Some things just happen so quickly and out of the blue there’s no other way than to adapt. Or wake up. Last week my mum was rushed to the hospital with sharp stomach pains and although she’s totally fine now, she had to go through a complicated appendicitis operation. I realised a couple of things when it all happened. One of them is that I take for granted how healthy my parents are and always there, available when I need them. I was running some errands in the area where my parents live and wanted to pop into a supermarket nearby, but wasn’t sure if it was still there or not. I picked up my phone to dial mum and ask her about it, forgetting that she was in the hospital recovering. It’s at that moment when I realised how much I rely on their infinite youth, energy, love… I obviously didn’t call her, but having to put my phone away and not call her when I wanted made me realise that I have to cherish each moment spent together even more. A wake up call I needed I guess and a reminder to simply be grateful about every moment in my every day life. Have you had any similar wake-up calls?
On a separate, less deeper note, can we just talk about this gorgeous £20 dress I picked up in zara? The texture, the buttons, the 60s inspired style and fabric – I’m in love. Totally not heartbroken by the fact that my daughter thinks the dress makes me look like a “stylish” chef and the blazer resembles of a potato sack. I’m not crying. Nope. And promise, Sasha is a nice kid haha…
Have a fab week everyone and cherish your closest ones.
