Turning 35 and What I have learnt this last year


Today I turn 35.

I wanted to mark today here on the blog and I thought I would recap the year from being 34 to turning to 35.
I was 34 when I first met my sister. The meeting went well; we got on, had lots in common and have met since. The strangest thing for me is being around someone who looks like me when I haven’t for 34 years! I have always had people remark how much I look like my brother or my Mum (Adopted) but it has always been easy to dismiss it as “characteristics and expressions” rather than likeness by knowing the truth that we looked nothing alike.

My Little Chef - Cheese Straw Trees

 
As regular readers of the blog know, William is a budding and exceedingly ambitious chef and baker.
 
Although he cooks regularly here he also is in competition with himself to create, explore and make something more complicated and ultimately growing his skills. I don't necessarily see this as a bad thing; in fact, as long as he doesn't get upset I am more than happy to push him if he is willing!
 
As many of you know, we attend church most weeks and enjoy the community aspect that it offers. Every year we celebrate a lovely Harvest festival service and we concentrate on sharing with each other, our church communities and with the local community. William, each year, has been keen to be creative and share his skills.

I am so tired!



I am so tired.

I am so drained.
I am so tired.

I may have said tired twice but I am sure repetition is a sign of tiredness so am sure you will let me off! You will have to also forgive this post that I suspect is a little ranty and moany but it is needed.
I am currently juggling what seems like everything and not seemingly getting a break.
