Today is Daniel's 18th birthday.
I don't know where the last 18 years have gone. It doesn't seem two minutes since he was a bouncing baby.
This year, he's due to head off to university to study Physics with Astrophysics. I'm having sleepless nights already.
We're going out for a meal tonight, and then we're having a small party on Saturday, to which Daniel's friends, and close family and family friends are invited to help us celebrate.
We're so proud of Daniel, he's grown to be a sensitive, mature (sometimes) and caring young man. He's got fantastic opportunities ahead of him so I hope he grabs them with both hands.
Happy birthday Daniel. xxx
