Anyway, last Tuesday I found out I had made it through to the finals of the Mad Blog Awards which was very exciting. I actually got a tweet alert on my mobile phone whilst my Mum & Dad were sat in my lounge. I nervously pretended I needed to check my bank account online (my parents aren't aware of my blog) and there it was staring back at me. I got all giddy, may have actually wee'd a little and couldn't really speak.
Then, Wednesday it was our 4th wedding anniversary. My parents had given us a voucher for a 2 night hotel break for Christmas so we decided to use it over our anniversary. Did we choose a romantic retreat and pack Mini Cheddar off to my parents? No, we went to Hampshire and took Mini Cheddar to Peppa Pig World. Not romantic but lots of fun.
As Mini Cheddar slept in a bed when we were away and coped great with it, we decided when we returned that is was the time to convert her cot into a bed.
We did it on Saturday.
I thought I'd be okay with it. I was actually really excited about it.
I gained a few more grey hairs trying to stop her running off with the screw drivers and allen keys to antagonise the poor dog.
Then, when it was complete and made up, I saw her climb up onto it and sit there playing happily. I felt a pang of something I couldn't quite put my finger on. I'm guessing it's exactly the same emotion I felt when I dropped her school application form off the other week.
My baby has finally turned into a proper little girl. I honestly can't quite explain what I'm feeling over it at the moment.
Incidentally, Saturday was also the first day she asked me put bunches and slides in her hair.
So yes, Saturday was a big day for a number of reasons...
There goes our holiday spending money... so come on ash cloud, do your worst!
