Darling Maya

Watching you grow this last twelve months has been an honour, a pleasure and an unbridled joy.

I’m grateful for every moment I’ve spent with you.

Thank you for the smiles,

the laughter


and the endless dressing up opportunities.

You’ve taught me so much about life and how we should live.  Thank you for being curious,


and hilarious;


for delighting in new things,


and for devouring life with gusto.

Thank you for bringing me even closer to your father,

happy birthday

to our families,

Nan <3to friends old and new,


and the wider world around us.

International relations

Thank you Maya for showing me I’m loved.  

Even on the days I cry at the end of my tether.

Even on the days I do you wrong.


Thank you for the good times, the bad times and the frankly rather blah times.  

You make the ordinary extraordinary.
