It’s been a while since I last updated, because I really haven’t know what to write. The odd thing is, it’s not as if nothing has been going on either; loads of stuff has happened.
My niece turned two on November 7th. We travelled down to my sisters in Kent, the weekend before her birthday, to spend some time with her and give her the presents that we bought.
While down in Kent, my sister asked me to try and get some photos of her and her new boyfriend, Jake. The entire family ventured out to Leybourne Lake Country Park for the afternoon; it was absolutely freezing! I did however, manage to get a nice shot of them both.
On the Sunday, the slight cold that I had for a couple of days, decided to take a turn for the worse. I started to have hallucinations and ran a really high temperature. One minute I’m boiling, the next I’m freezing cold. It was horrendous. Thankfully, I started to feel better to drive home on the Monday evening. We finally made it home at just gone 1am.
The following week, 14 November, it was Ryan’s birthday; he’s now seven years old. We had a set budget of £200 for his birthday. That £200 would pay for some presents, a trip to the zoo, a movie at the cinema, dinner, a birthday cake and celebrations with his cousins and aunts. for a seven year-old, he does pretty damn well out of us!
When I go any where significant, I like to take my camera. Going down to my mums for my nieces Christening was going to be no exception. unfortunately as I was in the Christening I was going to be unable to grab any photos of the event, but I did get a load of photos of the train journey to and from there.
I had my Mum down on the Saturday just gone to see Chloe. We were all ill on the weekend of Chloe’s birthday so they were unable to come down. While they were here, we decided to get some photos of us all over at the park. I have picked the best of them and put them below.
Obviously it isn’t April 23rd, but because I have been so busy and haven’t had access to my computer, I haven’t been able to upload any photos or anything. I have finally got approval from my family to let me upload these photos from that day!
April 23rd is significant to me in two ways. It’s my 8th anniversary with Kate and my Mums 56th birthday. I’m not really going to go into detail with what we all did that day, I am just going to let the photos below tell the story.
When my sister came to visit me last week, she forgot her camera, but when my Mum came to pick her up, she managed to bring it with her. While Christina was out in town with Ryan, I managed to sneek a look and grab some pictures before she got back!
Below you can see the result of my time with the camera.
I should have written this earlier but have been busy spending a lot of my time with my family. Christmas went well, got drunk, had the “Christmas dinner”, presents and fun. I’m not going to drone on about it all because it will get all so boring, so its going to be told in picture form!
If you haven’t guessed, this post is going to be pretty long, so I have cut it off at the first image on the home page, so if you want to view the full post, click read more below.
The guitar that Chloé for for Christmas from Auntie Christina
Well, as you might have guessed my sister went into labour on the Saturday morning / Friday night. We got her to the hospital on Saturday evening as her pains wernt that bad, well, bad enough to say that the baby is coming! Got to the hospital at around 6 – 7pm and they checked her over and said that she was definately in the beginnings of labour. They didn’t want to keep her in so they sent her home!
From around 10pm Christina’s pains got a lot worse, to the point that she needed one of us there the entire time. My mum decided that she would stay with her for the night to make sure she was ok. By around 5am I was shouted as my mum couldn’t keep her eyes open and needed to rest.
We phoned the maternity section at the hospital at around 5.30am and they said, if Christina can hold off until around 8am they can send a midwife out to check her over and to see if she had progessed in her labour because her contractions have been only 2 – 3 minutes apart ever since the beginning! 8.10am came and I phoned. The response I got was “Sorry, we don’t send midwives out to women”. I was astonished!
Surely enough, we waited a bit longer and then Christina started to get the urge to push. Well, that was it. I phoned 999 and got an abulance there as soon as possible. We were rushed to hospital and into the maternity ward where Christina was checked over, she had the news she was hoping for, she was 10cm dilated, which ment baby was coming soon!
