29th May 2020 – Friday
Today is my 20th anniversary. Yep, I have been with my husband for 20 years. Gosh, that is a long time to be with one person. I’ve been married for 13 years but together for a whole two decades.
I met my husband in university – he wasn’t the usual guy that I got for but I knew when I met him I would spend the rest of my life with him.
He is my GOAT (Greatest Of All Time).
We normally got out for a celebratory dinner on our anniversay, but due to our current circumstances, we ordered in. We let the kids pick and they chose Peck Peck. A lovely little fried chicken shop that sells the best crispy chicken wings and fries. Haha yes, fried chicken for our anniversary dinner – and why not!? Here’s to another 20 years! Bottoms Up!!
This week has been a stressful week. I am having some family problems which is really getting me down. They say you can’t choose your family … damn right! When you give an inch and they take a mile … keep taking and taking without any thought for someone other than themselves. I have gotten to the point where I am ready to walk away … I need to for my own mental health. Is it wrong of me? Is it wrong of me to put myself and my children first? Being family doesn’t it give them the right to behave the way they behave … their sense of entitlement is laughable!
Lockdown update: Dominic Cummings (Boris Johnson’s Senior Advisor) has been naughty … it has been revealed that during the lockdown he and his wife travelled over 250 miles to drop off his children to his parents home in Durham. He did this because he said that his wife and himself were about to succumb to the coronavirus and would not be able to look after their children.
What the public was angry is that they broke the lockdown rules. Not only did he leave his children with his (elderly) grandparents which is not allowed, he also travelled over 250 miles to drop them off. Non-essential travel was prohibited at that time. So the question that is on everyone’s lips was how was it ok for Cummings to break lockdown rules, but the general public were getting fined for the similar actions?
The public demanded answers and for the resignation of Dominic Cummings. Boris Johnson however decided to stand by his man and the government are now reviewing the circumstances of members of the public who were fined for similar situations. How shameful is our government?
Hope you are all well and safe. Lots of love to you all!
