Today is my little baby boy's first birthday! I don't want to rant on about how much I love him and all that bullshit, but he may find this blog 20 years later so I do have to just say that he is the light of my life and I love him so much it even makes me consider having another baby...
I generally don't like babies under 1, so I'm actually looking forward to everything from now on even more!
And it wouldn't be a special birthday without something totally and utterly shitting me off! So I took a few days off work, because, well I make my own school calender and why not take some time off for my son's birthday! I knew I'd need to be at least baking or buying a pressie and would need a bit of extra time. So I just have a few make up lessons this week, pure bliss.
So when it came to what we should do for Bailey's birthday, MIL and I were discussing that maybe if we were to have a house party (like we did for Ash and as we always do for birthdays) then maybe Saturday would be better when nobody has work the next day. Of course I have no work so I don't give a fuck, but any whinging from Ryota saved benefits me too so I agreed. I did think we'd have to do a little something on his actual birthday though, I can't just let it pass...
So anyway, it gets closer to the day, and Ryota says he doesn't really care if the party is on a Thursday or not, it won't exactly be vodka shots and lines of coke till the morning anyway. So I suggested that we just get sushi take away at home tonight. This also coincided with Junpei being given temporary passes out of hospital, tonight being one of the days he gets to come home for a while. I don't know why they don't just release him, but whatever, he'd been banging on about wanting to eat sushi, so I thought, perfect! Junpei wants to eat sushi, we need to have a sushi party, I'll make a cake that will be purely for photos because Ryota's cunting family won't eat cake that isn't strawberry cream boredom cake. Done!
And... Shot down. Junpei wants to go out to eat the sushi. The same exact sushi that would make everyones life easier by being eaten at home... I don't fucking understand it. So I thought, fuck you all then, if you don't want to see Bailey on his birthday we'll have a mini family party and then do the sushi on Saturday. Just us, they can go fuck themselves. Of course this brings up a whole new set of problems, Ash will definitely want to go with them tonight, and fair play to him, he doesn't get the polititcs of it, he just wants to eat sushi. I made it clear that I was not a happy gaijin and MIL came back with "But we agreed not to have his party on the Thursday!" But it's totally different in my mind, I had no idea they were going out I thought we'd all just be hanging around home.
Anyway, trying not to get too pissed off about it, I figure we'll have a mini party at home tonight and then get sushi on Saturday, if they want to join and eat sushi twice in 3 days then they can.
