It's Flyfour's Birthday!

Since Flyfour came into my life, my best friend has been him. Instantly the connection we had was more than just attraction, it was like the way Plato said. We were are two halves of one whole.

And today is his birthday. A day, where we get to celebrate him with gifts and Cake and blog posts.

Happy Birthday, Flyfour.

Dan Jon's Diary

Dan Jon has always liked writing, and like me likes to write down things which are important and he'd like to remember in the future. The boy is a blogger in the making I am sure. Normally he writes things down in notebooks that he keeps about his person or hidden in or on his desk or one of his many other hiding places in his bedroom. I noticed just before Christmas that Dan Jon was taking one of his notebooks to School and found it was because he was wanting to make notes about his day as he was going along.

There was just one problem, of course, a notebook without a lock is very easy to be picked up, opened and read and Dan Jon was finding that several of his classmates were picking up his notebook and starting to flick through it, before he could quickly ask them to stop and explain why it was that he didn't want them to read his writings.

Top Ender's January Date

The first person to get a date in January was Top Ender, just because with all the volunteering she and I do, I knew as soon as they started back up we were going to have issues with getting time together! So after picking up Flyfour from the train station and leaving him and Dan Jon at home, we went on our first date of the year.

Oh sorry. Outing. Top Ender told me it isn't a date, it was an outing.

I know that Top Ender loves going to Ikea, she loves walking around and examining the different products, eating in the Restaurant or the Bistro and of course I love it too. So that is what I organised for her first outing.

We started off in the restaurant as it was already late and we were hungry. We sat and we ate and we talked and we giggled and we caught each other up with what was going on and what was coming up over the next few weeks and we were having fun.

All Meals We Are Eating 14th January 2019

January is moving so fast! I'm actually a little glad because I hope we are rushing to a beautiful Summer! We were totally spoiled last year, with a wonderful Summer and so I'm hoping that this year will be just as special. And if not, then I'm just going to sit in the garden with a rain hat on and pretend it is Sunny.

Families Can Be Together Forever

I think one of the main things that most people know about members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is linked to families. Either they have big families, they put families first, they are family orientated, they do a lot of Geneology work or they may think something like "they all call each other Brother and Sister at that Church... they must all be related!". It's generally always something to do with families.

And yes, a lot of members do have big families. Yes, we do put our families first. Yes, we do like spending time with our families. We do, do a lot of Geneology work. Yes, we do call each other Brother and Sister, but we aren't always related, it's just a way of reminding us that we are all God's children and we should treat each other that way.
