Spidey’s Serene Sundays – Part 61


“Family is the most important thing in the world.” – Princess Diana

A fitting one for me today, thanks Spidey!

The last 2 months have been a fun, crazy, exciting, yet tiring time, as my in-laws have been out of the country.

It’s been like being our own little family of 4, with no other commitments to anyone else. Usually, we go to them every day, eat with them at least 5 times a week, and they help me with my children, picking them up from school as I stay later, to do my planning.

But for two months, it has been different. No rushing to other places, being able to get home straight from work, eating what we please, running plans past anyone…

Though it has been tough too. I pay through the teeth for extra after-school care for the kids, I can’t spend as long as I need at school, instead rushing home to make sure they are fed.

My mother-in-law is an angel though. She cooked kid friendly curries, and froze them in portion pots so I could at least make kids food quickly after school!

But tonight they are back!

Much as I love my total independence, I miss them far too much for them to be gone any longer! It’s not just for selfish reasons. Yes, our routine will get back to normal, and I will get lots of help, but also I will get my second mother back, so there is someone there to talk to, ask advice of, and the kids get their grandparents back too!

Family is so important, your own, as well as your in-laws, after all, they are the ones that made your ‘other half’! I know, without our families behind us, we would be nothing.

Happy Sunday Peeps!

    Family is a blessing! Well most of mine anyway! They’ve helped me so much after my accident and other times. They help me with my son A LOT!

    I know what you mean, sis! For some time, it is really relaxing to just go your own ways. But I think you can only enjoy it because you know that it is not forever, right?

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
