HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PRETTYBOY!

His wonderfully-handsome-gorgeousness is 22 today. My Valentine baba. Words can't begin to describe how proud we are, and untidy you are.  But I forgive the trail of beauty products, uni papers, bottle tops and clothes you leave behind you. You far make it up in other ways. Heart of gold, but still on the stingy side. Look out for your siblings. NEVER forget my birthday (coz your dad won''t let you). Have more friends than I do hair follicles - (I've seen today's Facebook....!!). The list could go on........

Born on Valentines Day - exactly when you were due. So very apt, too, with your pretty-boy features and vast female attention (especially the ones that came to the door at 3 in the morning coz they were 'missing you'). You stayed true to your desire to pursue a musical career. Since you were 12 you always said you'd be the drummer in a band. And you have twice - with The Valentines - where you won the prestigious Battle Of The Bands title and had 2 songs added to the Stirling Rocks album. And then on to Casino - where the talent, songwriting and passion is taking off. I predict big things for this band, with music this good it would be a crying shame otherwise. But you guys are playing it cool and even so, local radio have taken an interest.

There's not much I'm not proud of. You are a decent lad, working hard for his future. That really is all any mum could ask for. But I'm privileged with so many added bonuses. So I'm leaving this song you wrote, about your first love. Lynette. My favourite Casino song. I'll give them a second listen and they'll be hooked!
