You made my day

(Scroll down for English)

O dia comecou torto. Acordei mais cedo porque “e hoje que chego a horas” mas um precalco ca por casa atrasou-me as contas e la cheguei eu tarde ao trabalho. Isto depois de ser comprimida no metro durante 45 minutos. O dia prometia. Mas la pela hora de almoco, recebi a noticia que encheu o meu dia: a minha amiga mais antiga, aquela com quem partilho a minha vida ha quase tantos anos quantos aqueles que tenho (temos), prepara-se para embarcar no mais acutilante e doce desafio de todos: a maternidade. Parece que foi ontem que saimos da escola no intervalo grande para ir comprar suspiros… Ha dias que comecam mal mas fazem-se bons com alegrias destas. Parabens minha querida, you made my day!

The day started crooked. I woke up earlier because “today I’ll get to work on time” but a home mishap delayed me and I got to work late. And that, only after being squeezed on the tube for 45 minutes. The day was promising. But by lunch time, I received the news that filled my day: my oldest friend, the one with whom I have shared almost my entire life, is preparing to embark on the most daunting and sweet challenge: motherhood. It seems like it was yesterday that we left school during the long break to get meringues… There are days that start poorly but turn into good ones, thanks to joys like these. Congratulations my dear, you have made ​​my day!
