We’ve had a great weekend celebrating the milestone of turning five. Yesterday with a party and today more quietly at home, opening presents and indulging the girls every whim for cake, apple juice, balloons and Mary Poppins.
We also did the final edit on these videos. Here’s Leah’s first five years distilled into two minutes. The soundtrack is sung by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, chosen because Leah loves the Wizard of Oz and because I used to play this a lot when I was settling her to sleep when she was a baby. Then Eve, played to The La’s, a great Liverpool band befitting of Eve’s heritage and suiting her effervescent energy.
Happy birthday my darling girls and thank you. The last five years have been the happiest of my life x
