Birthday Boy

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Sorry for being absent again but my mojo is really not playing at the moment.

Anyhoo 11 years ago today ( a Sunday too), i was just waking up in hospital after spending the night there with contractions i couldn`t feel.
9am arrives and i am drinking a cuppa and having a chat with a student midwife when my waters broke.
Without going into too much detail i was quite close to labour, it had all happened in my
A frantic phonecall from the hospital to my Hubby & Mum and i was taken down the delivery suite.
9.50 am my Hubby & Mum arrived to find me walking around the room eating toast and chatting to the midwife.
Just 20 minutes later we had a tiny 5lb 10oz buddle of love in our lifes.
Happy Birthday Jack, love
So here is my card for his Birthday today, far from on form at the moment but i know he`ll like what is inside.
