Two Days Of Goodness

Posted in: Family

11th June 2016 (8)

We have had two days of goodness over here thanks to today’s public holiday. Andrew only gets Sundays off as he works on Saturdays so it was our first two day weekend in forever. Thomas has discovered the joys of the playground and we have been spending most mornings there but it’s much sweeter when Andrew can come with us. We have found a great playground that allows dogs to be off lead in the play area so it’s a win-win for everyone.

I don’t know if it’s just me but do you ever look at your life and think ‘I can’t believe this is my life’. I had one of those moments today when we were walking up a hill and I was a million miles behind Andrew, Thomas and Toby thanks to this big load I’m carrying. When I finally reached everyone I said to Andrew, ‘Can you believe this is our life, that we will have two kids soon.’ As someone who never wanted to be a mother it sometimes blows my mind that I have kids. Andrew said, ‘I also had one of those moments the other day when I was pulling out teeth. I thought, I can’t believe I make a living by pulling out people’s teeth. I never thought that would be my job.’

It’s funny where life takes you. When I was younger I just wanted to work and travel the world with Andrew as much as possible and just ‘be free.’ And Andrew never wanted to be a dentist, he kind of just fell into it. But after living those lives for a while we realised we wanted different things. Our lives remind me of a John Lennon quote ‘Life is what happens when you are making other plans’. We may have started on different paths, and we don’t know where we’ll end up, but I’m happy and content with where we are heading, wherever that may be.

This weekend was a little glimpse into the future, the far away future where we will be able spend more than one day a week together as a family. Andrew only has 1.5 years left of Uni before he’s an Intern and then hopefully that will (maybe) give us some weekends back. Cannot wait!

Below are some photos from our weekend, it was a good one. Have a great week, everyone.
