A Birthday Weekend

It's Daniel's 17th birthday today. I can't believe how fast the last seventeen years have gone, it doesn't seem two minutes since I was meeting my first born for the very first time.

He's enjoyed the lead up to his birthday. On Friday night he went to see Leeds Rhinos V Manly Sea Eagles at Headingley in the World Cup Challenge. Leeds won 26-12 which he was pleased about.

Last night, he went out with friends for something to eat and then to the cinema to see The Grey. He's been wanting to see it for a while and just managed to get there for the last screening before it's taken off the listings. He said it was a good film, but the ending was predictable.

It's a cold but sunny day here today so I think we'll go out for a walk somewhere before we go to Frankie and Benny's for tea, then Daniel and Mick are going indoor cricket training, that's something which Daniel won't miss whether it's his birthday or not.

Happy Birthday, Daniel.

  10. Daniel has asked me to thank you all for your birthday wishes, they were much appreciated.

    Jan - Daniel doesn't have any plans to start driving yet. He wouldn't be able to afford the insurance never mind a car, so has decided to put it on hold for now.
