New Year, New Single Parent


Holy moly 2016… SO much happened… some good and some not so good, but I LOVE New Years Eve and the slate being wiped clean for another year.  Another year with nothing negative in it yet, no mistakes and no disappointments.  SO MUCH POTENTIAL FOR AWESOMENESS.  I’m definitely ready for it to be 2017.

This past year I lost touch with my blog… I took a very unintentional break but honestly it’s done me good and I’m excited to be back writing again.  I missed documenting a lot of things but really my heart wasn’t in it because life.  Ya know?

It’s horrid to write but James and I separated at the end of September.  It’s sad to write that and I do feel sad although I know it was the right thing to do. It wasn’t working, despite best efforts and we are slowly figuring out the logistics of life in this new way.  So far I think it’s going as well as can be expected… it’s hard and complicated, but we don’t hate or dislike one another, neither of us is the villain or the victim and I hope we can get to a point where we are good friends.  I’m hoping we can make moves to improve on things a little with this new year but the bottom line is that we will always coparent the boys calmly, carefully and lovingly.

Things are on the up… it can’t get any worse right?  Aside from this lump of life challenge, there have been a lot of good things in 2016 which I will expand on in a different post 🙂

Small steps.

    Good luck for 2017! I’m also a single mum of two and I’ve never been happier! Sometimes it’s better being seperated and working together as a team than staying together for the sake of the kids x
