134 days to go: Happy Birthday to my cheeky monkey
I remember Wednesday March 8th 1995 so clearly.
It was a wintry morning - cold and wet - and I wrapped up my three-year-old before dropping him off at playgroup.
I returned home to tidy up and have a rest before collecting my firstborn at lunchtime for an afternoon treat to the fabric shop.
We had lunch out and then I bought some blue material and a little gold bell before returning home to transform it into a Noddy hat.
I fed, bathed and put my son to bed - snuggling up under the duvet with him to read his favourite Noddy story.
One hour later - at 8.30pm - the familiar tightening pains came and my husband drove us to hospital.
Forty five minutes later Joseph Michael made his entrance at breakneck speed and he hasn't stopped since.
Here he is a few days later in 1995 and on Sunday after opening his birthday gift, an Ipod Touch.
Don't you just love his slippers!
Happy Birthday Joe.
