My niece is turning six this week. Six! Where do the years go? She was born the week I got out of hospital and I remember her being such a beacon of light and love and joy. She was the beginning of some better times (no pressure kiddo!).
I made her a little birthday card last night, squinting and fussing over it in my dark lounge room (why do I always start these things at stupid times of night?) and can now see there’s a few boo-boos on it (her arms for a start a little bit bent!) and the writing is dodgy but it’s cute enough, and it’s the thought that counts, right?
She and her siblings spend a lot of time at the beach, so I thought a mermaid was appropriate (and, honestly, I just felt like drawing a mermaid, as you do!).
Happy Birthday Miss Six – you’re a delightful little water baby and we love you very, very much. Enjoy your special day xxx
