A Happy Birthday

My youngest granddaughter, Eryn, is 10 today and some of the family clubbed together to buy her a BMX bike. I went with my daughter to collect and pay for it at Wimbledon on Tuesday before driving home to Poole.

During my morning walk with Jade today I called Eryn to say Happy Birthday before she went to school. I've never known her to be so speechless before. All she seemed able to say was, "Thank you for my present," several times. Apparently she is over the moon with the bike and had been outside riding it alongside her Mum and dog well before 8 am.

How lovely! It is one of the nice things about being a child, that people give you presents sometimes that you will remember forever.

Thank you Jenny. You're right. I remember when my sister and I got our first bikes for Christmas. We used to have pillow cases full of presents left next to our beds and that year they were a bit disappointing, until we went out of the bedroom onto the landing where Santa had left our bikes.
