I’ve been away for a while because i’d fallen victim to the dreaded bloggers block, the internet was also down but that’s no excuse. However, i’m back and so is my mojo and i’m so glad I get to start back again today. My casual Monday posts are my favourite because I just get to talk to you, and I know it’s lame because sometimes you might not care too much but for me it’s exciting to share my little bubble.
I don’t know what it is about September but everyone’s birthday seem’s to be within this month. I’m not complaining, birthdays are my favourite. I love buying gifts for other people, I love sharing the love and making people so important. If you read my blog back in May, you’ll know how much of a fuss I made out of George’s birthday! You can read that ‘here‘ if you haven’t already…
I mentioned in my last post (things I’d tell my teenage self) that my baby brother is starting college, which is a scary thought because I still think of him as the 2 year old with blonde curls who asks me to build his railroad for Thomas the Tank. But last week he turned 17! Meaning the 2 year old, dressed in footed onesies and paired with his Lala Teletubby is legally allowed to learn to drive. The fact that he is big enough to control a moving vehicle made me realise that he’s not my baby brother anymore and he has so much more potential going for him than I ever did at that age. I mean, I turned 21 last November and didn’t pass my drivers test until 2 months after that! I still feel like a new driver even though I have been legally allowed on the road (with a person over 21 and 3 years experience) for 4 years! So the thought that someone I still think of as so little and care so much about, on the road and in the big wide world is pretty scary. None-the-less, what did I buy him as a gift for his birthday? Driving lessons, way to throw myself into a world that I’m not ready to live in yet! I guess i’ve got to get to grips with him being almost a man now. Wow, that sounds dorky and weird but cool all at the same time.
