Time for a catch-up

Well – a few things have happened that have altered my life path!

My husband moved out of the family home in July this year and although we undertook counselling, and I thought things were heading in the reconciliation direction, he dropped the bombshell last week that he will not be coming home.

I was angry but now I am just sad and disappointed that he found it necessary to take such a drastic step away from his family.  I hope he can find the peace and life satisfaction he is looking for and in the meantime we will build a new kind of relationship – one that I don’t really have a name for yet.

I have made the decision not to go on a benefit and my workplace will do what they can to give me extra hours.  I can probably fit in an extra 5 a week, most weeks so it’s all good.

I am feeling somewhat in control of my own future as a single parent, knowing there will be days when I fall apart and there will be days that I wonder if it was ever any other way.

All in all, I am OK and Liam will adjust.  Onwards and upwards and drinks on Fridays, I say!


  1. Have a drink on me.
    You'll get by, I am sure.
    Best of luck, Esther!
