In keeping with the Valentine’s Day spirit I’m going to finish the day off with my wedding speech to Jeff 😃 Apologies to my Facebookers – just scroll past – you’ve heard it all before bla bla bla 😄
So make yourself a cuppa, put your feet up and I’ll take you for a trip down my memory lane 😄
I first met Jeff when we worked together. I can still remember the very first time I ever laid eyes on him – I didn’t even know his name at this point – I just knew him as the angry little South African who used to shout at everyone in the workshop 😄
He walked towards me and our eyes met – I wouldn’t say it was love at first sight – lust maybe – but something happened inside my heart ❤️
Of course, being the romantic sort that he is – Jeff doesn’t remember this first meeting – but I think over the years I’ve kind of grown on him – abit like a mould or a rash or something 😳
When we found out we were expecting Arowyn we decided to buy our house and move in together. Jeff’s lifestyle changed drastically – he went from being a single man, living alone in peace and solitude – to a man living in a household with a new baby, two teenage step-sons, and 3 cats 😜
Jeff coped brilliantly with the major changes to his lifestyle – he only took Valium 5 days of the week – the other 2 he stuck to vodka 😜
As the years have moved on Jeff has not only been a wonderful Dad to Arowyn and Lana but he has been a fantastic step-dad to Christian and Cameron – infact he’s made such a great job of being a step-dad that Arowyn asked me why she hasn’t got a step-dad of her own – everyone else in her class has got one!
Jeff has always had a great relationship with the boys. Even when they were going through those teenage years there was never any of this “you’re not our Dad” – I think it’s quite obvious he’s not their Dad seeing as they are mixed race – but even so ….
I also know some of you are wondering “why now?” “Why after ten years are they getting married?” Well it’s simple really – I don’t believe in sex before marriage – Jeff’s been very patient for a long time – I hope he’s worth the wait – I think it will be the best 10 seconds of my life 😳
My Mom always told me “you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your Prince” so here’s to my special frog Prince Jeff – thank you for everything you do for us as a family – Happy Valentine’s Day ❤️
