To our great-nephew, 2 today.
Have a wonderful day Little Plum,
Lots of love, 
Aunty Taity and Uncle Neal. x

And talking of the little people in my life ......

I've made many friends through the Blogosphere but not for one moment did I expect to become a penpal with someone so much younger than myself. 

Surprised (but honoured) to be approached by a fellow blogger, I agreed to correspond with Little Diva (6), to tell her a little of life here in the north east of England.

Well, I've never let age be a barrier to friendship, so why start now?

Great video! Hope your nephew has a wonderful birthday. I love that you have a new pen pal. How fun! You never know what you will learn from a 6 year old.

Wonderful sentiments and whole-heartedly agree....books, blogs, even friendship in general can bridge the miles and the age gap.
