Today is a super special post and dedicated to my best friend and number one fan. My Mum.

Why today? Well, it’s only her birthday of course! The one day of the year where the dog gets up before her to yap at my horrendous rendition of Happy Birthday!

I’ll keep it short and sweet because I know you hate the limelight but thank you for all that you are (even though you drive me insane 99.9% of the time), thank you for everything you’ve ever done for me, putting up with the tears, tantrums, and huffs. Thank you for always believing in me, for giving me endless laughs, for making me roll my eyes and mutter ‘freak’ at your horrendous jokes. For all of the bad and the good, the happy and the sad.

I would not be who I am today without you (I admit I’m a bit batty but I guess they say like mother like daughter ey?) so thank you and I hope that you have the most magical day. You enjoy your Lulu Guinness gift that I’ve managed to keep secret for a whole month and please when you read this make sure that you’re not sober. It’s your birthday after all. 21 today and as radiant as always!

There’s no show without punch – Ziggy wishes you a happy birthday and has asked if because it’s your birthday does it mean he’s getting halibut for his dinner?

Cheers to all the great times we’ve had and the great times yet to come. Love you always Momma Bear!

P.S The majority of these photos are from various Vegas trips….I think it’s a sign we need to get on the plane and touch down in my favourite place in the whole wide world!
