February 18 Round Up

Another busy month, but thankfully not as manic as January.

Ella is still a major cause of worry for us. More meetings. More decisions. But not enough action. But I've got a huge update about that early next month and I cannot go over old ground, we just prayer daily for a glimpse of our girl - as Jeff says, the Ella at the moment is not our little girl :(

New job still going well. Another meeting in London feeling important again - although I don't think I need to go again, so not so important after all LOL! Also working periodically at a second location - and even though the journey is a bit of a rush-hour pain, it's worth it to see this view in the morning :)

We had a fosterling move onto adoption. That was a new experience, but we have been the other side of it when we adopted Ella so had a good idea of the process. Made her a scrapbook album with a lot of journalling, as we found we had huge gaps in Ella's early years before we adopted her.

Another trip to Hampton Court Palace :) Both times recently we've found areas we've never seen in all the previous visits. I don't know what it is about the place, just enjoy visiting it so much - wonder if I lived there in a previous life? If I did it wouldn't have been as one of Henry VIII's wives as I get good vibes from it, which wasn't the emotions most of his wives had LOL!

World Cancer Day, bought this wristband and have worn it every day since.

One thing I don't get to treat myself to as often as I would like, or probably need, is a trip to the hairdressers. Last time was August before we went to America. Walked into a new salon as my old one had closed and they had just that minute had a cancellation. I have a couple of thinning spots - love this growing old lark! - so thought a slight change might mask it for a while, hello fringe! I must admit I spent all evening looking in the mirror, and think it actually makes me look a little younger, which is always a bonus :)

What else?

Trip to A&E with a fosterling
Went to see Wicked at the Apollo Theatre in London - even Jeff liked it and he is not really (to put it mildly) into musical theatre
Went to see The Greatest Showman with my BFF :)
Went to see The Greatest Showman with our God-daughter for her birthday - and made Jeff go to see that too ;)
And on Valentine's day Jeff and I actually got to go out for a meal, just the 2 of us. Flashback to last year when we went with 3 children in tow LOL!
Went to the Enchanted Fair which is very steampunk - goth - pagan - folky - alternative. Although Jeff made me laugh when he made a comment about how everyone is trying to show their individuality by wearing the same alternative clothing LMAO!
Went down to Dad and Sandra's
Got a phone call at 6am from mum cos she had had a fall. Jeff rushed straight round there to be the dutiful son-in-law. Thankfully no serious damage.
Back to London again for meetings for work. So still feeling all important ...... no more meetings now so the self-importance feelings will soon fade :)

Geez, no wonder we're so knackered!!!


  1. Funny what Jeff said about the steampunk people. That exact thought occurred to me in the early 80s when I was super into punk rock. Here we were saying we were individuals and being ourselves and we all had the same 'uniform' on. The pins, army jackets, coloured hair, wild makeup....I liked dressing that way sometimes but not all the time and then I just realized I can be myself and still be really into the music and that was more 'punk rock' than wearing all the stuff that wasn't as comfortable as a tshirt and sweats.


Love to hear from you. Please leave your thoughts below. Suzanne xx
