We've been saving this bottle of bubbly for over a year now. Waiting for something to celebrate. We're normally rubbish at celebrating.
I'd like us to celebrate the little things more often. I guess it's another way of being grateful.
Graeme's just negotiated a four-day week and we're over the moon. A long weekend every week. Four days, not five, of doing the boys' breakfast, lunch and dinner on my own. Bedtime hour shared over three nights, not two....
OK, I'm sure you've definitely got it now. (Sure?)
Seriously though, I can hardly believe it. So we reckoned it was time to pop that cork.
Especially as there was something else to celebrate. Except I can't tell you about it.
The first time I wrote about it, I jinxed it and it didn't happen again.
Then when I mentioned it again, it stopped.
So I'm not even going to write the words. In fact, Graeme and I have learnt not to talk about it all. I have a funny way of changing the course of events when I talk about them. And write about them, it seems.
So, we're just celebrating more time together at home, and something else.
To do with a little boy.
There I go again.
