Elizabeth is 8 today and to celebrate her big day she’s put together a list of activities for us to do:
We found it interesting that she put “open presents” as one of the last things to do today. She has opened a couple of present already this morning but all the rest she’s chosen to save for later. This is impressive and demonstrates that she’s developed a sense of delayed gratification.
Hogmanay is the Scottish word for New Year’s Eve which is widely celebrated in Scotland. Elizabeth doesn’t mind sharing a birthday with Hogmanay and, if anything, it means she avoids the post-Christmas blues because she’s excited for her special day. As much of the planet sings Auld Lang Syne over the next 24 hours bear in mind that this is a Scottish folk song which is based on a poem reportedly written by the Scottish poet, Robert Burns.

I am exhausted just reading her list.
She is a gem.
I wish you were here with us to enjoy the panto again this year.
Happy Birthday, Elizabeth! Also, a happy New Year to the whole family. I’ve enjoyed reading about your adventures this past year and look forward to many more!
Happy New Year to you too! I’m sure there’ll be lots of new adventures in 2018.
Happy birthday, Elizabeth.
What an organised mind she has! And what a lovely day she has lined up, hope she enjoys it.
