Enjoying The Moment

It's been a busy few weeks and this week I have:

My nephew's 18th birthday - he was born the day my adorable and much missed grandmother died - which was also the day I held a party for my sister's 17th birthday. That was definitely a day filled with mixed emotions.

My ex brother-in-law's 40th birthday - Great chap. I shan't be going to his party, but my daughter will be. He's been in hospital for the past 7 weeks after an horrific motorbike accident and it's a relief that he's able to celebrate this birthday.

My sister's birthday: Happy Birthday Rach.x

My father's 40th anniversary of his plane crash - I'm always so grateful things didn't turn out differently and that I've had all these wonderful years with him.

There are many other things going on this week too, but for now, I'm going to sit back and relax. Time to catch up with some reading and enjoy the weekend before it's over.

Rather belated congrats for your new job and hope you enjoy your week, it sounds exhausting but with exam work out of the way I'm sure you will enjoy yourself.
