A long time ago somebody told me that they couldn’t think of Ben as my little brother, but he is and today is his birthday!
Nowadays our relationship is pretty straightforward, it didn’t used to be. As we hit our 30’s, it got easier and Oliver put the seal on it. As Ben says that he can talk about Olly’s fabulousness all day and as I agree with him, there’s no fighting!
That’s not entirely true but Ben is a great Dad and being a father seems to have made him more relaxed about other stuff, including his bossy big sister!!
This year Ben and Laura went through something really horrible, they coped and are coping in a way that I’m not sure that I could have.
So happy birthday Ben, hope this year is better than the last!
