The princess has turned one today. Incredible. I have spent the last couple of days saying “Remember this time last year?” I really can’t believe that she’s one.
Like the Queen she is going to have an official birthday and a real one. Today will be just a private family celebration. In a couple of weeks there will perhaps be a brunch where she will crawl among her minions and shake hands with people offering her posies.

Hey there – thank you. You will never guess what but, yes, last night she slept from midnight to seven (there were a couple of whimpers but nothing to get me up). This is the longest I have stayed in bed since this time last year. Am ecstatic.

Well Happy Birthday to herself. Maybe the extra sleep was in preparation for all the partying and general frivolity she’s planning on having. I presume those pictures of her on the phone were invitations to the aforementioned minons – with detailed instructions on how big the gifts must be before entry is allowed and the birthday rusks can be consumed.

You are so right Locotes. There may, however, be brownies for the royal birthday. Rusks, ha!
