1. Last night, listening to the sweet hum of my brand new dryer. Warm, soft clothes in just 20 minutes! Hello, modern technology... I love you.
2. A delicious bowl of yogurt, raspberries and walnuts, with some homemade pancakes on the side. Mmmm.
3. Sawyer said to me this morning, "Mummy, come here. I want to kiss you!" Oh, how it made me smile.
We're looking forward to Alan's birthday tomorrow. Dylan is especially excited. He starts each day saying something like this~ "How many days until Dad's birthday, Mum? Two. That's how many!" It's so cute. We went shopping on the weekend and picked up some fun gifts (that's all I'll say for now in case you-know-who is reading this!) The boys have wrapped Daddy's presents (with much, much too much tape!) and tonight we are baking a chocolate layer cake. We've got my parents, Wade, Laura and wee Juliette coming over tomorrow evening to help us celebrate with dinner from The Noodle Box (yum!) and the aforementioned cake (double yum with chocolate icing on top!)What a difference from a year ago when Alan had only just been hit by that van, was on heavy pain medication, using crutches and was off work indefinitely. Our days consisted of one appointment after another and I was struggling to do everything on my own. It was awful, for all of us. Thank goodness that things have improved since then, and that (hopefully) they will continue to improve as he carries on with his rehabilitation. And how nice for Alan that he doesn't have to be drugged up to enjoy his own birthday party! It all adds up to BT #4...
2010. So far, so good.
