2013 Project365 (Day 93)

Happy AnniversaryToday The Mister and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary with a trip to the soft play centre. It’s not exactly the most romantic place in the world but hey ho!

Three years ago was one of the best days of my life, only equalled by the birth of my beautiful son.

Being married to the right person is so important and I like to think that The Mister and I complement each other, even though we are so very different. My post from last year talks about the fact that I feel very lucky and that hasn’t changed, in fact I feel even more strongly about that now.

We are lucky and life is good.

So, My lovely Mister, I love you so much and here’s to many more year to come xxx

(I know the photo is odd because it looks like my arms have been dislocated but this is the only picture we have of the two of us which was taken today!)

2013 Project365 (Day 45)

WIth love... Valentines Day. Of course the obvious choice for a photo of the day is me and my lovely husband.

I know that Valentine’s Day is cheesy and over-commercialised but I still like the opportunity to tell my wonderful husband how much I love him.

Since we got together my life has been better and better and I love being with him, spending time together and I appreciate so much the things he does and who is he. My life is infinitely richer because we are together.

Seeing him with The Little Mister makes me love him even more. Life is good and we are so fortunate.

2012 Project365 (Day 366)

Happy New YearWe’ve made it!!! To the end of the year and to the end of Project365. It has been a momentous year to do this project and I think I am going to try and carry on. As I said before I may not comment as much but I will try and post a picture every day.

Thankyou for being with us on this epic journey and through this project. The Mister, The Little Mister and I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and we hope that 2013 will continue to bless and prosper everyone that we know.

The end of 2012

March 2012_6138Well, if I thought that 2011 was a momentous year then 2012 has really eclipsed it!

The Mister started his new job in January 2012 and we have both had to get used to him doing shift work. He seems to be enjoying his job, although hopefully there will be more developments that stretch him and give him more opportunities to show off his skills. Work for me has just continued along as usual. It would seem that drug users are the same wherever you work although the drugs of choice are different on the island.

August 2012_7001August 2012_7003Being back in Guernsey has been wonderful. The opportunity to spend time with my family has been fab. My nephew, Barnabas, and niece, Eden, have continued to entertain us throughout the year and it has been particularly nice to see the relationship between them and The Mister develop. He is brilliant with them!

DelilahThe sad bit of the year was when we had to have our lovely cat Delilah put to sleep. She had been getting more and more poorly and had renal failure, but she ended up getting hit by a car and had substantial injuries which meant that we had to take the tough decision. I know that it was the right decision, but I still really miss her. I miss the fact that she used to sit on my lap when I was watching TV.

The last day.In June we went to Sark Folk Festival which was absolutely brilliant, apart from the camping was pretty basic! The music was amazing and the opportunity to spend some time on the beautiful island of Sark was pretty special. I would love to go back in 2013 but all the tickets have been sold and I decided the only way that I would go back next year would be if we could do it in a B&B. Sadly, there all the rooms were booked up before the end of the 2012 festival. Oh well, another year then!

We also had a little trip to the UK to go to my cousin Sam and Sally’s wedding. It was fab, but boy was it wet! Shame it was in a marquee and I required my wellies by the end of the day!!

August 2012_7341As usual in August we went camping with Tom and Anne and the kids, and pants and Alien. We stayed at a lovely campsite in Wales and then went to Greenbelt which was pretty much a giant mudbath. I have never seen so much mud at a festival and by the end of the weekend the centre part of the racecourse was pretty much impassable. Also I was so happy to catch up with Peterson Toscano again. So many things had changed for us both since we had last seen each other. After the festival we stayed a couple of nights in Bath before catching the boat home.

August 2012_6997We bought a house in September after a ridiculously prolonged buying process and have spent the time doing it up, massively helped out by my Mum and Dad who have been absolutely fantastic. They have put up with us living with them for 18 months and have just worked so hard to help us get the house ready. We are deeply indebted to them (in many ways if you ask Dad!)

Of course the biggest change to our lives, and something that has taken most of the year to prepare has been the arrival of The Little Mister. I’ve made no secret over the year that we required assistance to help us conceive and I am massively grateful to the doctors who treated us.

The best presentThe Little Mister arrived on 14 December 2012 and he is absolutely wonderful. Better than I could ever have hoped for and the wait has been well worth it. I feel deeply for those people who shared my journey and experiences of struggling to conceive and I hope and pray that they will be successful in the coming year. I remember only too well how hard it is to hear other people’s news about their pregnancies or births and being disappointed and devastated. I still think of them often.

I end 2012 extremely grateful for what I have. The Mister has continued to be amazing and seeing him with The Little Mister has made me love him even more. We are blessed beyond all measure and very, very grateful. Thankyou to everyone who has continued to read this blog over the year, I have appreciated your comments and hope that you will continue to share the story with us.


2012 Project365 (Day 352)

The nappy ChangerThe Mister has been absolutely brilliant all the way through my pregnancy and especially since The Little Mister was born.

He has been particularly splendid when it comes to night-time nappy changes and there have been some truly revolting ‘gifts’. I love hearing The Mister’s running commentary when he is getting The Little Mister changed. It is so sweet!

As I seem to spend quite a bit of time breastfeeding it is only fair that The Mister gets to help me out in other ways! He is a superstar and this experience would be so much harder without him!

2012 Project365 (Day 334)

CuddlesHurray! I have made it to the end of work and now I have a couple of weeks holiday and then I go on maternity leave! I have to admit that it was odd and a little bit sad to leave work.

Now, I am knackered. I hope I get a bit of a chance to rest before he makes an appearance, and yet I would like him to arrive as soon as possible! Here is The Mister practising his baby cuddling skills with Billy.

2012 Project365 (Day 299)

Baby catMonday’s are becoming the day that I have to find an emergency photo because I have been really busy and I am often tired! As usual if I need one I resort of taking pictures of cats!

I think The Mister is practising his baby holding skills with Billy the cat. Admittedly Billy seems quite happy lying back and relaxing in The Mister’s arms and he will lie here quite contentedly for some time. Silly creature!

Wedding Anniversary weekend

Last weekend The Mister and I went to Pickering for a short break. We stayed in a lovely bed and breakfast called Grindale House which was lovely and comfortable with a fab breakfast. Best of all it was very central so we could leave the car and wander for the weekend.

On Friday night we went out for a fabulous meal at Castlegate Taberna and had the best tapas I have ever had. It was truly delicious and freshly cooked. On Saturday we had a wander around Pickering Castle, a quick visit to the North York Moors Railway and then we went to St Peter & St Paul Church which was the highlight for me. It has the most astonishing medieval paintings on the wall. They are so clear and really striking and well worth a visit if you are ever in the area. On Saturday evening we went out for dinner at The White Swan – the meal was fabulous. However, it was very expensive and I decided it wasn’t twice as good as the tapas meal which was half the price! Mind you, I did enjoy the champagne!

We had such a nice weekend. I suddenly realised how knackered I am though and when I am at home I am always busy, whether it be cooking, cleaning or sewing. Suddenly having a weekend off meant I was shattered so I had the most blissful sleep on Saturday afternoon.

The best bit though was I got to spent time with The Mister. Time which we both need, and it was lovely!
