Hurray! Today I’m doing another post for Jenny and Britts 52 week blog challenge and the prompt for todays post is ‘Meet My Family’.
I LOVE my family. I’m a real family girl and I will always cherish each and every one of my loved ones. My parents and my sister Zoë are my best friends, my world, the loves of my life and I am so so thankful to have them in my world. They are my main priority, spending time with them makes me the happiest girl and they bring joy to my world everyday. I couldn’t love them more.
I am blessed to be part of such a happy family, we are all so close and always support one another. My parents have been married almost 20 years now and have been together even longer – and it makes me happiest seeing them in love and caring for one another. My Dad is a real romantic – recently I found an old ‘mixtape’ he had made for my Mum back in 1993, how amazing!!
I have always been a Daddy’s Girl – my Dad is my best friend and he means the world to me. He is silly, fun and playful and when he smiles, I smile. He is the most hard working man I know and the most kind hearted, generous person in the world. He would help anyone out and he does everything he possibly can to make my life the best it can be. He drops me off at work everyday, which I love as it’s our little time of the day to hang out together, I swear even when I drive we still have to have our car chats. We go to the pub and play on the quiz machines together and we enjoy a game of pool every now and then too. My Dad has the most loving heart and he inspires me every day to be the best I can be. He deserves all the happiness in the world and everyday it’s my goal to make sure he can live the life he deserves. I love my Dad so so much!
My Mum is amazing, she is the rock of the family and always there for me. I don’t know what I would do without her. She has always listened to me and accepted me, through my worries and my fears she has never judged me and I know I can tell her anything. She is so strong and one tough cookie, she’s an absolute superstar and I am so thankful she is my mother. I am so proud of her and everything she continues to achieve. I love seeing her happy and seeing her do things for herself – she’s always dedicated her life to us kids but lately now we’re all grown up she’s been learning Spanish, going to the gym more and socialising frequently with her new work friends. I am so happy for her!!
My sister Zoë is my bestie. She’s an absolute superstar and I am so grateful to have her in my life, I am so happy that she’s a part of my family, it would be incomplete without her. I love her so much. Zoë is super talented, she grew up studying musical theatre and loves all things musical!! She recently settled down with her career and became a teacher, I am so proud of her as she has always worked so hard to get where she wants to be and I hope she’s happy now doing what she’s doing. My sister makes me laugh so much, I can always have such a giggle with her. She is so cute and funny – for some reason she reminds me of little Stephanie off Full House ha ha! She is supportive of everything I do and has always been by my side wanting whats best for me. I absolutely love spending time with my sister, seeing her makes me so happy and excited!
Then of course, there’s my extended family…
First up my bro and his little family – Lee, Dennii, Tommy and Widget. My bro, sister in law, nephew and their pet dog!! I love them all so much, spending time with them is always a blessing. Lee is a great brother and I enjoy good conversations with him – he’s very smart and always offers interesting comments or opinions on different subjects.
Denni is kind and has a loving heart, she’s a great mother to Tommy, has the coolest tattoos, is always an amazing host, and she deserves all the happiness in the world! Denni is funny, playful, she has great conversation and I love that she is a part of the family.
Tommy is obviously a little treasure and makes me smile so much, he is the happiest kid in the world who brings so much joy to mine and so many others lives. My favourite times with him are when we play ‘Dot Dot Line Line’, he loves it so much and I love being able to put a smile on his face when we play! He is also so incredibly smart, he amazes me with some of the things that he does, I just love him so much.
And Widget, what can I say? She’s my favourite little dog ever, love her!
I also have two nieces, Mollie and Imogen who I love with all my heart, they are so dear to me. Unfortunately I haven’t seen them in over a year now due to a so called ‘Family Fued’ – don’t ask, only their mum knows what the fued is about LOL. Anyway regardless of anything thats happened in the past, these girls mean the world to me and I have a heart full of love for them. Mollie has recently started secondary school and I know that can be a scary time for some, I pray with all my heart that she’s doing just fine (and I’m sure she is from what I’ve heard) but it breaks my heart knowing that if she’s ever upset or down about anything I can’t be there for her and the same goes for Imogen too. I wish they could know that I will always be here for them no matter what. I am so so proud of these two girls, Mollie is the sweetest, most amazing kid I know and Immy is just adorable and so bubbly. I wish them nothing but love and happiness and I hope one day we can be a part of each others lives again.
Finally we have my Grandparents. My Nan on my Mum’s side and my Gran and Grandad on my Dad’s side. My Nan is the wildest Grandma I know, she’s the type of Nan who would definitely go on ‘Spring Break With Grandad’. She’s 82 now and it was only a few years ago she was on holiday experiencing a Booze Cruise, what a joker!! She’s entertaing and funny and I coudn’t ask for a cooler Nan.
Gran and Grandad are just the sweetest, they are warm hearted and have hearts of gold. They always look after me and everyone in the family and they completely spoil us all rotten. My Gran actually gives me giggles, she’s so funny with the little things she says and does and my Grandad is just the sweetest. I can’t remember a time they’ve ever been mad at me, we have only fond memories together. I love them with all my heart.
My family mean the world to me and I am blessed to have each and everyone of these people in my life. I love them all so so so much. This post has already gone on for so long now, I feel like I need to call it a day because I could honestly ramble on forever about the love I have for my fam.
So on that note I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone I have mentioned in this post, thank you thank you thank you for making my world so much brighter. I love you all so much.
‘Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten’.
