Awesome things are happening today.

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE! I'm writing that in all caps because today seriously is an amazing day. So many good things have happened and it's not even 1pm yet.

Firstly, I woke up to one of my closest friends announcing that his wife had gone into labour. Their little man isn't even due until the 30th but just after 10am, they were on their way to the hospital. Whilst being glued to Twitter for updates, I had an Amazon parcel be delivered which contains multiple presents for the kids for their birthdays and Christmas. Shortly after that arrived, a Twitter update simply said "He is nearly here, very close now." I start squealing with excitement and could barely keep still. That's when I heard the post be delivered. Not expecting it to be anything important I took my time to go get it but when I picked the two letters that had come through the door, up off the floor, I could feel a small plastic card in one and a small passport sized book in the other. My heart jumped and I raced back upstairs to open the letters but before I could, there was another Twitter update... little Logan had arrived. At 11:56am, he entered the world. Proud dad literally posted the birth announcement 2 minutes after Logan was born and shared a photo of him on his mums chest. I honestly started crying with happiness. I was bouncing up and down in the chair, wiggling with giddy joy as the tears filled my eyes. I am so unbelievably happy for my friends and I so cannot wait to see them, give them both massive hugs and to give Logan so many snuggles.

I was so caught up in the announcement of Logan's birth that I totally forgot the two letters on my desk. Once I calmed down though, I opened the passport letter and thankfully my passport did make it back in one piece. I then nervously opened the second letter. I could feel there was a plastic card in there but still a teeny part of me was worried I was about to open a rejection letter. Thankfully that wasn't the case and I have in front of me, my first ever drivers license. I never learned to drive in Australia and never even went for my learners permit so to have this provisional drivers license in my hand right now, is a major first for me. I am so happy that my application wasn't rejected and now I actually have a UK drivers license. This mean I can now apply for my Australian birth certificate, which later means I can apply for student finance and start studying next year. The first step has been ticked off and I can now move onto the next one. Things are starting to come together and honestly, today I am feeling on top of the world. So much good has happened in such a short amount of time today that I haven't even gone and weighed myself yet today. I'm expecting to maintain this week and honestly, I'm ok with that. I am too happy right now for anything to bring me down. My friends are parents, Logan is here and he's healthy, my drivers license arrived.... like seriously, today is a bloody good day! I feel so happy right now.

Until next time,
