    Haha I am going on the 8th of August with her and my son. Is no reconciliation for us, I am trying to be politically correct but I had a 19mile walk home last night. Losing my rag and ranting about her is very hard not to do.

    Where are you going and I will think about it lol? Cyprus for us.

    Oh man, it's a shame when anything ends but if you're feeling relieved maybe it wasn't right. Also that's a pretty !!!! move not letting you stay! 19 miles is

    Sorry to hear about this Scott
    If they told you to leave knowing that the only way you would get home was to walk the 19 miles to get there then I think you are well shot of them.

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Dont worry guys i am okay, i am very very relieved being truthful. Re our holiday i am hoping she decides she doesnt want to come. I have my passport and my sons i am sure will not be long, i ordered mine on the 23rd and it came on monday. My sons was ordered 3-4 days later.

    Yeah she has shown her true colours, i have being so supportive over her son leaving for weeks. Then yesterday i said i wasnt coping with it so she told me to leave basically its not going to get any better and i feel sorry for her but some of the troubles she brings on herself, she reacted like well a bloke putting it bluntly get out blahhh blahhhh. I only told her the truth, i wasn't happy i was sick of the arguments etc She didn't like it.

    We had a huge argument on Friday and that big style stuck in my mind,

    Well its nearly bed time for me tour de france highlights then a lie in i think as i am back on nights tomorrow. I have a weird rotation in for 2 then off 1 then back in for 1.

    I am trying to stay up as after tuesdays events i am pretty cut up. Today has being a good day on the survey front 2 payouts on opinion outpost in a day is rare.

    I also pushed swagbuck to 90 points away from payout.

    Earlier i spoke with LNER and they are sending me a cheque regarding the balls up Virgin Trains made with a delay repay.

    Well Swagbucks has paid out for the first time in ages yay.

    I am heading into Durham tomorrow to look at bikes as I miss cycling I know that sounds pathetic but I have a mate pushing me to join a triathlon club. I am running 3 days a week and I have now joined a gym a in durham where I am swimming 2-3 days a week.
    Keeping fit keeps me sane.


    Haha now mentioning sane me and the ex are talking but reconcilation aint gunna happen.

    Are you able to go away together and make the most of the holiday or is that out of the question ?

    Glad the passport came

    Embarrassingly I can't cycle... I'm 27 and somehow managed to go this whole time without riding a bike. It's something I do want to remedy! Not sure how to go about it though as there's not that many cycle routes where I live and traffic gives me the fear!

    Any update on the holiday?

    Yeah me and the ex and my son are still going, i am not talking to the ex she came here on friday night, things happened that shouldnt of and we then ended up arguing. I think she wanted everything to go back to normal and i dont. I am happier alone as sad as it sounds, we were arguing on Wednesday or Thursday before i went to work and the net result was i got into a bit bother at work. I snapped a collegues head off quite nastily when they were !!!! taking and i got grief as i did not handle a complaint call very well.

    Everything could be better Cumbria I am fighting stress and quite low mood, at the minute I am winning just. I am only just coping the only thing that's keeping me up is I am training like a machine. I have joined at gym in durham (work corporate discount helping), the gym has a weights room/sauna/pool/spa/steam room so its really helping. My ex and me are fighting a lot, I am just wanting my time off at work to start as at work I am not coping well.

    I have 6 shifts to do, in tonight and tomorrow then off till Saturday. I then have a 3 day week after that and a rogue day on the 3rd then I am done.


    Survey update 2.50 from opinion outpost came in over the weekend, and I finally received 50 quid from YouGov today the day after my payday gerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    It's a shame that all this stress in your personal life is affecting your work - do you need to see/ speak to the ex before you go on holiday? It might be useful if you can just have radio silence to help you concentrate on getting through work and organised for your holiday and you'll see each other on holiday/ at the airport.

    Better late than never on the 50!
