Today is a good day, the best kind of day, today is a day I’ve been waiting for and excited about but also one that has come round quickly and without too much clock watching.
Today my use returns, no longer am I free to walk miles before and after work at my will, eating late and sneaking in trips to the chip shop. No more lie ins on a work day and quickly throwing some lunch in a bag on my way out of the door. From today games night at friend’s houses with lots of prosecco and giggles will no longer be able to happen on a school night without the need for a babysitter and the fog that descends the next day will once again affect someone else. From this evening the dog will no longer be sleeping facing the front door because she knows there is someone missing and she is waiting for them to come home. My time will be shortened in the mornings and taken up by reading and homework in the evenings. School uniform will need to be prepared, baths and hair washes scheduled in. Bed time stories will once again be a thing and that school backpack will see the light of day after 2 weeks stored in the cupboard. Hair styles will need to be planned and executed daily and packed lunches planned. Time to catch up on that series I’ve been wanting to watch for 3 weeks, gone. Extra time to prepare for the car boot sale we are doing Sunday, forget it. Time to spend my Saturday evening watching something that isn’t Britain’s got talent, not a chance.
All this because today my T is home and I get to kiss that little face again! To be called Mummy and be needed morning and night by this person sometimes just for a cuddle! To be able to tuck her in at night and wake her up in the mornings, get her ready for school and help her learn when she gets home. To spend the weekend playing and the evenings watching trash tv while snuggled on the sofa. To hold that little hand again and have my baby girl back that is why today is a happy day. 💜
