My friend Lauren (ScrapbookBlog) publishes interviews with her children in the run up to their birthdays – I always enjoy reading them and so I thought i’d do the same with Luisa, as she’s just not long turned four and is a real chatterbox!



In mid May we celebrated Luisas fourth birthday with a family BBQ and are planning to have a little party for her nursery friends soon. We’ve put it off as she had an operation coming up and we just want that all over with for now. She loves to bake, cook, garden and ride her bike or scooter. Her and Cali (our cocker spaniel) are the best of friends.

To be honest she could still do with having a nap but that rarely happens unless we’re on a car journey over 30 mins or she’s poorly. I would say she’s a pretty typical four year old – full of personality and energy. She’s definitely smaller than 95% of her peers but it doesn’t hold her back at all, there’s not a climbing frame she can’t master!



On with the interview!
