Today I had to be a grown up

Today I had to put on smart clothes.
Today I had to answer lots of questions.
Today I had huge mammoth winged butterflies in my tummy.
Today I ...........

went before a panel and was approved to be a Foster Carer.


It's something I've been working hard on over the last year, preparing us, preparing the house, reading thousands of books about all sorts of terrible things and oodles of research on wonderful things too. Filling in form after form after form. Baring my soul and everything that's happened to me in the last 41 years.

It's been exhausting, exciting, un nerving, interesting and emotional.

But it's been good and now I'm nervous and excited about what will happen next on our journey.

So that was my Thursday, how was yours?

Oh my goodness what an amazing thing to do, that's brilliant.

My Thursday was less eventful and important and life changing than yours, although I did go out for dinner with a friend and spotted a colleague who's been on long term sick leave enjoying a meal out - Hmmmmm!

I really admire people who have the strength to do that - it will be really hard work I'm sure but also one of the most rewarding things you will ever do. More power to you!

Wow, that is amazing!! Kudos to you!

My Thursday was uneventful. Like, 100% uneventful. Woke up, went to work, came home, went to sleep. I'd very happily trade places with you!
