this day

This day.  1994.   ‘Yes’ the answer.  ‘Will you be my girlfriend?’ the question.
And the rest as they say is history.
It all began with shy glances across the room at a birthday party. Followed by a date to see Rebel without a Cause at the local Picture House. A mix tape made for an anxious train journey. Her postcard. His note though the door to welcome her back.
Love in the 90s was punctuated with handwritten letters, fish finger sandwiches and entire days spent listening to music and talking. Love in 2014 is photos of their son sent between phones to brighten work days. Talking in the dark after midnight when an entire day has passed with barely a glimpse of each other. Smiling silently at one another as their son plays on the floor between them. 20 years on, with a new understanding of what it means to make each other happy, love is counting their blessings and still enjoying the occasional fish finger sandwich!

    re your “Rebel without a cause”; one of the smartest decisions in his life when he decided you were a good cause.

Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)
#motherhood #70thbirthdaygift Roadies.  When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!

#welovelego #unpluggedchildhood #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog November 2011 on an unbelievably sunny day, with an allotment flourishing with green manure plants and an enormous 7 month bump.  As you can imagine I didn't get much gardening done that day!  Seems crazy how quickly the years have gone, our bump will be 6 next week!
