Five?! Five?! How did five happen? When did five happen?!
In the past year, Busby has started primary school (and is doing marvellously!). She absolutely adores school and puts her all into her days there. I miss her a lot during the week, and sobbed rather a lot when we dropped her off on that first morning… but I’m appreciating our weekends together even more so now.
I’ve been publishing 6-monthly interviews for about 18 months now, so in-keeping with tradition, I’ve asked Busby a few questions:
What is your name? *says first name*
How old are you? Five
Who is your best friend? Harry
What is your favourite toy? Flopsy – because she is my bestest toy ever.
Where is your favourite place to go? To my grandparents house. Because I like going swimming with them and playing there.
What is your favourite thing about having a brother? Nothing.
What is your favourite thing about having a puppy? Playing with him.
What is your favourite colour? Purple. And pink.
What is your favourite fruit? Apples and oranges.
What is your favourite food? Chocolate ice cream!

Happy Birthday to my lovely little lady! And, of course you can be my assistant when you’re older – when can you start?!
Oh, and Time, please slow down!
