Into the Woods
All words and pictures © Nina Nixon
On the 1st November Tabi celebrated her 7th birthday. To mark the occasion we took her and a handful of friends for a stomp into the woods.
We climbed tress, lit a campfire and played hide and seek in the heather. Built dens and rode the notorious mud slide, the filth was unbelievable but we egged each other on and laughed and laughed until our sides ached.
Frankfurters were cooked washed down with hot chocolate and marshmallows toasted, all on the base camp fire.
Wood smoke lingered on our lips and in the air.
It was the best birthday celebration.....'ever!'
A most prestigious day if ever one was to be had for a small girl with blond bouncing ringlets. The most amazing blue eyes that twinkle when she smiles and 'oh boy' that smile can melt the heart of many an unsuspecting. With the warmest of natures and kindest of hearts - it is a pleasure to have her in our lives.
Happy birthday dearheart.
