Why Do I Have A Happy Son?

Well, it's very simple really. He wrote a letter to one of his heroes, the amazing Sir David Attenborough, and he got a reply!

We were not expecting a reply because we had had problems getting an International Reply Coupon so I put a note in saying we couldn't get one and would understand if Sir David didn't reply.

The fact that he relied with a handwritten note is just amazing and really made Z happy. We are going to frame it so he can keep it safe and put it up on his bedroom wall, along with the reply he got from Sir David's daughter in January.

(He is pretty happy all of the time so this is not a new experience for him!)

I did find it rather apt that he got this letter on the same day his latest issue of National Geographic Kids arrived in the mail.

He wants to write to him again to say thank you for replying.


  1. Awwww, this is so cute. It made my day!
    What a legend.

  2. So lovely! Made my day as well.
    Congratulations to little Z!!


14 year olds & Green Cards

Did you know that you need to get a new green card when you turn 14? Do you know the reason why? No really, I'd like to know why. ...
