    Hey my lovely DFW's,

    I'll be back here as a regular poster soon enough I promise, I'm gonna need you all to help me through this rather rubbish time in my life

    Wee update is that the ex husband (first time I've said that) has a new flat, he came to pick some stuff up yesterday when I was out but might be coming for the rest of it tonight.

    17 years together, 7 years married and at 34 years old that is a significant amount of time to have a person in your life then all of a sudden they are just gone.

    I'm still struggling emotionally right now and have made the decision to move back with my Mum, this will work out great as we get on so well anyway.

    No point both us us living alone 5 minutes from each other, we're gonna keep each other company and split the bills so we are both a bit better off financially

    Will be back soon with some new goals.

    Yay so I made some money selling shoes on Ebay and cashing out on One poll.

    Treated myself to some holiday clothes, bought my sister a pumpkin pandora charm and transferred £30.63 over to my bank account.

    Will use that £30.63 to pay of some of my Barclaycard - BC when it clears which should be tomorrow.

    16.04.2018 To Do List
    Morning lovelies,

    Busy weekend and an expensive one.

    Went to Edinburgh to see Chicago Blues Brothers on Friday, was sooooooo good!

    Later on in the night Mum called to say my niece wasn't too well so taxi to the hospital, stayed there till about 5am while they checked her out, said it was a viral infection.

    Main thing is she was alright!

    My list for today is;

    * Check SBCC balance
    * Scan any receipts from the weekend
    * Find a deal for a meal out on Sunday with the work peeps
    * Surveys

    Dxxx

    She is right as rain now so she is.

    Aw I'm doing alright, just trying to keep myself busy really.

    Had a bad couple of days there with just really missing him & feeling down about it but that is gonna happen from time to time I suppose.

    Just need to let the feelings come & go when they do.

    Feeling better today though so that's a good thing.

    My wardrobe came & is all built, I swear its that big I could live in it!! Finish work at 2pm today so home to get my stuff all organised.

    Awww Dolly. Hope you're not feeling pressured to post.
    Do what you need to do for you. You are loved by Everybody posts or no posts.

    It takes a long time to deal with what you have been put through. Hope you are getting through it but can imagine it's not going to be quick. xxx

    Och don't worry about it monz.

    Just been lurking on here mostly the last wee while.

    Think when I am up to it I am going to just start a new diary full of lists for life, it's time to start making some plans for myself.

    Yay sounds good, will keep you posted.
