From this morning, brothers and sisters making plans for the day….

Today I have been thinking about how fab it is to have brothers and sisters.  My own combo is a big brother and two little sisters. Over the years, these cool folk have stuck by me and joined me for the ride through moving houses, building a house, bust ups, having babies, surviving B&S balls, heading off to music festivals, concerts, once in a lifetime gigs (Pearl Jam with my sis would have to be top of the list), venting about stuff that’s annoying us, dealing with losing people we love and a whole stack more.

It’s a sort of companionship that’s built up over decades, loads of shared experience, fun, tears and conquering fears.  It’s also about getting over yourself, any fights, arguments or differences of opinion fall by the wayside and we move on. Together as one big crazy/ chaotic family.

It’s solid gold really.

I missed my brother and my sisters this year at Christmas (they are on the East Coast and we are West Coast), maybe that’s why I was thinking about them this morning on my way to get a coffee with the tribe.  I watched my own little tribe having fun together this morning as they planned their day, where they could ride their bikes, how many times could they go swimming, and laughing at the morning cartoons.

Golden times.

My brother and sisters and I know each other so well now that we can spend months, years apart, and then when we see each other again, the time passed evaporates and we pick up where we left off.

I know they think about me, and want them to know I am always thinking about them too.  I am already saving and planning for our next trip across Australia to see everyone.

Do you have brothers or sisters?

Enjoy xx

      I still remember ‘doubling’ you on my bike (with a cushion on the back parcel carrier – you know for safety and comfort!). Hope our kids can all have the same as they grow up together! K xx
