Thankful {Ordinary Moments Week 21 – 24/5/15}

As I write this my voice is hanging on by a thread. Voice loss happens to me at least 2-3 times a year, it started when I fell pregnant with J in 2012 and seems to have continued ever since. We have become pretty good at coping with it, have our own version of charades and an app I use when it completely disappears (which makes me sound like Stephen Hawking but brings a few smiles to people)

I won’t lie, although everyone finds it funny every time it happens (I’m known for my love of talking) it really does get me down and I just want to curl up and disappear. In the background there’s someone who is also coping (albeit quietly) with my voice loss and trying to keep me upbeat. That person is my hubster

In addition to my voice, I have been shattered due to random work hours, and have not really wanted to do anything but sleep. He has kept the house clean, cooked dinners, looked after me, my girl and dog, and just been his usual amazing self. Even tonight he cooked a big yummy lasagne for us all (SW style), bathed J and cleaned and tidied up once more. It doesn’t sound like much but it really meant a lot to me, he even suggested me having 2 hours sleep this afternoon to help recover

This week marked 7 years since we first met and I honestly cannot believe how quick the time has gone! We are a little older, have a few grey hairs (him, not me!), have a beautiful daughter and have been on a few life rollercoasters but no matter what we face in the months and years ahead I am incredibly thankful to have my hubster

About to head out for a very rare night out a few weeks back, check out the cheesy grins!

    Happy Anniversary, your hubby sounds lovely. I am a vocal coach, but I got into that when I lost my voice for months due to stress. I had to go to a vocal therapist. I am so careful now with my voice. It’s not nice not being able to talk. Look after yourself, if you ever want any tips to sooth it email me xxx #ordinarymoments
