We wish you a Merry Christmas,

We wish you a Merry Christmas,

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Look, little Jack's wearing his cosy Christmas pudding hat!

We're spending Christmas this year with your Gran and Gogga - it's your cousin Jack's first Christmas as he was only a week old last year and was still in hospital. So we're even more excited to show him the ropes, as it were…

We all hope you have a great time with your Mum and Dad girls, including your beautiful dog Annie! Oh and hope you enjoy the presents we've sent to both of you:


Lots of love to you,

Your Uncle Paul, Auntie Lucy and your little cousin Jack! xxx

Oh and don't forget Hudson and Morgan of course, ha!

Huge Great Big Happy 12th Birthday Evie!

Happy Birthday to you,

Happy Birthday to you,

Happy Birthday dear Evieeeeee…

Happy Birthday to you!

A massive Happy Birthday to you our wonderful little niece, wow you're 12 years old already - growing up fast! We thought we'd buy you something that I would have loved to get for a present when I was twelve years old, so here are a few photos of what you will have opened today. From what I can see on the web, you seem to enjoy drawing as much as I did as a little girl so hopefully these things will come in useful for you. If they don't then send them all the way back here and I'll make good use of them!

Have a lovely day of it, lots of love to you from

Your Auntie Lucy, Uncle Paul and your little cousin Jack xxx

Huge Happy Birthday Rose!

June 3, 2017

Huge happy returns of the day to our beautiful niece Rose - above is a little film for you - your Auntie Lucy and cousin Jack wanted to sing you some birthday wishes!

Have a lovely day with your family and hope you get lots of treats. Some of them will be what we've sent you from up here in Scotland!




So, some piecing together, some colouring in and some making things - it's all the pastimes I used to like doing when I turned 9 years old,

with lots of love from Auntie Lucy, Uncle Paul and your little cousin Jack xxx




Big Huge Happy 11th Birthday to our niece Evie!

December 3, 2016
You're becoming a grown up little girl now, eleven years old! I decided to make you something to wear and I hope you like it.

I went to a workshop to teach me how to make jewellery just as your Mum does. I know you like making things like me, so I made you a necklace with art charms on it - a palette for mixing paint, a tube of paint and a paint brush. It was fun making it and I hope the chain fits around your neck! Here are a few photos to show you what I did...

I drew up a plan

Happy 9th Birthday Evie!

December 1, 2014

Huge Happy Birthday to you from both of us - hope you have a lovely day! 

 So sorry we can’t phone and talk to you, but this will have to do just now.

While I was packing for moving house, I came across paintings and drawings I did when I was a little girl. As a child my Mum, your Gran, always told me to date my work. It used to make me grumpy back then, but I'm glad she made me now!

Look at what I did it when I was your age, 9 years old. We'd love to see something of yours just now – pu...
