Hubby’s grandparents arrived from the US on Tuesday evening. He hasn’t seen them properly (apart from brief business trips to the US) for 6 years. They’ve changed a lot… I suppose that will happen as 6 years is a long time.
Yesterday we had then all over for dinner which was wonderful, although I was shattered as I’d been on the go from 6.30am to get ready for it.
Today we have my father-in-law’s ordination ceremony so that’ll be interesting.
I’m always fascinated by Catholic ceremonies as I was brought up CofE but now take the stance that I don’t believe in anything.
After the ceremony we have a sort of reception. I think a lot of it will be spent with Jonny’s grandparents as they won’t know that many people. Will be looking after them which I don’t mind. They’re the only grandparents that Jonny and I have left.
Something else entirely that I’m supremely proud of – my little sister has been told her house will be ready to move into at the end of the month. This is crazy as she’s never lived away from home. But I’m so proud of her. She’s worked so hard and I can’t wait to go and see her in her own house 🙂 she’s so special to me and its only been in the last few years that our sisterly relationship has gone to the next level. I’m so protective of her.
This week has made me realise we need to work harder to get to the US more. Finishing uni, buying a house, our wedding and other people’s weddings have meant that we haven’t had the money to get there. It’ll be a while longer too though as I just got my bfp this morning. Just one month after losing 1st baby, we’re on the crazy journey again. Let’s see if we’re more successful this time…
