A family of three now
On Sunday (notice the irony here, Father's Day) John went to stay with his parents for a while. Mutual decision you could say. I won't go into all the details here in such a public place but those of you who know me a bit will know that we've been struggling as a couple for a very long time.
It may be a permanent situation, it may not be. I just don't know. I do know that a major stress factor complicating my life is now at least out of sight. I am in limbo but do know it is the right thing for me at this stage. No more frustration, no more resentment, no more arguments. That's a good thing right? So for now scrapping is going on the back burner and I have to focus on ME and my kids. Not saying I won't be doing any, just not putting any pressure on myself to create something wonderful and publish worthy all the time (not that I get any picked up anyway). However I do acknowledge the benefits of 'scrap therapy' and once my head is in a better place I'm sure I'll be doing plenty of that. But for the moment I'm focussing on the practical things like money and stuff.
Had a very emotional bedtime cuddle with Thomas today, gosh this is hard.
