A WINTERS BEACH DAY | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

Who said you can’t go to the beach in the Winter? Since we got Fleur and since we have always wanted to take her to the beach. We wanted her to be let of the lead and for her to enjoy the fresh sea air, […]

ELEVEN WHOLE YEARS

ELEVEN WHOLE YEARS

Eleven years ago today, we became husband and wife.  We didn’t know a lot back then, but we knew one thing for certain: we belonged together. Now, over a decade later, I can say with absolute certainty that the past eleven years have been the best of my entire life.

Its been full of hard work, ups and downs, accomplishments and successes, disappointments and mistakes. So much to navigate and figure out. But there is no one else I would rather do it with.

I don’t tell you this as often as I should, but I love being your wife. In fact, I’m proud to be your wife. You continue to amaze me year after year. You would do anything for me. Most importantly you put up with me, day in and day out, flaws and all.

You have supported me. You have been my rock,, and my daily encouragement for eleven whole years. Thank you for believing in me, and for helping me believe in myself. The last few years have been hard, but with you by my side I know I can battle anything that is thrown my way.

You’re an amazing dad, and an even better husband. Our marriage is far from perfect, but I honestly believe it’s getting better and better with each passing day. Thank you for loving me the way that you do. Cheers to the next decade, and many many more to come. I love you, Mr B. Always have, always will.

Every month I have decided to pop up a post all about my two. It only seems fitting considering this is a parenting blog. It’s rare that I blog about G and H specifically. I blog about how hard I find parenting and the struggles […]

THE FEAR

THE FEAR

When I was younger I wasn’t afraid of much. The only things that scared me were death, Injun Joe from Tom Sawyer {he sacred me a lot, I have no idea. It didn’t help that my sister would say he was in the wardrobe at night!} and my said sisters goggly eyes in the dark. As I have got older my fears and anxieties have heightened.

I still fear death. I dwell on it far to much and end up over thinking it and then planning my funeral in my head. Bit extreme! I fear the way I am going to die. There is one fear that keeps creeping up and rearing its ugly head and I have to try my damn hardest to push it back down. That fear is caner.

Its doesn’t matter what kind of Cancer, but when you’ve been told you have it once and your at a greater chance of it coming back it does sit there at the forefront of your mind. It never goes away. The fear that it could come back is a fear in itself. This fear doesn’t help my anxiety.

The fear of a rogue mole turning scares me. The mole you least expect and the one you never get checked because you think its fine. I worry so much that after my five years are up under the hospital I find a mole and I don’t have that security blanket anymore of nurses on call and specialist consultants to hand. My biggest fear, is I pass my dodgy genes onto G and H, because you know, thats highly likely. The thought that they could potentially have to go through this because of me scares me. The thought that they could have the same kind of fear I have makes me feel physically sick.

Apparently the most common fears are demons and ghosts. You then have the fears of spiders, cockroaches, snakes, small spaces, water, heights, the list could go on. But I fear that dreaded word the dreaded C word. I fear sitting opposite the consultant and him muttering two simple words of its back. That there is now my biggest fear, not Injun bloody Joe.
