- Don’t they take you by surprise sometimes? 💖💖💖 We’ve been talking a lot about families and spent today with one of my sisters. Tonight, Eden asked me “where is your mum?” 💖💖💖 We’ve spoken about mum a few times, so I told her again that my mum died a long time ago. We try to be as honest as we can about these things. For the first time, Eden had MANY questions. Obviously I only answered them in a way that was appropriate (she was poorly etc etc) but this was the first time she’s been truly interested. 💖💖💖 Mum has been on my mind a lot recently as I’ve recently given a blood sample to be tested for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. My mum died of ovarian cancer at the age of 41, which means there is a risk that it could have been a genetic cancer. I have about an eight to ten week wait to find out my results on this one and Aiden and I have spoken about it a bit. 💖💖💖 At the end of mine and Eden’s conversation she sat quietly for a moment before sighing and saying... “I wish your mum didn’t die.” 💖💖💖 I told her that I wish too, but I know she would have been so happy to meet Eden. 💖💖💖These weeks are my least favourite. 🌸🌸🌸 Monday to Friday this week, Aiden and I have been like passing ships. He’s working early shifts and I’m working late shifts. 🌸🌸🌸 Eden goes to the childminder Monday and Tuesday, so no issue there, but for the rest of the week I have to drag her sorry butt into London with me. My shift starts about 15 minutes after Aiden’s finishes. So it’s a case of meet, swap child, run to work. 🌸🌸🌸 Eden HATES it. She’s too young to understand why we work. She just knows she gets passed around like a hot potato. I’m thankful that we can make it work, but at the same time it’s stressful because she will often say she doesn’t want us to go to work. 🌸🌸🌸 For me, it’s about making tracks for better things, but I still feel like I miss out on a bit. Eden gets a bad case of the grumps as well. 🌸🌸🌸 One day left! Then I’m off the weekend.It’s the little things that bring the most joy 😍
