The Roof is Leaking…

And the toilet is broken (not flushing), the bath is leaking, we have no front room curtains, the door from the dishwasher has fallen off, most of my cups are broken, the handle for the fridge is broken, the entire house needs decoration, the hard drive with all of our family photos on is broken which we may never recover our photos and the kids have destroyed the Christmas tree decoration.

However, family life has never been happier.

We are spending more time with each other and the hubby and I are getting better at talking with each other and understanding that we don’t need to be perfect but that we just need to love each other for all the best bits and crappy bits.

I often get the grass is greener on the other side syndrome.

You know where you think everyone else is better off and having a better time of it all?

However recently I’ve realised that it’s not true.  On the surface we may look like we are falling apart (well the house maybe!), but as a family we have never been stronger.

I’m looking forward to 2012 and all the adventures that the New Year will bring.

    Such a lovely post, so nice to read how happy you all are. Made me smile, also it sound’s a bit like our house, one of our kitchen cupboards fell a part last night, the handle on our freezer door is broke, we’ve a water stained ceiling from a problem with the tank in the loft, our livingroom wall has two big holes in where curtain tie backs used to be…and i could go on and on lol.
    At least you’re all so happy like you say, that’s the most important thing….although i hope your leaky roof get’s fixed soon 🙂

    Hope you all have a wonderful Xmas, i’m sure you will and lots of Best Wishes for the New Year xxx
