Key of the Door

Well, it's finally happened.

My eldest child has reached her majority.

I feel quite old.

I was going to give her the wisdom of my experience, but as they say, advice, like youth, is wasted on the young.

So instead, I have waved her off at the door on her way out to her celebration.

Actually, I helped her down the snow-covered path into the taxi because it is quite difficult to walk in snow whilst wearing five-inch stillettoes.

I do, however, have a word of advice for anyone who happens to be out in Manchester tonight:

Happy Birthday, kiddo.

Happy Birthday to her, and brace yourself Manchester.

Luckily 'Number 2 Son' who lives in Manchester was in Leeds tonight for a footy match so no danger of running into that particular hazard! :)
Hope she has a fantastic evening & gets home safely. 1 down, 4 to go!

I think I saw her! No only kidding. My eldest was 39 last Sunday - Oh God I can't be that old!

Working Mum said...

Happy Birthday to her! Sounds like she had the right idea to me - I got engaged on my 21st, oh, the folly of youth!
