Its been a whirlwind, so I took the weekend and had a minibreak for my birthday. I didn’t feel comfortable being too far away, so a quick weekend to visit my best friend was a nice break. I’m
thankful that Mark has no problem having both kids and that Claire has been at her best.
I found celebrating my birthday extremely hard, it’s a time of reflection and its hard to think about this new life we live. Its not possible to stay positive and hopeful all the time, though we try our best.
We did manage to go out and have a great meal together with family and had birthday cake. There is nothing that makes Claire and Josef happier then blowing out birthday candles after singing Happy Birthday.
