So, when are you going to have kids?
I get asked that, a lot. It’s gotten old and annoys me to no end. I always want to reply with “What’s it to YOU? Mind your own bloody business, thanks.”
This past weekend we had my brother-in-law, his fiance and our 2 nieces and 3 month old nephew stay with us! It was absolutely lovely and really nice to have the house full of people. The last time we had that many people in it was when we were married and everyone was over from the States 4 years ago! Our nephew, Roman, is an absolute angel. He’s incredibly adorable and you forget he’s there, he’s so quiet! The girls are more lively, of course, but it was nice to have them there and see everyone. It was also nice to see them go, but only because we were so exhausted! I had a very hard time dragging myself out of bed this morning.
Getting to cuddle Roman was lovely and as much as I loved it, I am happy enough to give him back and content with the knowledge that I’m not ultimately responsible for him. I’m still unwavering in my current decision to not have kids for a while. I have to say, it’s nice knowing exactly what I want, or don’t want in this case, and that I am happy with that decision. I was a tiny bit worried about my decision changing after spending the weekend with them.
Now, in completely un-kid-related news….. I ran for 20 minutes non stop on Friday night!!!!!! And now that I’m able to do that I’m continuing with it. So in 3 weeks time I will be running for 30 minutes I hope. I am immensely proud of myself. 😀
