I woke up this morning to J getting into our bed. I knew Carly was downstairs and thought with her being a mama of 3 I should leave her to have a lie in. So we all snuggled and went back to sleep after J had eaten his breakfast.
When I awoke again I went downstairs to a fully dressed Carly sitting in the quiet haha! When I asked her the time it was a whopping 11.20. I asked why she didn’t wake me up and she said she had been enjoying the quiet with my cat (yes I told your secret) and that’s why she hadn’t even bothered to put the TV on.
We got into my Dorie car and before delivering Carly home to her family I picked up my big boy who stayed at his uncle’s last night. He always comes home full of energy and happy memories after being there.
Carrying Carly’s goody bags into the car and seeing how excited her mini’s were for their presents was so sweet.
Me and Kylie drove home listening the the R&B version of head, shoulders, knees and toes whilst him telling me how his little cousin is also his little friend. I am so lucky to have such a beautifully loving big boy.
Arriving home J had his new Scooby dvd in his hand, and Ky’s dad said he would take him to go and watch the new captain America.
Whilst they were at the cinema and out and about, J and I watched Scooby 3 times. All whilst having the biggest, warmest cuddles and eating sweets.
I have been feeling a bit like I have been hit by a bus today. So tired, I dealt with being around so many people this weekend along with 2 long drives to and from there. What an absolute bad ass I am!
Andy and Ky came home with PIZZA. Yay for pizza.
It was then I received messages that made me realise I am on the next step of my
It was then I received the messages that allowed me to know that I have made such a huge step forward in my mental health. That I am okay with my feels and who I am.
I wrote this on Facebook that sums up how I feel about this situation:
Be Less Bitter and More Glitter! Don’t hold your breath with your expectations for others and be your own safety net. I’m no longer upset because others want me to be. I’m keeping in my own lane of happy and even if I need to over take or move to the slow lane so others can go past me I am okay with that! Because this is my journey. I love being me!!!
