Happy Birthday

Today is the birthday of a very special man, Sion.

On Mothers Day we thank our mums, on Fathers Day we thank our dads and so today on your day I give thanks to you.

Thank you for not being embarrassed by my klutz-y, clumsy moments.

Thank you for giving me the confidence to continue to write this little blog of mine. I get a warm feeling inside every time you mention that you've read a post.

Thank you for understanding that even ladies get a little trapped wind and that generally speaking it really is better out than in.

Thank you for encouraging me to get fit and healthy. I'll never be a super model or an Olympic athlete but you notice every effort I make, gently pushing me to try a little more, a little longer. 

Thank you for trusting me enough to show your vulnerability. This last year has at moments been the darkest of times, but we got through each of them stronger, more connected than ever before. I promise that I will always be fighting your corner.

When I went to our friend's house that sunny Sunday afternoon, I never once imagined that I would meet a man.

I don't think I fell in love with you that night, despite showing your prowess (or not) of drinking Jagerbombs and providing me with a very special lap dance...I think it was on our first date. Sat in the bus shelter like a couple of teenagers, waiting for the taxi after being kicked out of the restaurant by the owner (everyone had gone home and he wanted to lock up). We had chatted for the whole evening and you turned to me, looked at me with your beautiful eyes, smiled and kissed me. That was the moment I felt "it", something telling me that you were different, special.

The last two years have been far from perfect, but there have been many more laughs than tears. I hope your birthday brings you all you wish for, you truly deserve it xxx
