Prince William and Kate Middleton aren’t the only people getting married this year. No, alas, it’s not me! I’d need a man for that or a woman and I can’t seem to bag either at the moment.

I refer to my brother Shaun and Sarah (see The Long Lost Brother Story). I’m excited for the wedding and feel honoured and privileged that they have invited me to celebrate their love. For the event we have to consider the dress code. I am looking for a smart charcoal gray suit and hot pink tie. Now if anyone knows where I can find a charcoal gray suit, please contact me. I’ve ordered a tie off ebay, hopefully it will be suitable.

Going back to weddings, there’s a rumour that my Uncle is also getting married this year. Not heard anything official yet, so I’ll keep you posted!

Both couples have been together several years and are happy. It’s nice to see and gives me hope, that one day, when the time is right, I’ll meet Mr. Right. Ha ha rather than the Mr. Right Nows I keep meeting.

Take Care,

Some Random Survey

1. Gender?
[] Male
[] Female
[X] Not Sure

2. Age?
[] 18-24
[X] 25-30
[] 31+

Oh I think I’m male, hang on I’ll check. Yep it’s still there. Despite the joking around my gender, the second question – age is a serious one! I’m going out of the 18-24 box to the 25-30 box. I’ll be twenty five this week, Saturday to be exact! So to celebrate I toyed with a few ideas (see Birthday Celebration Ideas) and settled on a night out in Blackpool.

So if your out, perhaps I’ll see you there! If not I’ll be sure to share some of the less compromising photos taken on the night on the blog and Facebook.

The Long Lost Brother Story

By Friends & Family, Happiness & Joy6 Comments

I was about twelve years old when mum told me and my brother Alex (see My Darling Baby Brother) that we had two brothers. My biological dad had a relationship with a woman before he met my mum and the results were two sons. Mum said that she didn’t know where they were or even what their names were. So that was that, we continued on with our lives – not really asking any questions.

Then several months ago mum was on a train. She noticed a ticket inspector and thought she recognised him. She looked at his name badge and her mind swirled like a tornado as she realised it could be one of these brothers. Her hands shook and from somewhere came a compulsion, she simply needed to speak to him. She needed to ask him who his biological father was. She asked him and she was right. He was one of the sons from my biological fathers first relationship. Mum showed him photos of Alex and me and took his number.

What followed was a series of texts between mum and this long lost brother, Shaun. A meet up was organised with the two brothers and mum, Alex and me. Mum and Alex couldn’t wait whereas I was a little guarded. Still my gut was telling me I should go, so I did. On the day Shaun and his partner turned up. The other brother didn’t turn up, he wasn’t ready to meet us, and that’s cool. Meeting Shaun on that day has been the best thing I have ever done!

I’ve gained a big brother, who is fantastic. He makes me laugh and we’ve connected talking about everything and anything. Ha ha, he’s even protective of me wanting to have words with a guy who made some homophobic comment towards me, he didn’t need too though – I have a very sharp tongue! But more than that I’ve also gained a sister-in-law to be who I absolutely adore and three amazing kids.

I’m glad Alex was able to meet them before his death, it’s just such a shame we didn’t come across them sooner. I’m sure on that fateful day on the train, someone was leading mum to Shaun so that we could all meet. Especially for Alex who had limited time left in the physical world. I’m a big believer in everything happens for a reason.

It’s not the blood that makes us family to me, it’s the relationship we have with one another. I feel so lucky and blessed to have met him and his wonderful family. I love that we meet up when ever we can, have good times together that are spent laughing and of course enjoy a drink together.
