I was so tempted to post pictures of her as tiny cute toddler, but she would never speak to me again, so instead you have a photograph of her birthday treat: seeing William Control in Glasgow.
The Girl lives and breathes sweet William. He is the centre of her universe, alongside Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, Stephen Fry, Morrissey and The Cure. We couldn't believe that he was going to be in Scotland for her birthday.
I travelled down to Glasgow with her and wore a hole in my sock prowling the streets while she hung around with "the guys". We stayed at a hotel just behind the venue so she didn't have far to walk back in the dark.

Both The Girl and I agree that Glasgow is somewhere we could live. It's on my list of "Places to Move To" alongside Hebden Bridge (Yorkshire) and Portland Oregon (USA).
I also knitted a sock. A pair of socks! I'll show you them soon.
On Thursday, I took her to Glasgow airport and put her on a plane to London for the next part of her adventure: William Control in Southampton (her dad's half of the birthday tour extravaganza).
I won't see her again for three weeks, stage one in her gradual flight south to live with her dad and start Sixth Form College - woo hoo!
Happy Birthday Girl!
