I’m in bed, with a glass of Champagne (a habit I have adopted as of late to end my day with), browsing through my husband’s picture on flickr. It brings back so many good memories, especially the ones of us on holiday, fooling around like little kids on a beach. We are like children, all of us. Our house is like a 300m2 playground for kids. There is a chaotic cleanliness or a clean mess, depending on how you want to see it. Every room is in order, yet disarray. There is noise, around every corner, until the last man (usually me) turns off the light at 1 am. Dogs are barking, cats our meowing, kids are either laughing or crying, I am shouting and my husband is, well I can’t think of anything else than farting 🙂
That is our household, around the clock, 365 days of the year. Friends are coming over, usually MJ, and he is only marginally better than my husband (a stinky incident in Maastricht comes to mind!). The kitchen is fuming (I’m a notoriously bad cook with a very limited repertoire), the whisky is flowing and cigars are being consumed at an ever increasing pace.
And it’s this chaos, this constant flux, which I am forever trying to get a grip on but utterly failing in doing so, which is the very core of our family. A family that despite the occasional threat of divorce, walking out on my husband, and one time taking into some dodgy hotel in the outskirts of Amsterdam, is as tight knit and close as ever. As I am flickering through those pictures, I am reminded of all that love, and how fortunate I really am. So with the risk of sounding like I love sick fool, I love you with all my heart. You and the kids are the best thing that ever happened to me. So come home tonight, lets share a drink, lets talk, cuddle up. I want to sleep in your arms tonight. And wake up to a splendid Friday! God I feel good! Love you loads! xxx
