Sunday 7 February 2010: "Mr B"
I was going to upload one of the photos I took of Claudia in the bath this morning but the little terror has been fighting sleep and screaming for so long I thought again! Then I looked down at all the junk on my desk and spotted this photo... and thought "that's my blip for today!".
My husband has been away for 2 weeks and is away for another 3 back in the UK and it's days like today, days where I don't have an awful lot to do except slob about, where I miss him the most.
We've done longer stints apart but living over here has meant we haven't spent a night apart in 18 months and it's quite an adjustment to make... But I love him, I miss him and I'm so enormously proud of him.
This photo was taken, it must be 7 years ago, when we were young (well I was) and struggling against the world, or so it seemed at the time... his family were holding a summer BBQ and I remember I was so nervous about seeing them all together for the day that I didn't sleep much the night before and was up at stupid 'o' clock to try and get my hair done. It never goes that nice any more :o)
So here's to Mr B... can't wait until he's home again and our family is complete.
