Anticipation… #ThrowbackThursday

Reposting this in honour of the little bundle who I was waiting for three years ago!
Happy 3rd Birthday to my gorgeous nephew!

… or in other words, waiting…


It’s a great thing, isn’t it?  You could be on the edge of your  seat, eagerly willing your team to win the game you’re watching on TV, counting the days until that special holiday, nerves jangling, watching your wedding day come nearer… and the countdown to that wondrous day that is oh so close now, Christmas!

Similarly, you may be dreading something, in anticipation of that God-awful dentist appointment… maybe results day is looming!  Or waiting for those unwanted visitors to come and go…

Either way, your adrenalin is up!

In precisely this way, I have been in anticipation of something oh so special!  Pacing rooms, trying to keep busy.. there’s only so much shopping/laundry/cleaning etc. that I could do, to keep my mind off it!  Phone attached to my hand permanently, checking my messages on the minute, sometimes even more!

Oh hurry up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

…and finally! The news we have been waiting for! My brother dearest and my gorgeous sister-in – law have delivered our Christmas present early! I am now a very proud aunt to my first proper nephew!!!!


They are not in the same country as we are so I will have another bout of waiting now, as to when we can see that gorgeous bundle of love, but now my brother dearest can show his skills, learned from our precious Pops, and become the brilliant father that I know he will be!

Looking forward to cuddles with my Finnjabi (Finnish yummy mummy, Punjabi doting daddy!) nephew ASAP!!!

    I love being an uncle, but hate the waiting part. Good thing all of my niece’s and nephews are here. They now have kids of their own and life continues to amaze and astound
