Month 5 (Week 25, Day 5-6) Up The North..(10/11/18) **
Fab weekend up at the in-laws, although wandering around the stunning gardens and staring at the Woodpecker that came into the garden, couldn’t help but feel that we are nearing the end of an era, with the house 🏡 being for sale. Btw in 5 years I don’t think I’ve seen / captured a piccie of a woodpecker (male) - the colours are different to females, so quite exciting. **
Hubs and I also had our first 30 mins on our own, minus the bambino! We went to #snugburys for ice cream, which I absolutely cannot get enough of. Caramel and pecan + Damson & Sloe Gin. 🥰 Andy said to me afters have a mooch around Nantwich, after getting your nails done 💅as he went back to look after Chops. I felt a bit weird on this one, but I said ok. In town, I just had a leather jacket, and two bank cards shoved in my 👖 pockets, no handbag 👜, no pram, no nappy changing bag 💼, no baby 👶🏼 and I felt very uneasy. I went into a couple of shops, but had a nervousness about me, which was anxiety I think. (It’s been a while since my PTSD & Anxiety and I 1000% feel like me again but this made me feel edgy). I realised it’s because for 6 months I’ve been solely a mum, and I’ve forgotten a bit about me. I trust that this is completely normal after you give EVERY bit of you to your baby, and again I trust that bit by bit being on your own, shopping, lunching withe ladies (eating with two hands!!), and all the things I adore I will find (MAKE!!!) some time to do. **
My world 🌍 has changed and I wouldn’t change it for the world 🌎 but you have to allow yourself time to adjust and accept the new normals.
The Sunday lunch above was prepped and cooked by me and I LOVED it! **
Friday night was takeaway 🥡 night with @kit.270 @_jessiesumner , Tim, and the in-laws. Sunday roast was our Saturday night supper and Sunday we met up with our awesome friends for brunch and 2 minutes silence to honour those that gave their life’s. Words fail me sometimes on how incredible these individuals at War were. Lest we forgot.❤️
