This is a special post dedicated to someone VERY special in my life. (Don't worry no ones died)
I don't normally go into graphics on here to much about my private life so bear with me, I might get a bit soppy lol
I would like to introduce David,
we first met when I was a very frightened 17 yr old (yep I know)
from the moment I set eyes on him i knew my life was never going to be the same.
we both grew together :) it wasn't easy at first, but we got by, here's some of my memories
these are two of my fave photos this one as it was his first nursery photo and he was so god damn cute...(slight bias)
And this one because it always reminds me of how understanding and grown up he was even at 4.
we were at Butlins Skeggy, my Dad had taken us as a treat for my '21st'. Money was a bit tight and on the first day he spotted these huge cones, I explained that if we wasted our 'P's' the first day on ice cream we might not have enough to do fun things later. He smiled took my hand and said 'K'. He never asked again. On the last day i took him to buy one........it was as big as his head....he was that excited he nearly dropped it!
He tells me quite frankly still that the story I told him about jack frost coming in the night to snip off his fingers and toes, because he always kicked his bedding off, scared the bejesus out of him and still makes him pull his feet in at night.... oops! Its a learning curve peeps lol
We started big school together, off he went to secondary in his 'he'll grow into it' blazer, me off to Uni to do my degree.... he knew how nervous I was and as I dropped him off he said 'you'll be okay once you've made some friends'...... we used to do our home work together ha ha. It was hard work but we got there.
He didn't want to go to college :( .... he got a job.... all grown up ..... I was a little disappointed but he worked hard..... shared the bills .....paid his way .....even bought me a few beers after work....we used to get funny looks....look at her with the toy boy, we still fall about laughing about the time his friend chatted me up, the poor lad was horror struck when he realised who I was.
he moved out got a flat.....got a car ..... I don't know if I was more scared for him in the car or the others on the road with him lol ...god I missed him
Then came the news 'I want to go to Uni'........... I must admit every fibre of my being screamed NO! .......how would he cope.....what if he needs me....how do I keep my eye on the Bi P if hes so far away......Looking back I think I needed him more than he needed me.......OUCH!
Apron strings severed and off he went....I cried like it was his first day at school.
BUT .....He's coped, he's enjoyed it........ .hes made some great friends, travelled all over the world.......... and met a very special lady......
He's always been my best friend, my one constant, my tea bellied cuddle bunny, my support, my straight answer guy .........no seriously Mum your bum looks big in that....... My Beloved who I have loved unconditionally for 26 yrs (and believe me he has tested it) and I will continue to love him till the last breath has left my body............ Then shall haunt him as pay back for the stretchmarks ;)
And so we reached the end of my very condensed tale and the reason for my post....with a few ups and downs, lots of hard work, support whether he wanted it or not (he still needs me) and an amazingly wonderful patient girlfriend ...........amongst other things...
My Beautiful Baby Boy has graduated from University of Wales Trinity Saint David Lampeter with a 2:1 Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology
