Missing you

Hallo Billy. Mummy misses you. There's not a day Mummy doesn't think of you. Mummy is speaking up and about many stigmas, prejudices and emotional things these days. There are people who think Mummy is embarrassing them by bringing up this subject. Mummy feels very strong about this term now. Mummy started it, so Mummy will do everything she can while she has the chance.

Many people are very supportive. In fact just a few days ago someone posted a video on Youtube. The video was the Mongolian Airlines plane landed and took off from Edinburgh airport. That was probably the first time ever a Mongolian plane landed there. The plane brought the military band for this year's Tattoo in Edinburgh. Mummy was so excited and glad that someone captured this historic moment. Then the video captions included the word Mong! Mummy was so upset that she shared the link on Facebook and Twitter. Mummy cried in bed that night. The plane was only for about an hour and that word came up! Mummy couldn't believe it. Then a few people wrote to the guy and he took the captions off. Mummy was so pleased. Mummy hopes now that the person understands why it is offensive. Mummy is grateful to her friends and even strangers who did something about it. Your Daddy was good. We feel each other's pain. He did what he could too.

Mummy thinks that this example shows we can raise awareness. People do understand and change can happen.

Mummy likes this quote by Nelson Mandela:

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

Hallo Billy buuz, big boy. You are a big boy because you are a big brother now. We were on holiday in Chester last week. It was a lovely time. We lit a candle for you in the cathedral. You are everywhere, baby. Mummy should stop calling you all 'baby' because your little sister thinks she is a baby still and likes to be in her cot with Mummy giving her a bottle of milk.

Your big sister and brother are doing well, enjoying the holidays. A Scottish tennis played called Andy Murray won the Wimbledon this year and it was a great fun watching him win. Your big brother is so keen to play tennis now and asks us to play with him again and again. So we do, but with your little sister wanting to walk all the time holding hands it can be a bit of a challenge.

Mummy and Daddy have been making our house nice. Your Daddy has been painting the outside of the house and Mummy was just pottering around the garden and shopping for things to decorate the new extension. It's a nice feeling.

We are still deciding the book cover at the moment. Mummy and Daddy have seen some of the designs and they all look good. So we will see which one will be the best. The publisher has been a great support and she is very easy to speak to. Mummy started writing the book in Mongolian. Saying that, Mummy needs to crack on to get it done before your big sister's birthday. That's Mummy's deadline. Mummy also made a vision board that what Mummy wants to achieve in life. So that's a nice way to see a concrete goal even though most of them are untangible and feeling happy.

Mummy's meeting lots of interesting and inspiring people and many exciting things to come. Mummy's little and big boy - you are in our hearts. We will do it together and make it happen. Ok, Billy good night. Love you loads and loads. Mummy's angel. XXXX

"I Have A Dream" by ABBA

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream ...
