The last 8 hours have been rather interesting.
Rhys received his provisional driving license, its a temporary one for 3 years because of his health issues, DVLA will review the situation then. So with that in mind I've broken my decision to have an alcohol free August and had my wife pick up some wine and whisky, the latter being to celebrate Rhys finally getting a license after months of waiting.
After a large whisky and two glasses of red wine I think the alcohol hit me in a way I wasn't expecting. I found myself feeling a bit annoyed and down because stuff hadn't been done and we have my in-laws visiting tomorrow.
Strangely the thing that really hit hard was when Rhys jokingly made a comment that assumed I had a boyfriend.
I've made joking comments to my wife at times about having boyfriends but they've not been serious. However, over the last few days, she and I had been talking about our relationship, partly because of some stuff family stuff that's been going on but also because of my wanting to get a Gender Recognition Certificate and then a new birth certificate.
Rhys' comment stung a bit because I know that if I really, really wanted to then I could have a boyfriend.
I know that where I am post surgery my emotions are going to be up and down at times but I didn't expect it to get triggered like this.
The next few days are definitely going to be interesting as I deal with in-laws and fluctuating emotions if they don't settle down.
