“If some lives form a perfect circle, others take shape in ways we cannot predict or always understand.”
My life has definitely never taken the shape of a perfect circle – from getting pregnant at 19, becoming a single mother at 20, meeting Liam two years later and having another child together, and then getting married…it's been quite the rollercoaster! Ten days ago my life took another twist when Liam and I decided to separate and he moved out. It’s been a while coming, hence the lack of posting on the blog these past few months. I don’t want to go into detail about it here, but I just wanted to mention it, say that we’re all as ok as we can be, and start trying to move on.
I'm not promising that I'll suddenly start writing daily again (did I ever do that??) as sleep and long chats with friends are definitely still taking priority, but I do really miss writing here! Weather permitting, me, the children, and my little sister are off to Bath for the Christmas market this weekend; and I received the most amazing foodie penpal parcel this month; so I definitely have some things I want to share with you in the near future, it's just finding the time and energy to share them. After Liam & I told Izzy last Friday about our decision, she had a few nights of not going to sleep until 10pm, and then when she settled back down Toby got ill and for the last two mornings he has been coming into me wide awake at 5.30am! And of course I am having to deal with it all on my own now, so not much sleep around here! I am very lucky to have supportive family and friends, it makes such a difference.
One of my friends has also been having a difficult couple of weeks so we have been spending lots of time together trying to put the world to rights! Another quote we like is…
This definitely isn’t the end of my story, but maybe it can be (yet another!) new beginning.
What are your favourite quotes? Any positive or inspiring ones to share with me??
Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers, and I hope everyone in the UK is keeping safe with the current weather. We had quite bad flooding locally yesterday, and Izzy’s school was closed, but things seem to be back to normal – for now at least – I’m keeping my fingers firmly crossed that we don’t get anymore heavy rain!
