Anticipation – My #WOTW and #R2BC 

By | May 19, 2016

After the last two extremely busy and emotion-filled weeks, it’s been nice to have a reasonable one this week, one in which D has been grinning away in anticipation everyday because tomorrow is her birthday.


It’s been lovely, she’s woken up happy and squeak-filled every day and enjoyed the countdown.  It’s only really the last few years that she’s recognised birthdays and Christmas so her excitement is wonderfully contagious as it feels like sometimes she’s making up for the years she lost out.

Anticipation is definitely our word for the week, the presents are waiting to be wrapped, the cards signed and the balloons ready to be placed in her room whilst she’s asleep so she sees them as soon as she wakes up in the morning.

Oh, the balloons! They caused a few looks today, mainly happy looks from the little children out with their mums and getting them home on the bus was fun – the shop didn’t have a big enough bag to cover them in.  I felt a bit like someone from the “Up” film! 

What else has made us happy this week?
Well, we’re at that time of year when Hubbie has plenty of enquiries for work so that’s a positive.

T received his options details and he was able to change one subject, which is a relief.  He’s very “black and white, no grey” (ie no middle ground) in his thinking so he needed to feel fully happy with his choices, otherwise he just wouldn’t give it focus.

There’s not much else to add really, apart from…

I hope tomorrow is as wonderful for D as she deserves, she’s made us extremely proud in her 11 years so far.

I will be out most of tomorrow and might not have access to WiFi so I want to be one of the first to wish D a very happy birthday x x
