What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.
It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

School holidays for 2 weeks means I have the kids at home.
Significant events for the week just past
1) 5th year wedding anniversary - Tuesday
2) Wife has just flown out to South Africa, she is 4 hours in to a 23 hour flight and my heart feels every mile

So I have a few days off and while I was planning Wednesday & Thursday, Miss 18 brought home a vomit bug from daycare such that Monday night & my 5th anniversary finds me with my head down the toilet for what seems like hours. I suppose that's what you get when one of your kids works at a daycare / kindergarden.

By Wednesday and feeling somewhat better and 2.5 kg's lighter, and no need for visits to the toilet, I manage to get out to see if my stomach can handle a coffee. It uspset me for a few hours, but eventually settled.

Best not tell my 23 year old I've borrowed her dress, since she doesn't know about this side of my life yet. Next time I want to wear it I will probably have to ask her

And ofcourse the courier arrived at my house, so now they have also seen me fully dressed and I had to give out my male name. I could have pretended I wasn't home, but then we would have to drive out to the depot. Miss 17 will be happy as it's her clothing from some online store, she is such a fashion deva.

So Wednesday, while taking it easy, at home with wife and 3 kids, I only took the dress off to go pick up bread & milk from the shops.

Thursday (aka today) seen wife off at the airport then went back to the office for 4 hours, now at home cooking dinner for my 23 year old (who doesn't know officially), 18 year old and myself in floral pants and a lose black mesh top

I'm sure you will be able to tell your oldest when the time is right. If she is anything like the rest of your children she will be ok with Rachel.
