The birthday boy

Rupes turned 36 today - he's getting old :-)

We had a really nice day. A combined housewarming/birthday party at a friend's place last night, then Katie woke us up very early (not so great after a late night). We managed to grab a few more hours sleep after we gave in and let her come on the bed with us! Then we watched the replay of the All Blacks thrashing South Africa, then off to Allely House for lunch. We got married there nearly six years ago so it was nice to go back and have a relaxing meal. Yummy food too. Then we drove up to Kaukapakapa where I used to live, then to the airfield to watch the planes (I gave Rupes a voucher for a flight for his birthday which he can use later), then coffee at my boss' place and then home.

We are doing ok as far as the failed IVF goes - the sadness is still there for both of us, but we are toying with the idea of maybe doing another cycle early next year. We'll see - and we won't be making any decisions for a while. We need a break and a rest from all the emotional upheaval before we can really see clearly what we want.

Whatever happens, it was nice spending a day together. It was nice to know that after nearly eight years we still have that connection and bond and sense of humour that joins us.

Happy birthday Rupert!

You're sounding good. It's not always easy, but it helps. We'll have the up and the down, but soon the ups will outnumber the downs. Be good to yourself. And Happy Birthday to Rupert.
