"I was struggling, I was stranded, then I bent down and cupped my hands in your water."


The thought of starting a new relationship and finding out you're going to be parents in the first few weeks is a terrifying thought! but this is exactly where I find myself in this new chapter of my life. I'm not usually the irresponsible type, I'd never usually throw myself into something this heavy, without putting a lot of thought into it, but then life waits for no-one. As scary as it is though, it shows pretty quickly your intensions, just how into each other you are and where your head is at, in regards to the future. I'll admit, that becoming a father again was not on the cards for me, I thought I'd put that one to rest a long time ago. 

Surprisingly, the kids were pretty excited about the news, which I guess is making the whole transition into us being 'new parents' again, that little bit easier. Opeie has even decided to start a project about his new siblings... yes siblings!!! This may not be where I expected my life to be at nearly 43 but Ive always been pretty good at adapting to big life changes, no matter how scary they may seem.

Its amazing how close you can become with someone over this kind of news, and its pretty amazing when you find that person who's excitement matches your own. especially last night getting an exciting call to say that they had grown mini legs... obviously I was talking about tadpoles... was that not clear?

It's going to be a lush couple of months watching the development of our babies and making sure they have everything they need, and what a beautiful and fun way to bring two people closer together. Being new parents is amazing.
