So this post is a bit different to the usual ones, but I think every Blog needs a personal post now and then to keep it flowing etc.(sorry monday mayhem, I still love you!)
I usually get a bus to school as I live more than 4miles out of the school radius. When I first moved into this house in 2007 I can remember the first time I had to catch it, I was super nervous! I had never travelled to school on a bus to a new school all by myself.
Whilst waiting for the bus I distinctly remember watching a couple move into the house opposite the bus stop..they had massive amounts of boxes, all her clothes I presume! Banners and colourful string draped the garden with the words "JUST MARRIED".
From that day on, each day I saw their lives form and expand. I witnessed several cars come and go, a dog being welcomed into the family and the woman suddenly became large. I watched as their new little girl grew bigger and as their cars again changed, as the dog had pups and a cat became another member. I saw them throw old furniture out, I looked on as their spare room became filled with toys, I smiled each morning, as they passed me at the bus stop. I laughed at the husband forgetting his keys, and I said hello to another little bundle of joy recently.
Today I saw the family on a walk, and it made me think of how unknown to them, I have watched their family blossom and their lives take on various changes over the past 4 years.
I wonder how many people witness our lives like I did theirs?
