Jemma is 16!

Just a quick post today, now that I am back to updating weekly rather than daily.
Jemma turned 16 yesterday!
She had a little lie in after spending the previous evening next door with her friend Laura until late. Amber set the breakfast table with all her favourite cereals and lots of freshly picked fruit.
Lunchtime was in the gazebo in the garden, decorated with bunting, English rose lanterns and handmade party blowers (by Amber). A perfect hot sunny day at 30C, with Jem's favourite cake, a strawberry topped cheesecake - Yum! We had a quiet lunch, just the four of us.
Jemma loved the little gifts we had bought, but her main present is still in production and will only arrive on Friday. Her very own laptop!! by Dell and in Spring green too. It was a total surprise, which we had purposefully kept a secret. She is very pleased and a little shocked.
