On the one hand it seems incredible that it’s as long as 12 years since Meg arrived on Valentine’s Day. And yet to remember a time before Meg was around seems, well, a lifetime ago.
My little birthday girl is away to the SECC in Glasgow today to see “Strictly Come Dancing: The Live Tour” with her mother and big sister.
It’s no understatement to say that Meg has been obsessed with the BBC TV series, Strictly Come Dancing, for the past couple of years. She has a DVD, which has been watched in excess of 200 times.
I am not exaggerating.
So when Maggie found out last year that the live tour of Strictly was going to be in Scotland on Meg’s 12th birthday, tickets were booked immediately.
Meg was up very early this morning.
The enjoyment, or not, of Strictly in this house is split very much along gender lines. Rogan and I have been filling our time instead with a trip to the beach to lob stones in the calm, misty sea.
We’ll find out what the performance was like when the girls get home tonight.
UPDATEThey had a wonderful time and Meg thoroughly enjoyed herself. They even announced birthday wishes to Meg, as Maggie had sent a hopeful email ahead a few days before asking if they might.
Meg has gone to bed exhausted after a long day, but very happy
