    I am still here , just. Carpets are down now and the whole place looks light and bright . There are lots of changes I would like to make but all in good time. Need to sort out vertical blinds this week, there are some up but they are very old . Today I am just moving a few more things to new place and then having a rest.

    In RL I had another curve ball thrown my way on Friday , not unexpected but definitely shocked me. I have to move on from the incident but feel greatly saddened that the situation came to the end it did. However the one thing that can't change are my memories .

    Today is payday, present landlord is only asking for one weeks rent, so the rest will pay my rent on new place. September will be the first real payday that a new budget will apply. I have also had a small pay rise this month , all money welcome .

    The only big expense left to pay with moving is the removal man , next Saturday. I do now feel after Friday that this move is the next phase of my life and the fresh start I need.

    Shopping list to make but trying not to buy much food . Next week I have GS again Wednesday and Thursday, but not having either of them Friday , to much to do. Wednesday we are going into our big town to a museum that will bore me , but GS will be delighted. Only 2 days in work as well?

    Thanks to everyone who reads my ramblings.

    Sometimes you have to let things drop for the good of everyone , this I have realised is a big deal to me . I am like a bull in a china shop and won't listen and do as I think right . However for once I am going to do the right thing and walk away.

    This will make no sense to anyone but me , but it feels better writing it down.

    My aim for the week now is to survive it and move next Saturday.

    I think you are right to walk away Sunshine. If you can't change the situation then it's healthy to move on from it.

    Good luck with your move to the new flat and good news about the small pay rise :).
