(home made anniversary card)
It was our 11th Anniversary last weekend, (so this post is a bit late). We aren't married, but we have always recognised the date we met instead. This guy has been so unbelievably supportive of anything I do. I know we all need someone to be there, stand up for us, be a sounding board... but sometimes things can get really crazy in life and that really does bring out the best in people.
That is whats happened with us this year. I think to a certain extent, I have been hiding behind the dolls on here. With everything else going on, concentrating on them has helped me get through a very tough year. We have had some terrible problems with my parents. My mother has had a life time of anger build up and it has landed on me. With a devastating effect on our family. Unfortunately they don't seem to realize what it has done to the children. Its put them in a situation which they shouldn't be in - which isn't fair.

We've also had the hiccup of redundancy. Its been delayed a couple of times, but it will be happening soon. With these things has come a huge 'shift'. One of those life changing things where you suddenly look at everything differently. It has bought us so much closer together - to be more supportive and understanding - really appreciating what we are to one another.
(that nose has been broken 6 times!)
So thanks to the unwavering support of this guy, we are getting there. We're hoping to find work in another country, where there are more opportunities for him in his career. We're staying positive and knowing that things will turn out alright - at some point!xx
