forward to the day we can meet.

I'll add to the wows, it looks so wonderful, so natural, both of you together. Beautiful. And happy birthday, Vanessa's sis!

There cant be many birthdays that end up with one of the pressies being a hello like that one.

Hello Susie... It is confirmed... we are very alike, down to our sticky out tooth and a shared enjoyment for garibaldi biscuits... wehave to get the priorities right, n'est-ce pas?
