Could it be?

Today we had sun! A fair bit of it too, it was actually warm – well warmish. Could this be Spring? We played in the garden in t-shirts! I think I’m in shock. I really really hope it stays, it makes me feel alive again. I need warmth to function! Must have been a lizard in a past life or something… Seriously though, everything is better when the sun is shining. Isn’t it?


Yay for sun!


My little boy

Today my baby, you’re another year older.

Five years now since I held you that very first time.

I never imagined then how we’d be, how you’d be.

A few months before then I’d never imagined you, I’d never even considered having a child, never imagined myself as a mother, but there you were.

And never have I looked back.

From the moment I knew I was carrying you I loved you.

I loved you more than I’d ever loved anything in my entire life. I didn’t know what true love was until I loved you.

I’ve watched you grow year after year, in body and in mind.

You are a very curious but caring little soul.

You are so gentle, so kind and yet so strong.

You still believe that a cuddle from mummy will right all the wrongs in the world, you still believe in me. You believe in me even when I don’t.

You are my rock.

You are my calm.

You are my everything.

My perfect little man.

Happy 5th birthday, I love you back to the stars!
