First birthday blues

Poor Elliot's first birthday wasn't exactly the jelly-and-cake fest we'd all been looking forward to on account of him being struck down by the plague. (Did I mention we'd all been poorly? I did? Oh.) Rather than soft play and presents we had snotty noses and uncontrollable crying. There's not much else to say about Ellington's first birthday, but it does lead nicely into some interesting images of cards from his granny's first birthday, which look like they're from another world!

My mum dug these out from a box of old photos and bits and pieces from my own nan, who is sadly no longer with us, and I had to post them up as they're so spookily weird/brilliant. Right, now to dig Elliot's birthday cards out of the recycling bin, so he can freak out his kids in the year 2081.

With apologies for the crappy photography, I snapped them on my ailing iPhone.

Lovely. The top one looks like an old pound note.
