As a mother to a 1997-model, I really do agree, time flies, and it seems like.... yesterday!
Have a great day Vanessa.

It's so sad the speed they grow up! My daughter is soon to start senior school, scary!

Just let me know about Ippity, I've sold a few more since updating my blog but I still have a few left. I don't see Allison at all really, other than the odd leader meeting. No problem to do PayPal for you though.

Hi Nessy, your card is just brilliant. So much better than the boys card you buy in the shops. You wouldn't guess you have any problems with boys cards! My little girl will be 4 in a month or so, I don't know where those years have gone and can't imagine her turning 14! Sarah
