Hurrah, you’re here! And you most certainly made this a Christmas to remember. Thank you. Now, I went shopping on the 23rd December (while you were imminently arriving) and tried to find you a Christmas present. The thing was, you already had a million soft toys, baby grows and other baby stuff. I wanted to give you something with a bit more weight. Something a bit more lasting. Which is why we’re here. For the first year of your life, I shall share with you some useful lessons me and your mum learnt along the way. We’ve been friends for ten years at this point (much to our relief- when I was 18 we read an article in Cosmo that friendships only have a five year life span. Lesson learnt? Never read Cosmo. It’s absolute tripe!) So, after ten years, we have learnt quite a bit about this strange old life. So, if you’re ready, then here we go Lottie MIa, one year’s worth of life advice to you from me.
Yours with love, Auntie Spudge
