Whilst we have not been inundated with guests and flowers at our home like my brother and parents have- thank goodness- we are blessed with the most incredible friends…
Last Sunday Sheena and her Jon popped round for coffee and a bit of a visit.
On Friday (which was a public holiday) I had several cupcake order collections in the morning and then in the afternoon I went to Beagle Momma’s to celebrate her 30th birthday with cupcakes and champagne! It was a wonderful afternoon. I saw several people I haven’t seen in a while and it was glorious to just make casual conversation and laugh at the children’s antics.
On Saturday morning my friend Sweet Stef popped round! A fabulous few hours were spent catching up on each other’s news before she took herself home again.
And on Saturday evening, ExMi and The Jackson Files arrived with their boys, bringing with them meat, wine, bread rolls and tequila! We spent an exceptionally pleasant evening laughing and talking and eating outside with Jackson and the Kid watching DVDs in the lounge.
I am truly blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful people. They know I don’t want to only talk about our family losing Nathan and what happened and such, and they manage to keep my mind off my sadness without making it seem as though they have better things to do! They know its enough to give me a hug and say they’re thinking of us without making a huge t0-d0 about it.
They have succeeded in giving us back a little bit of normality for a while and for that I am eternally grateful.
