I was planning on announcing the winner of the name my caravan comp tonight.
As I explained, I was leaving this very important decision to my boys of three, but alas, 2 of them have bodged off to watch the footie (City of course).
If it is ok with you all I will announce tomorrow when I have had the chance to share all the names with them. If I leave it to Littlest he will defo pick Chipper Nellys choice of willy!!
Anyhows, this got me to thinking about my boys and how proud I am of them and I thought I should tell you for why and explain our family in a bit more detail.
8 years ago I was a single mum and had been so for quite sometime.
Obviously I had had a lot of dates and admirers........NOT
I split from the father of my 'big boy's when they were very young, 4 and 1 to be precise. As you can imagine, it was not easy but thank god I have been blessed with rather amazing children.
When I met Mr Betty I was 31 and he was only 20.....yeah, yeah, comments welcome!
Mr Betty was my lodger (for about 2 weeks) before we fell for each other.
I was well aware of the risks of entering into a relationship with a big age gap and lots of baggage (all my bags of course) but we went for it anyway. I don't understand how one can be sensible when hit by love??
I have to say that my boys were fantastic and accepted Mr Betty into their lives without any issue.
We quickly and smoothly became a new family unit.
It was not long before littlest arrived. We didn't waste much time if you know what I mean!
And he was accepted by the big boys without issue too. Mind you, he is a lot cuter than the Mr!
So we have now been a family for 8 years. Littlest is now 6, Middling is 14,Eldest will be 17 next month.
Mr Betty is still in his 20's and I am just about clinging on to my 30's.
I just want to say thank you to Mr Betty for completing my life and our family and to my big boys for being amazing, resilient,loving and accepting children/young adults.
I am very lucky. X
COME ON CITY!!
