Birthday Shop

Today my darling daughter, Briony, is 15.
It will be very difficult to get a photograph as she hates me taking snaps nowadays.
But on the left is one taken a few weeks ago when we visited by brother and his family.
My brother also shares her birthday and there have been several years when we have celebrated together.

The photo on the right was taken on her seventh birthday when she was more than happy to pose.

Briony was born at home on the day she was due,  June 12th 1997 at 6pm. 
I spent most of the two hour labour in the bath as the gas and air did not work.
My older two children, then six and two, were having tea at a friends house around the corner.
This snapshot was taken just before they arrived home

This year I treated her to some new clothes for her birthday and on Saturday we spent the day shopping in Liverpool where she got some shoes from Office, some tops from Zara and River Island, a faux leather jacket from Warehouse and some jeans from Miss Selfridge.

We are almost the same height and size now which means that both of us have the capacity to double our wardrobes.

Next year she will be 16 and I imagine her birthday trip will include shopping for her Prom.

I can't wait!

For the shopping trip I wore:
Leggings - Tesco
Boots - Clarks
Top - Small boutique in our village
Necklace - Principles.
