January Twins

Well, January birthday season is mostly for the twins in this family. Saskia and Eartha turned 7 a few days ago, and we did the ritual presents, cake and candles thing. They both made wishes, concentrating really hard and screwing their eyes up.
My eldest twins had their birthday at the beginning of the month, which they share with one of their cousins in Canada. There are a couple of other Canadian relatives that also have birthdays in January, not least Nick's twin sisters: Lyn and Di.Saskia and Eartha are really excited because we've decided to send them to Canada with Nick when he goes in March. It will be their first time visiting Nana in Canada and all the relatives and Eartha, for one, is buzzing with anticipation.
She badgered Nick into letting her phone Nana last night. Nana doesn't hear too well anymore, so she handed the phone over to Nick's younger sister, Kate, who had a long chat with Eartha. This has fueled Eartha's plans for the trip and she is hyper with excitement. I dread to think how strung out she will be by the time they actually leave. I've got six weeks ahead of me, living with the Duracell Bunny.
