I have a very supportive partner in Matt. Matt has a great family around him, many of whom I have met as they live locally. I have been welcomed into his family with open arms.
I don’t have that family unit. I don’t think I ever really did. My dad lives in Malta and I haven’t spoken to my mum for many years. I have my older sister Ursula – she lives in London – we are very close.
On Friday, Matt and I attended a wedding where I met Matt’s family again. It was a beautiful day. A day spent celebrating two people, Jenny and James, coming together. We laughed, we danced, we sang, we were silly, we shared stories with others, we threw confetti and had a wonderful time. I smiled, I was happy – Matt smiled, he was happy.
No swimming, biking or running.
Today, we had planned to go for a cycle – we didn’t.
It’s the first weekend in many months, that we haven’t gotten up early to get the long bike ride in, or head to the lake for the swim. Did I miss it. No.
Instead, we walked. We walked Percy, our dog. We walked for a long time. Just talking. Talking about anything. I think I did most of the talking.
It was lovely.
We ate cake and had a cup of tea.
My lovely neighbours bought me a nice box of chocolates.
We have nothing planned for tomorrow. Just taking each day as it comes.
I love Matt
