Today, 14th August 2014, is my beautiful grand-daughter, Caitlin’s birthday.
She is 16 years old and I can’t believe how the years have flown. I know that everyone says that, don’t they ? But its true.
It doesn’t seem so long ago that she was a smiley, happy little toddler, clinging to my hand as we wandered around the shops in York.
She regularly stayed with me and I used to love taking her out and about; she was always such a delight. Well behaved, with beautiful manners and a sunny disposition.
And that is how she is today. She still comes to stay, though not as often, but we always have fun and I am enormously proud of her.
No doubt she will question my choice of photograph. She is without her usual, carefully applied make-up and, like all girls of her age, her ‘selfies’ show her with a well-practiced ‘pout’.
But this is how I see her.
A lovely, natural, smiling girl, who makes the world a better place with her presence.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAITLIN ……. I hope you have a wonderful day !!
