IMG_1811I had to take a picture: The trendiest ten year old this side of the Thames…check out those shoes! We bonded over Molly (nose in pic)

It’s really weird but having The Husband away has put a spotlight on my inability string two words together…he calls up from some remote part of China and all that comes out is  ‘Dog..forgot….children..crack of dawn…breakfast..ate pack lunch..blood..murder..’

But as the connections have been so bad I have resorted to sending him an email every day – just to let him know he’s not been forgotten..and relatively witty banter rattles out of my finger tips. Begs the this evolution in progress and am I turning into a computer keyboard?

He’s coming home today.  Good thing as I’ve just found this.  If no more posts appear, you’ll know why..

IMG_1917Maybe he’ll stay away..

Laters, if possible, Kate x

      It’s going to be kept, locked away..only coming out on very special occasions like 18 birthdays, 21 birthdays, engagements parties and weddings…revenge is a dish best served cold..with cobwebs.. xxx

      I fear she is a chip off the old is exactly the sort of thing I used to write. Thankfully for me, my parents never kept any of them…unfortunately for Bella they amuse me faaaar to much! xxx

    Indeed, that trendy ten year old is rockin’ some funky style…
    and looks like Bella is rockin some funky literary style…
    love her writing–thick pink marker + heart with the X …
    both would look cool on a fun graphic tee! 😉

    I’m liking your thinking! It IS a great nice to have a silver lining! and, as I said to husband – it’s all spelt correctly…maybe we need more tantrums? I can see myself driven to drink…rapidly xxx

      It’s now safely in my memory the time I didn’t bat an eyelid…she then came in to speak to me all happy as Larry…the angst having been lanced by the writing (funny that) so I said…what’s all this then? And she laughed! Cheeky Moo…

    Glad to read from the comments that you’re keeping the note, I have a few (the really lovely ones and the really awful ones) from my boys, ready to be displayed at the most embarrassing future moments 🙂 Oh how I miss London, I was in for the day yesterday to get my culture hit, you don’t get kids that cool in this sleepy Kent village!

      I’m a bit of a squirrel when it comes to letters and notes..I’ve even got all my old love letters to share with them when they’re older…just to prove that when you think the worst has happened, it hasn’t and far better things lie round the corner. And to prove we do know what they’re going through! I hope you enjoyed your day..I admire anyone who goes beyond their horizon..but I do love my little bubble…xxx

    I wish I was that cool when I was 10! (I really like her trousers too!!) And that letter is gorgeously hilarious, I used to write the same… And they came out on my birthdays. Awkward. Haha!

    I’m laughing at the love note. Last week I drove my 15 year old son home from school, which I leave work to do every day at 9:30am because he goes to one school in the AM and our neighborhood school in the PM. As he was leaving the car I reminded him that the house door may be locked, because I am starting to get paranoid. He does have a key. His response was, “I hate you.” Because it is ever so inconvenient for him to get his key out of his backpack to unlock the door. 15. You have another decade of this. Stock up on the wine.

      Judging by the comments above I could have a lovely amount accumulated by the time she is…seven! Have them made into a book (just for her I hasten to add!) that she can then read to her children…or not! xxx

      I KNOW!! Thats when you just wring your hands as a parent..when there is no logic or common sense..still will make the wedding speech far more amusing.. xxx
