Holidays are over

Phew, we made it out the other side guys. That was intense, but we made it. What did you get? I got some awesome mugs, no joke, I love mugs though. Some cool pop culture T-shirt’s in the right size (XL)? Computer games oh and a BIRD HOUSE. I’ve not gone into this properly yet but I love birds. I know what you’re thinking “the feather kind?” And yes. But also the other type too 😉 lol.

I feel like I survived that holidays but it’s still a sad and difficult time. Nanna died two years again and we lost my grandad six months ago today. I miss my grandparents a lot. They were so cool and spawned my whole family. They met totally out of chance, if it weren’t for a fortuitous coin toss I may not be here.

Back in the 50’s my grandad was out in Blackpool with his mates and were either going to go to Winter Gardens or Tower Ball room to go dancing. They flipped a coin. Went to tower ball room. And that was the night he met my Nanna. How cool is that? The lives of dozens of us (my family is large) all came down to a single coin toss. It blows my mind every time I think about it.

My birthday soon and I can’t believe I am going to be 35. I used to think people at this age were so mature, knew what they were doing. How wrong I was. I still feel really young too. I feel like I am 10 years younger. Wonder if I’ll ever feel my age. What do you guys think?

I love chance and stuff like that. Do you have any similar stories from your family were one moment changed everything?  Let me know.

this is them xxxx
