Birthday Boy

Today my fluffy baby turns two years old. TWO! I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone. It doesn’t seem that long ago that he was tiny like this. Today is a Bank Holiday which means the weather is awful (no surprise there) so my plan to take him for along forest walk is probably not going to happen.
