This week marked the start of a very busy month!
Yesterday was Mum’s hen night, she get’s married next Saturday! We all went out for an Indian and had a lovely time (:
Came home to find her husband-to-be passed out on the sofa… we woke him up when we came in which resulted in some funny jibberish ‘conversations’.. I think it’s safe to say he had a good stag day…. 😉
The big countdown to Berkay’s arrival is well under way, 3 days til he arrives… I’m not sure he’s really looking forward to it, I’ll be working a lot so he’ll be alone 9-5 during the week, and he always gets so bored because he’s not used to not doing anything and relaxing… when he’s back home he works 7 days a week 15-18 hours a day. It’s all a bit strange to him! Dad says he plans to keep him busy doing the garden and other random bits and pieces around the house so maybe he won’t have time to be bored!
I’ll be stocking up on Nandos sauce and sunflower seeds tomorrow, Berkay’s favourite things 😉 Just can’t wait to go and get him from the airport on Wednesday! It’s come around so quickly when I look back. My little sister will be coming to the airport to get him too, she adores him so can’t wait to see her reaction either (:
I’m off work on Friday so that we can help with some last minute wedding preparations. I have a doctors and opticians appointment in the morning, then off to get a Mother’s day present and wedding present and get Berkay a suit! Talk about leaving it to the last minute. There’s just no time to do anything working 9-5 everyday, I never even appreciated this before.
After the wedding on Saturday, we’re having a Mother’s day lunch with mum and her new husband on Sunday, then it’s back to work for me on Monday. Wednesday 2nd April is my little sister’s 3rd Birthday, and I’m hopefully off work for that, then my birthday is 11th April and I’m off for that… then I’m off on good Friday 18th April, before Berkay goes back to Turkey on Saturday 19th! I told you it’s a busy month! If my holiday days are approved, and what with Easter, I won’t have a full week at work until 28th April…. and then the following Monday is May bank holiday anyway! You have no idea how happy this makes me! (:
Today was busy too, me, mum and my aunt went out for afternoon tea at a nice hotel… who says Essex girls can’t be classy eh? The good was gorgeous and it was good to spend some girly time together before the madness of next weekend’s wedding! We had a selection of sandwiches, ham and mustard, egg and watercress mayonnaise, smoked salmon and cream cheese and cucumber, along with little mini quiches. Then we had jam and clotted cream scones, cream and raspberry horns, macaroons, and huge strawberries, followed by chocolate and raspberry cakes, carrot cakes and a mango moose, all accompanied by an endless supply of tea, I chose the cranberry tea, yum! I felt so stuffed afterwards, and definitely put on a few pounds, I best be on a strict diet this week or my bridesmaid dress won’t fit!
In other news… Last Tuesday our good friend’s baby twins were born. One of the first posts on this blog was about how we went to their house to celebrate, back when she was only 6 weeks pregnant (click HERE to read that post!). Oh how time flies. It made me a little sad really, to see how things are changing without me there. We went to their wedding last May, often went for bbq’s and picnics with them, celebrated with them in their home… and now the babies are here and I’m not there ! It really makes me realise how long I’ve been gone, how much things are changing and how I’m still stuck here in the same position while everyone else is moving on, it really bothers me. Berkay has visited the new babies a few times this week, once in the hospital, check out the hospital room with a sea view! Not bad eh? Lucky babies.
Congratulations to Ela & Samet – little Emre and Emir are adorable and I want lots of hugs when I come back to visit in July! (:
