My Regal Princess

It was one of the saddest day in any mother’s life when one of her little ones have to stop living. Fats, through all her pain, had to be put down. I sobbed for days. The memories I have of her, and the most happiest, is when my LO met up with her in Singapore in August and loved playing with her – brushing her fur, sitting next to her basket and feeding her cat biscuits. Fats, I’ll miss you but I’m so happy that you’ve met the LO. Know that I love you and will always love you. Big kisses my brave girl.


One day I’ll wake up and you’ll be speaking…

Christmas Cheer December 25, 2011

Nothing like a Mummy’s excitement at Christmas. It’s your 2nd and boy, oh, boy do you understand pressies. However, unwrapping them can get quite tedious and dull for a 20-month-old so we had to stop, with a few more to go under the tree. The Christmas tree – now, you helped decorate that one. Putting some lovely ribbons on it was your idea 🙂 You’ve been so good about not touching the tree. In fact, you’ve been brilliant about not meddling with too many of the bits and pieces of furniture in the house.  I know that I’ll look forward to many more Christmases with you. You’ve rejuvenated me at Christmas.
