Self portrait

Ah well, here I am again. How's everyone? I have been thinking of you all and yearning to be wrapped in the warm arms my blog provides me.

Everything is good. I'm good at least. My friend in crisis is still technically in crisis. She has good days and bad days. The weekend was not good as she officially moved out of her ex's place and I was "on call" again, Yesterday though was a good day and we laughed a lot and spoke sensibly. Today she is checking in to the suicide refuge I mentioned before. I have faith in her and I'm proud of how far she's come already.

And that's all I'm going to say about that. And you know why? Because for the last two weeks all I have talked about or though about was her and quite simply, I'm sick of it. I love her, of course, but this blog is my blog and I won't let it take this over as well.

MY life has been fab. Husband is shockingly....amazing. It's like he's finally taking things seriously in regards to a few kinks i think we need to work out in our relationship. He's...GASP, changing. trying. I of course, don't want him to change who he is blahblah you know the story. But there have been things over the last year that I know need fixing, because they are tolerable now but I know they are not something I will tolerate for a life time.

So yes. He's trying. good times.

Son is getting his portrait taken today at Nursery I sent him looking so super cute that the staff gave a little squeal when he walked in. I attempted to gel his fly away hair to no avail but it's cool, he totally rocks the beach bum look. Just like Mummy.

My youngest brother is coming to visit in 3 weeks for his 18th birthday and Christmas. I am so psyched I can't even tell you. Kid brother and I are like sausage and mash, fish and chips, vodka and coke.... Close. I was like his second mum growing up and took him everywhere with me... And now for the first time ever we will be joining forces as adults! Adults... He'll be legal...drinking and all (in the UK at least...hence why he's spending his 18th here). Frozen Margaritas? I think so.

Time to tackle my blog roll! I'll close my totally random and endless update of the going on's in my life here... I should really take part in Tuesday Random Thoughts... I'd rock that so hard.

Oh it sounds like your friend is doing all the right things. You too! You're right to take some time for you, and it sounds like Hubs has been amazing:)

Glad to see you back!

Sometimes being there for a friend can really drain you. Sounds like you have been her rock.

You are going to have endless amounts of fun with your brother!

Excellent news on the husband front. I'm kind of in that situation myself.

I had a friend who took every bit of energy out of me that I had when I was supporting her through a divorce. It was really hard to take.

I've missed you! So sorry to hear about your friend! I'm glad she is starting to move in the right direction.

I had been looking for an excuse to go to the UK for some much needed R&R. Frozen margaritas for your brothers birthday sounds perfect.

Let me tell my au-pair that I am taking my private plane to the UK for a few weeks. (Delusional much?)
