So picture this – it was three weeks ago in Menorca, I had shockingly poor wifi connection – I know…scandalous right? I mean it’s 2015 after all 😉 I had to stay stuck to one particular point otherwise I’d be disconnected from the world but I had a 4 year old who didn’t care about the latest Facebook gossip that mummy wanted to catch up on – when I received a whatsapp message from my best friend.
We managed to get a few lines of conversation in when she said ‘I’ve got something to tell you.’ I knew what she was going to say before she even said it…she was pregnant! I was ecstatic for her and so excited at the prospect of having a new born to hold in the not to distant future (if you haven’t worked it out by now…I’m baby mad lol). Now this next part…I thought were only made up stories in the back of ‘take a break’ magazine and never actually happened to real life people but apparently they do…I asked how far along are you expecting like 8 weeks or something like that. No…no she was 6 and a half months gone already! She’d only found out two days before she told me 😮 ‘oh and by the way…it’s a girl!’ Now you don’t know my friend but she is the most organised person I know. If she’s going on holiday in three months…her bag would already be packed (yep…she is a bit crazy but she’s friends with me, what do you expect?) So this bombshell totally knocked her for six! By the time I got back from holiday a week later and met up for a catch up she’d already planned the nursery, got the pram, brought some clothes and named the baby! The most I’d accomplished that week was a tan lol!
So as I sit here staring out the window at the torrential downpour wondering why I’ve never been married, why I still haven’t met Mr Right or why I don’t have a ‘conventional’ idealistic life…it just goes to show that you can make as many plans as you want but in the end whatever will be, will be and your whole world can change in the blink of an eye. If things aren’t how you want them to be at the moment, that’s not to say they won’t be so don’t worry…life works in mysterious ways. x
