I’ve seen quite a few of these posts flying around recently and always thought it was a nice idea – having your life shown in front of you. It encourages you to think outside of the box and of the little things you often forget about.
I thought it would be pretty easy but after a few hours, I was still stuck on certain letters. Nevertheless, I’ve done it. Feel free to join in!
A is for S’s pride and joy, her tropical fish tank (or Aquarium). We’ve had it for a few years now after treating ourselves and to this day I still look at it to calm me down.
B is for Blogging! Initially started just to document our TTC process so we could read back on our journey, we had no idea what it would become. We’ve shared new experiences and made new friends. We’re so glad we started blogging.
C is for Coffee and Chocolate. ‘Nuff said.
D is for dog Oscar, our beautiful dog and first boy. He’s recently had his nose put out of joint what with T taking up our time but he’s adapted well and he’s generally happy as long as I can throw the occasional ball.
E represents S’s surname and how I’ve proudly changed my surname to hers recently.
F is for Family. We love our families dearly and couldn’t live without them.
G is for Gaydar, where S and I met many moons ago.
H is for home. It really is where the heart is. It’s my favourite place on earth.
I is for the Internet. I’d like to say I could live without it, but I couldn’t. Over the years I’ve made friends and found love because of the Internet, not to mention settle plenty of arguments by being able to quickly google it.
J is for July, the month we found out we were pregnant. Apart from getting married, it was the happiest moment of my life.
K is for Kinesiology. Our Kinesiologist fixed me after two years of TTC. We cannot thank her enough.
L is for Lie-ins, something of a distant memory. Even when T sleeps a bit longer I still end up waking at 6am.
M is for our nephew. Now two years old, he’s growing into a very funny little boy with tons of character.
N is for the NHS. I received an amazing service during pregnancy, birth, and after birth and I am very lucky to have access to such amazing people.
O is for OCD. It’s a huge, unwelcome part of my life and has been a wall I’ve been slowly demolishing over the years. Having a newborn hasn’t made it any easier to deal with but it’s certainly removed a few bricks at once.
P is for photography. We must take at least a dozen photos a day, if not more at weekends. With both S and I having our own cameras, as well as our phones, we’re always generally armed with a camera to capture our moments.
Q is for Queer… And proud of it.
R is for reading, something I rarely have time for. I can’t wait to start reading bedtime stories to T.
S is for Sussex. Our hometown is Brighton but we love visiting other towns within Sussex including; Lewes, Arundel, and Rye.
T is somewhat predictable. But Yes. But T is simply dedicated to our son.
U is for Uniform. I wear one for work and enjoy not having to choose something to wear every day.
V is for my VW Golf. It’s taken us on all our holidays and has been a very hardworking car. It’s part of the family.
W is for the West Country. Cornwall being our favourite, we absolutely love the West Country.
X is for Xenophobia and other acts of hate. It’s not welcome or necessary in this world.
Y is for yawning – something we all do a lot of lately!
Z is for the Zoo, probably one of my favourite places to go as a child.
