I’m linking up with the lovely Jocelyn from TheReadingResidence for #wotw.

As some of you may or may not know I have recently had an operation to remove my gallbladder and gallstones. Unfortunately they weren’t able to do everything they needed to do via keyhole and had to go in properly. This has now left my with a lovely big cut just under my ribs and a recovery time of 6 to 8 weeks. Not only does it make moving, breathing, coughing and sneezing difficult but it also means I can’t pick my babies up.

Which is something I’m really longing to do!


With every passing moment
I long to carry you
To feel you wriggle and jiggle
As you shake with bouts of giggles

Oh how I long to carry you two
As I’ve done so many times before

But sadly I can’t as this would only break me more.

With every passing moment I feel my heart breaking
As I watch you with arms wide open longing to be carried!!
