So, I had a break. I needed it and it felt good. There were times I felt desperate to jump back online and write endless posts about my beautiful girl, but I didn’t. There were nights when Trev was away and Iris wouldn’t sleep, and nights when Trev was away and Iris did sleep but I couldn’t. It was lonely. But I focussed on my family and that felt good.
I feel a bit like Spring is here at long last. The daffodils are peeking and the hyacinth in my kitchen window smells wonderful.
Today Iris was struggling with her first tooth moving around, and I couldn’t cheer her up. So we went to the swings! I thought she’d be scared but she loved it! I sat on the ground pushing her, enjoying the warm sunshine and her sweet laughter. Knowing that I can soon ditch socks and warm hats makes me happy. We have a whole summer ahead for going to the beach and taking long mountain walks. In fact we booked a camping trip today. I’m happy and excited.
