Happy and Melancholy

This weekend has been very busy around Casa de Dashfield.  DH celebrated another trip around the sun which we celebrated by taking him out to dinner at his favorite restaurant and surprising him with a birthday cake – and no fire trucks had to be summoned to extinguish the flames from the candles 🙂  I think I had more of a headache from eating too much sweets (which I normally don’t do) than from the martini when celebrating with DH.Then there was his mom’s birthday and daylight savings times has everyone looking at their clocks and watches wondering if they reset themselves or what.

Those moments and the fact that next week I will be back home visiting the now almost four month old were the happy times.  While I thought I had gotten used to it, today started off with some melancholy as it is my mother’s birthday.  She has been gone now for six years but every once in awhile I feel the loss.  Circle of life and all that stuff… sigh.   I will be back tomorrow with a return to our trip last September that took us to Maine.

Cya tomorrow 🙂

    Six years or six days, your memories won’t fade, you’ll cherish each one forever.

      Well not the ones where she grounded me for some insignificant discretion 😉 Thanks.

    Happy birthday to DH, and to your mother. My own has been gone for 10 years now, and we still feel the loss around her birthday.

      Thank you for your kind wishes. It gets better with time but never totally goes away.

    Happy birthday to your hubby and your mum. Birthdays are always tough when we’ve lost loved ones. Thinking of you. X
