Birthday Week!

Good evening!

Wow i cant believe how quickly Monday’s come around again! How did you find your first week of home schooling? We did pretty well, no arguments and we’ve actually had lots of fun together and I’ve learnt a few things…..mainly on the maths side. So this week is Alfie’s 12th birthday which is actually tomorrow. I cant believe he’s going to be 12, time flies and with everything thats going on in the world right now its made me realise many things, one being i need to spend more time with my children than what i have been doing, as they don’t stay little for long…….my eldest is 23 later this year!

So as you can all imagine our birthday plans which we had didn’t happen this weekend, Alfie had picked to go to his favourite restaurant in Leeds with his best friend. So I’ve told him that tomorrow he doesn’t need to do any school work (don’t worry he’s done extra today to make up for it) and that we will most likely have a PJ day and watch movies and eat sweets for most of it. We are going to have some quality time together and be grateful for what we have. I’m going to make it a day to remember for him, he’ll remember that his 12th birthday was full of laughter, happiness, video calls to family members and that he was able to still have contact via video calling with his close family. He’ll always remember this day in such a positive way and thats because i’ll make the whole day so special. To anyone who’s reading this who may also have a child’s birthday coming up or maybe your own, i want to wish  you all a happy birthday and to just remind you, its not what you do on your birthday that matters, its how you create happiness and to have those who are close to you around you via the technology of video calling as to me that makes your day so much better. Oh and i forget to add, me and his Dad have bought him a few little treats so he’s something to actually open…….itll have have to be wrapped in my branded wrapping paper though lol as we’ve been unable to go and buy wrapping paper as i felt it wasn’t essential, I’m sure he wont mind though as one of his little gifts is something he’s been asking for, for months. His main present is money as he’s saving up, but he cant have a birthday without a few treats and he did also say to his Dad the other day, ‘if i can have an easter egg on my birthday i’ll be so happy’ so of course we’ve made sure we have one for him.

My Monday blogs over the next coming weeks maybe months will to hopefully reach out to many of you at this difficult time and hopefully spread some positivity and happiness. Im staying very positive, don’t get me wrong theres moments i have when i may feel sad or possibly have a little cry, but then i give gratitude that I’m here with some of my family and that I’m able to keep in touch with other and that i have my health too. I feel the more positive we are, the easier each day is to get through it and we are all in this together and together we can be strong and lift each other up when we feel we are struggling. I’ve learnt a lot about myself over the last week and I’ve also seen how i play a massive part in some peoples lives and that how much my products seem to lift many of you, I’ve received some beautiful messages which have really touched my heart and knowing that when you melt my wax its helping you so much. It makes me happy knowing that I’m able to help you feel better and when i set out to start my business i knew i wanted to make everyone feel happy and of course sparkly too and i feel I’ve achieved that with many of you.

For those who may be reading this that aren’t in my wax group, please head on over and request to join, my members are certainly lifting everyone spirits and it certainly is such a lovely little community I’ve built along with the help of my customers and members too. I want to say a massive thank you for taking time to read my blog this evening and that i hope its helped you in many ways. Please remember…..you’re amazing and together we are strong and we will get through this.

My inbox is always open to anyone of you and i wish you love, health and happiness!

 

Love

    Happy birthday Alfie. It was my birthday on Saturday and not the one I planned either. My lovely family and friends made sure I received presents beforehand and I was under strict instructions not to open them. We video called and it was different but funny.
