Little Bird has completed his first year at school !!!!

Written by mummybird. Posted in The Birds

Where did that time go?? I can’t believe Little Bird has completed his first year at school. It only seems like yesterday I was dropping him off for his first day at school. He has grown up and learnt so much over the last 10 months I am so proud of him. Today I dropped him off for his last day in Reception Class. He loves his teacher and is so sad to be leaving her. Little Bird wanted to get her some flowers and how could I refuse.

Spread my wings and FLY

I am 36 years old and have never been on a plane, its something I have dodged for many years but when the childrens Father left it got me thinking about what I wanted to do with my life. I want to take the children to amazing places and see amazing things and experience the world but theres one problem ….. I am terrified of flying.

Last week I saw a life coach who helped cure my Emetophobia and I had a feeling that my fear of flying was related to that. I have been hunting online for ‘Fear of Flying’ courses and I found one last minute that started this week. I signed up and couldn’t wait to start.

Last night I headed off to Watford to the Hilton hotel to do part 1 of Fearless Flyer by easyJet, the course went well (I will write all about it in another post) and I left thinking I can not wait to get on a plane. Part 2 is the flight, we are booked onto it tomorrow afternoon and I am really looking forward to it. I NEVER thought I would see the day that I said ” I was looking forward to a flight,” but I honestly am.

Tomorrow we are going up in a plane and flying over London for 45 minutes and then landing. I am feeling really excited about it and can’t wait to get there and see what this crazy world of flying is all about. Over the years I have dodged holidays abroad and tonight I have been sitting here thinking of all the places I want to take the children, so I have started a list,  here’s what I have come up with :

(Obviously not all in one go, I know it will take years to get to all these places.)

I still can’t believe I have been having thoughts to go to these places, it would never have cropped up in my mind before. Its like an alien has got into my head and changed me and I love it. I actually feel excited inside when I think of taking the children away somewhere different. As you can see from my list I started with a short flight, something to get me and the children used to it and then moved up to the big flight of Australia. Again I would NEVER have thought that those words would of come out of my mouth but BANG they have.

My parents are going away on holiday for 3 weeks in June and tonight I rung them to see if I can join them for a week, again OMG I can’t believe I actually asked that. I am not sure if we can make it happen but my mum is looking into it for me. Anyone who knows me well won’t believe I am actually writing these words and feeling this way but its totally true. I don’t know whats happened to me but I like it.

Its a crazy feeling but I finally feel like I can spread my wings and ……………… FLY!!
