Happy Birthday Charlie!!

So. We have a teenager in the house.
I still don't quite know how that happened!
We've had a lovely day - Charlie was so pleased that his birthday fell on a Saturday, so he could open all his presents in a leisurely fashion, rather than tear through them at breakneck speed in time to catch the school bus.
He had so many fab presents, LOADS of money and was totally spoiled!
My brother and his family came over this morning to see him which was really nice too.
I'd booked a table at a steakhouse in Cardiff, and mentioned on the booking that it was a birthday celebration. Charlie was delighted when the manager brought him a birthday card and an extremely large fruity 'mocktail'!
We went to a firework display last night, but we always have a few fireworks in the back garden on Charlie's birthday too, so his friend Fi came over for some pizza and to watch the fireworks too.
We decided not to have a big birthday cake this year - opting instead for some DC Comics cupcakes.
They were yummy - even if there wasn't much room for the candles!
It really has been such a lovely day. I still can't believe our boy is 13 - a whole new era of his life has begun - one that we scarcely dared to dream might ever happen.
So Happy Birthday Charlie Boy. We love you so much and we are so very, very proud of you. xxx
