And so Life Continues

Well the new year has started with a bang.  The holidays are over and kids are back at school.  My youngest has started high school now and for the first time in about 23 years, I only have to go to one school each day.  Never thought I would see the day!

Besides that, as you all know from my previous post, I am getting divorced.  Hubby and I have reached an amicable agreement and we are working together for the good of the kids and I suppose our relationship as well.  So I am really pleased we can be grown up about it all.  We saw the divorce lawyer last week and he is drawing up the relevant documents.

I am currently staying in a little cottage near to home.  Must admit I quite like being alone.  I was terrified of being alone and am amazed at how well I have adapted.  Now that we have made the decision to get divorced, I have had to start thinking a little more long term about where I am going to live, so I started looking at places to rent and quite honestly I was not particularly impressed with anything I saw.

I spent Saturday looking at the property section of the newspaper and found a lovely 3 bedroomed apartment for sale.  It is brand new – just been built and I have made an offer on it.  In theory I move in on the 1st of April.  The biggest challenge here is I need to find the money to furnish it.  I am really excited about it!  In theory this is what my estate will look like (hope so anyway)

I’m travelling for the rest of the week and will hopefully have some nice pics to share on my return.

  1. Sounds exhilarating and exciting. The new start, the adapting to aloneness, the new home. I know this is a bittersweet time, but it's full of promise and hope. Have safe travels!

  2. Oh furnishing it is the best part! Go to markets and thrift stores and garage sales (do yall have those). You will be amazed at how inexpensive and good quality things people get rid of. Safe travels!

  3. I'm just so glad that both you are doing this without the fighting you sometimes hear about. It's a tough time mentally as you're now having to do this on your own, but you're a strong woman and I'm sure all will be well.

    Take your time furnishing your place, so that you get it right rather than buying a load of stuff and changing your mind within a couple of months. I'm sure it will be a sad but exciting time, starting a home afresh again. And all the best with buying a property.
