2 small white wine spritzers and I feel tipsy already.
Don’t know if I’ll make the birthday party tonight, I just want to go to bed!
On the plus side- Annie is loving all the attention from my dad’s side of the family, despite the fact she’s never met most of them.
And she wrote her name!!!! Well she wrote “A n e” on a piece of napkin.
Sad black and white blog, I follow back similar
Annie’s laid in bed with toast and a banana watching Tangled on the laptop.
I’m showered and dressed.
I’ve successfully found Annie’s dress and shrug for the wedding now I’m waiting for my Mum to come get me and take me to Tesco to hopefully find something for me to wear.
Then the 18th birthday party tonight. So I’ve gotta make sure I buy a dress suitable for both haha!
I’m only nipping to the party for an hour or so with my Mum, if my Mum hadn’t been going, I wouldn’t have gone either.
I really need to sleep but Fringe is so good.
I’ve been saying “one more episode” since 9pm.
Looking back through all the old baby photos of Annie and the past 2 years have quite literally passed in the blink of an eye.
When I see the photos of her as a tiny newborn, it takes me a minute to really realise that the tiny, small baby, is definitely Annie. Annie the happy, energetic, drama queen toddler.
Having children is mind blowing.
She was so cute! About 6 months here. 💕💕💕
My little giggler, 1 day old. I can’t even bring myself to accept that it was wind! 😂 I am so broody!
#tbt I am so very broody tonight. I miss my bump! Huge as it was 😬
A quick, windy walk to the shop this afternoon for supplies.
Annie has become very attached to my sister’s old coat (age 5-6) and refuses to wear her own coat that actually fits her properly!
I don’t mind too much because it’s really snuggly warm and makes her happy. It fits ok, it’s mostly just too long for her!
POOR CAIN, I WILL COMFORT YOU. YOU CAN CRY ON MY SHOULDER FOREVER.
Backstreet boys have such a special place in my heart.
They’ve evacuated all the villages around Scunthorpe, the ones close to the River Trent, because of the flood warnings.
Luckily, we’re right out of harms way and in no danger of the floods.
Unfortunately, Ian’s night manager has been evacuated and might not be able to get into work for his night shift tonight so Ian might have to go back into work at 2am to work through until 2pm, after just working a 12 hour 6-6 shift.
He can’t even go to bed because Bart hasn’t let him know whether or not he can get in yet so he just has to wait around to find out!
Hope everyone stays safe if there are flood warnings near you!
I absolutely love the actor who plays Walter Bishop in Fringe. I think Walter is such a great character and my heart aches for him in some episodes where he’s confused, or upset. When he got lost in China Town I was sobbing along with him!
I also can’t believe how much I now love Joshua Jackson. He got beautiful.
The fact that tonight, I have to go through all Annie’s wrapped Christmas presents, well the clothes, and try guess which one is the silver dress and shrug cardigan so she can wear it for the wedding we haven’t even technically been invited to tomorrow.
At least I don’t have to go out and specifically buy her something new to wear but oh my god, it’s gonna go terribly wrong and everything will need re-wrapping.
That’s what I get for being organised this year ha.
It’s amazing how different things seem in the daylight with your two year old sat in your lap, telling you she loves you very much.
I’m so truly grateful for everything I’ve got in life, I’ve been blessed and I consider myself very lucky.
But I am human and I get sad. I need to remind myself that it’s ok to feel sad and the important thing is to try find a solution and to make small, positive changes to try and stop the sadness.
I will be fine ❤️
