Rabbiting On.

Our son turned 16 this weekend. Sweet sixteen and never been k... er, not sure about the last bit! What happened to that little baby I held in my arms, that little skinny kid who 'zoomed and whooshed' and all those other noises that boys make whilst playing? The time has passed in the blink of an eye. I'm not old enough (come off it Fi! ) to have a 16 year old. I should still have toddlers wanting the playdoh out, or the paddling pool filled, or their shoes buckling! I should still have a little, soft, pudgy hand, holding mine; not a strapping young man looking down at me from way above! Oh how I enjoy being a mum. It's the best job in the world!
What ever size they are!
On another bright note, I've kindly been given an award from Sal, over at Sals Snippets. Thank you very much, I feel like I'm having a second Christmas!
It comes with these rules:
1. The winner may put the logo on their blog
2. Put a link to the person who sent out the award
3. Nominate three blogs for this award
4. Put links to their blogs
5. Leave a message for your nominees.
Heck! only 3 other blogs, that's going to be hard the list of blogs on my favourites has me scrolling and scrolling!
My first nominee is Lucy over at Attic24
I don't know what she's on, but I wish I had some. Talented, bubbley, vibrant, zingy. That's Lucy, oh and a little bit bonkers. (in the nicest possible way)
My second nominee is Lesley at Lesleys Creations
Lesley has enriched my life enormously, she is so kind and generous, sharing her skills and her friendship. I feel truly blessed to have her as my friend. She makes a mean piece of felt too!
And last but not least my third nomination is Hen at HenHouse
This young lady makes me smile every time I pop by her gentle blog. For me Hen's little world is a bit like the 'Darling Buds of May' homely and pretty, and I can always smell cakes baking!
OO! I enjoyed that more than I thought I would. I smiled all the way through typing that.
I promised you bunny parts last time, and I'm all ready to give you bunny parts, but apparently my computer is not!
I haven't got the faintest. It's just decided to play silly beggars, and won't let me open my picture files. And, since it is now eight minutes past midnight, I'm afraid the will to sleep is stronger than the will to sort the computer out. Sorry and all that!
So hopefully next time we'll be fully bunnied up!
Night, night.
love Fi x
ps. I've tried three times to space the paragraphs out in this post, but everytime I press publish, it just squishes every thing together. I'm seriously thinking of changing to Typepad!

Hope your son had a great day...and that you enjoyed your award ;-)

Happy Birthday to your strapping young lad! You definitely do look too young to have a 16 year old. Thanks you for the award but I cracked up when you said my life is like The Darling Buds of May - but I won't shatter your illusions! Now if only I looked like Catherine Zeta Jones... Not sure about Michael Douglas though (but I'll take the holiday home they have in Bermuda, thank you very much)!

I would not have believed you were old enough to have a 16 year old, mind you I have an 11 year old, trouble is she thinks she's a 16 year old! lol
My little Danny man keeps me cheerful though! We weren't going to have a second, lack of money and all that then I admitted to myself that I really wanted another and hey presto, one gorgeaous little boy, who will be 3 on Saturday!

(ps Cheque was posted yesterday 25/01/09)
take care

Happy birthday to your son. I know just how you feel as I have a 16 year old. I was recently looking through their baby photos - where did the years go?

Hi Fi, I know exactly how you feel. My oldest son is 15 in March, 6ft 2ins, size 11 feet, beard and attitude. Absolute darling though! Hope your son had a lovely day. Love your blog and your wonderful needlework. Karenx
