    Its okay dont worry although i miss the dogs loads but i am realising more and more how bad my life was with her. And also the fact it had a huge impact on my mental health.

    Being here i am not alone i have rekindled friendships with old school friends again, i am weight training 3-4 days a week going running on weekends. Money has being tight but come january i am starting with stepchange at 300 pm again.

    I was basically a permeant stress head over everything there:money, having no me time,
    the relationship being knackered, the neighbour issues, the fact with the dogs and around the
    house she did nothing i was a dog walker and house wife etc etc She would hoover maybe 1-2
    times a week/put the odd load of washing in but put it in then leave it in the machine hours.


    Even though i was doing nights 4-5 night shifts a week she would never pick me up from work so i had too spend 90mins getting home etc etc

    The more and more i look at it now i spent 5-6 years of being took the mickey out of. She would take me in but upon getting home after ten hour night shifts i had 2 2-3 mile dog walks too do she
    occasionally would do one or two a week.


    I cycled between periods of managing doing everything for 4-5 months but then mentally i would have a break down it happened loads maybe 5-6 bouts then i would get myself well return too work then it would happen again. The body is a brilliant thing but it does just shut down when its had enough.

    I love the dogs too bits and i think i would of coped with them better but she wasnt supportive enough, she was either never there (running around after her family) @work or she was sitting in front of the tele playing games constantly on her phone. I would say too her i am going too clean upstairs she would then !!!!!! off too her mams. So i would end up cleaning the house top too bottom on my own. I dont know if any of you has ever seen how much fur comes out of a husky, put it into you tube.


    Ex related rant over sorry lol close friends have said what happened and i have explained and alot have said i needed the tattoo with the word mug on it.

    I can always remember one argument it was a baking sunny day, i was picking up after the dogs in the back garden, then i had mowed both lawns back and front, i then got in the shower and sat down for ten mins she then rang me because she had !!!!!!ed off too her mams and asked me too change the laundry and if i had cleaned the kitchen. No help, no she was sitting in her mams while i did everything. I went light understandably our garden at the back was huge think 100 foot length by 30-40 wide easy job


    good taste in music JW popps if you like the pilots get on youtube and give the Stone Temple Pilots mtv unplugged session a look its amazing Scott's vocal range is unreal. I nevsr was lucky enough too see STP live but i did see Velvet Revolver live and they were awexome

    I did wonder whether as things started settling down you would start to see positives emerging from the situation - I'm glad that's the case. View it as a lucky escape perhaps.

    I agree with EssexHebridean - hindsight is so often a great healer!!

    I saw VR a few years ago too - so good! I don't really go out to gigs anymore, which is a shame but I do love live music so I will take you up on your MTV Unplugged suggestion

    I will post again later on tomorrow thank you everyone who has commented on my new journal so far your awesome guys.

    I'm glad you are getting some perspective on your relationship, it certainly is a big part of the moving on process and will help you think about what kind of person you want to be with in the future. It reminded me of some of my old boyfriends, boys/men that I first went out with solely because they were good looking. (I know - how shallow! ) Once we were involved, I'd overlook bad behavior or make excuses when I really should have ended things. Once it becomes normal, you don't even see it until you are out again. Luckily I found my hub after several disastrous relationships. The first thing that struck me about him is how kind he was, to everyone - and especially to older people and animals.

    Did you ever buy your new guitar? The talk of the unplugged shows reminded me about it.

    I'm so glad that you're feeling better. Sometimes you can't see what's happening because you're in the middle.

    I saw Alice in Chains in the 93(ish). They were really good, I never saw STP though

    I know what you mean. Kurt Cobain was the first person of my generation to die (him and River Phoenix). I had seen Nirvana in concert so made it a bit more real. It wasn't just someone on television. I felt a similar way when David Bowie died.

    haha its the way it has too be Smolly i am back too work now so my survey income what ever i get half is going into savings the other half off debt.

    My new year plan is as follows

    1) Learn too drive
    2) Learn too drive
    3) Learn too drive

    I have just renewed my bus and train tickets for work and it has set me back close too 150 quid, i dont begrudge paying it but what does annoy me is the time waste. An old school friend took me for a coffee pre work coffee/franky and bennies the other day. From mine too work it was around 30-35 mins all be told, doing the same journey on public transport is 1hour 50mins too 2hours. Plus because of working in tyne and wear and living in co durham i have too buy 2 different travel cards. And due too being a night shift work i have too leave on a sunday at 7.15pm even though i dont start till 1030pm as the public transport is so bad after 8pm.

    Public transport sucks

    Well today i hope your all sitting down for this no surveys


    Today has being a workout then chillax day, money wise all is good, the ex sold my sons old bmx on ebay that was 39 quid. Let her keep the 19 and i pocketed 20 quid, i have an email from music magpie saying an xbox i sold the 36 quid is on the way too my bank.

    I bought a few dvds in sainsburies yesterday 2 of the rubbish ones are on ziffit already lol. I am not skint which i very very weird thing lol i have triple figure balance the only thing is it has too last till the 23rd jan.

    Yesterday was quite a nice day for me i went running 7 miles from Consett in Co Durham right in towards wear-dale. It cleared an hour and 15 mins of boredom and home and also made me think a lot but i still havent decided what too do.

    Now regarding the making me think bit, clearing my head etc i have a quandary. Blokes on here i apologize for this post lol

    I got asked out on a date yesterday by an old old old girlfriend. Now the lass in question i dated when i was 15 years old i am now 37 lol the powers of Facebook. She has just split with her husband of 13 years 8 months ago.


    Background for people i have just split with my partner of 11 years. Do i or don't i peeps i have only being single a matter of say 4-5 weeks if that. Not wanting too sound a sexist pig she looks a bonny lass, i just don't know if its too soon.



    Finances

    I am at work i have done 3 opinion outpost little surveys and i am 2.50 richer yay. I have being booted from 2 out of 3 uk toluna surveys so thats another 1500 going on my balance in 24hours.

    Go on the date! It's not a commitment for life just a night out. Enjoy it! I met my current husband six weeks after I left my first husband. We've been together 14 years now. It was a totally casual thing to start. No commitment from either of us. I didn't want anything serious and he didn't want anyone with baggage.

    Running is great for thinking. It's the lack of distractions.

    Why is it too soon? You're not hurting anyone and you're meeting up with an 'old friend' for a catch up. Go and have some fun!

    Yeah ano your right its just a bit weird and i haven't being on a date with a lass in 12 years plus she is my old childhood sweet heart, we dated when i was a lot younger.

    "Get busy living or get busy dying thats god damn right!"

    Yesterday people will laugh at this i finished work at the usual 645am my mate from work offered as a one off too drop me off in North Shields so i could get the metro home. It was a long long night at work last night net result i fell asleep on the train and woke up 6 stops further along than i should of.

    This working nights again after being on the sick for so long is taking a tiny bit getting used too.
