We hope that there's a celebratory mood in the Arbuthnot/Dorothy household this morning as young Dotty awakens to her 8th birthday.
Mrs The Millbrooker and I failed utterly to get it together to send a card last year. So this year I'm making sure that everyone's favourite Millbrookian blonde knows we've remembered.
Here's one of Dotters four years ago as she marked her 4th birthday at The 'Ark. Note the days before the smoking ban as Arbuthnot puffs away at the bar behind our heroine.
Happy birthday, Dotters.
