The birthdays

Dear chummy

I'm sorry I haven't been here for a day or two but I haven't been very happy. Don't worry I'm not sad, mostly I've been annoyed and angry and frustrated and I don't want this blog to become a series of rants so I wasn't going to go into why I feel like this.

Instead lets talk about birthdays :)

Its Momma's birthday today and after work you'll be coming over to mine so she can open her presents from us before we go out for tea at that Indian place we like.

I love how our family treats birthdays, I don't think you're ever too old to appreciate a good birthday. I love the early morning phone calls to sing happy birthday. Although saying that I just called mum and I didn't sing down the phone at her because she sounded so sleepy, I just whispered to her tehehe.

I love the banners and balloons and cake ... Oh crap, I haven't bought a cake, have you?? I don't think you have or you would have mentioned it yesterday when you were trying to get the self inflating balloons to self inflate.

Ill try and get one after work, I'm sure we've got some candles.

I love the cards and presents and unwrapping and how we always get so excited and appreciate every present even though some of them are just silly cheap things. I love getting dressed up to go out for tea and taking lots of photos. I must remember the camera!! In fact i might bring back the one I've got at work.

Right I'm nearly at work now :( so I'll leave it there and see you later :)

Ciao for now Chummy

The holiday

Dear Chummy
How are you today? I hope you have a good day.

I've been thinking about holidays a lot recently. I really want to go away somewhere warm.
I know I've got stuff to look forward to this year, what with Summer in the City in August and Centre Parcs in December but I am still yearning for a trip abroad - packing a suitcase, going on a plane, going somewhere warm and all that stuff.

I'm jealous that you've got a holiday booked, though I know I'm way too old and boring for a week in Magaluf / Megafluff / shagascruff.

I keep thinking about Turkey and how nice the hotel was and I visualise myself just walking around the pool, in one of your floaty dresses that I borrowed, feeling the warm tiles under my feet, grabbing a fanta from the pool bar, sitting on a lounger in the sun reading a good book with my lovely hubby laid next to me and occasionally getting up to eat at the massive buffet (mostly pasta and bread as you can imagine). Ohhhh it was so lovely. Can I go back?

Going away in the UK just isn't the same as being abroad somewhere. I know I've always said that I'd choose Center Parcs over anywhere else in the world but now I think I just want some sun. Especially today as I make my way to work in the dreary, foggy, grey UK weather.

Ciao for now Chummy xx
