New Beginnings

This post has been postponed and put off for a very long time but I guess I have to bite the bullet and get it over and done with. I think I have not been blogging because things are so different now and even though all the important people in my life know about this, it is still a very awkward topic that will hit a nerve with loved ones. I also do not want to upset anyone with posts, but I guess at the end of the day reading what I write is a personal choice.

Simply put I asked Malcolm for a separation and after a year I moved out into my own apartment and started a very new and foreign journey. The girls have been absolutely fantastic and although I am sure it is difficult for them they have settled well and are very encouraging and supportive.
I am not going to say much else about it, as it is obviously very personal but perhaps after getting this out the way I can return to blogging with some enthusiasm, instead of treating a hobby I used to enjoy as a duty and a chore.

Holy crap.

Sorry, that was an instinctive reaction. Wow, I am immensely impressed at the dignity with which you must have gone through so much, not to be spilling it all out here while it was happening. I went through a silly break-up of a relationship that had only been going for a year or so, and it took over my whole blog (and life, and thoughts, and feelings, and...). I hope you're doing OK, and happy. Didn't see that coming. I know I don't comment often, but I do read, and I'm fond of you and your family despite not really knowing you.

Hugs, and best wishes. x

very sad to hear it when Malc visited, not to mention gob-smacked!Wishing strength and happiness to all of you.
Big hug,
PS. could do with a large latte at Cosi (?)

I'm so sorry to hear you're going through this. I hope you have some way of spilling emotions... if not on this here blog, then on a piece of paper that can be shredded and burnt. Sometimes it can help a lot.

Hope you're okay!!!

Phew, I have bee very worried about your absence from your blog and I am relieved to see you back, even though it is obviously under sad circumstances. Sorry that you have had to endure this heartache, but if everyone is coping well with it, then it obviously was for the best. I hope to see you around more now. We are leaving for Ireland on the 1st of April next year.
