Lammas Blessings to my pagan friends! Or, happy Lughnasadh if you prefer. I always struggle with pronunciation on that name. The harvest festival is a double blessing for me because we celebrate the birthday of my youngest daughter, my little Lammas baby, who just reached the grand old age of 3 and is officially no longer a toddler. It feels very strange, and I admit I did get a little bit tearful on the eve of her birthday.
This is where I would usually share a photograph from her birthday party, or a shot of her opening her gifts, but unfortunately my phone did not save half a dozen photos from the birthday morning, and the party was so busy that I never had chance to even think about taking a photo. I think perhaps it was a sign from the divine to remind me that enjoying the moment is more important than capturing it, at least sometimes.
Well, the school summer holiday continues with a mixture of fun activities (we had an afternoon of painting last week), walks with the dog and friends, and great big screaming tantrums. No, not me, the children, you cheeky so-and-so! At the weekend we are planning a daytrip to the Blue Planet Aquarium to celebrate our daughter’s birthday, and then we are on countdown to our family holiday by the sea at the end of August. How is your summer holiday progressing?
