I once met Sinitta. I've always had a soft spot for her, due to the fact that we share the same birthday. Anyway, when I lived in Australia I met her in Sydney. I literally climbed over seats so I could go and speak to her (she was with Nick from Neighbours at the time too!). In my head the conversation would go like this:
"Hello Sinitta, I'm Jennie -how are you?"
"Oh hey Jennie, thanks for taking the time to say hello- I'm pretty surprised to be recognised actually seeing as we are 10000km from home."
"Of course I recognise you! You were a huge star- plus we share a birthday so I've always had a soft spot for you" etc etc.... then we would probably exchange email addresses, send cards to one another on our birthday and maybe she would even invite me to capital city to meet Simon Cowell.
In reality it went like this:
"Hi Sinitta, great to meet you, I'm Jennie"
Sinitta mutters hello, then looks over my head and clearly has no interest in pursuing any conversation.
What a cowbag! I'd climbed over chairs to meet her! I was so gutted I even forgot to say hello to Nick from Neighbours- I hope he wasn't too upset!
Over the past couple of weeks, I've had another conversation that messed with my brain nearly as much as my none convo with Sinitta did. This time it was with my husband and it went something like this.....
"Rob, are we going to try and have any more children?"
Having experienced loss and then IVF this was a crazy conversation to have. The past 4 years of our lives have been so focussed on having children, that I never thought I'd ever have to have to have this conversation. We've decided not to. Truthfully we couldn't go through the potential head mess and probable heartache with trying naturally and we certainly can't afford to do IVF again. It' s weird making that decision. Although we have everything and more in our boys there's still a feeling of sadness that I'm never going to be pregnant again, we're never going to have to think about cycles, temperatures, injections and conception again.
I know I sound spoilt, but it's really messed with my brain!
Have you had 'the convo' yet? Maybe yours was about having more kids, or maybe to stop trying. How did it go for you?
