Today is Lil Chicky’s birthday.
So I thought I’d tell you a birthday story.
The first one was fraught with competitive friction.
This young whippersnapper had the front to question her big sister’s attempts at teaching birthday best practice
|Her (L) and me (R)|
But it wasn’t long before she got the hang of it
|Sisterly pride in the background|
And tried to muscle in
|‘What’s the deal? It’s my birthday, not yours!’|
So I had to re-assert my authority
|Birthday territory re-established|
And by the time we got to her 21st, we had learnt to share
|21st birthday of Lil Chicky (in the green dress)|
So we played happily together

Happy Birthday Chicky!

And it still does Charlie!
Love the first picture. Her face speaks a thousand words.
Thanks Jane. Glad you enjoyed it.
Jack, you are correct. I do not know that one. Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves is definitely more my vintage
VW I am often grateful to Mum and Lil Chicky – they scanned squillions of old photos on to CDs so I can have them over here. They are priceless!
Glad you enjoyed them.
I feel a song coming on…
'Sisters' by Rosemary Clooney and Trudy Stevens.
You're both too young to remember that one!
What a lovely story and a great complement to both of you!
Brilliant post! Love the pics!
