Squeezed

We are nearing crunch time, with regard to my request to extend financial support. Today I have had the alarming news that my solicitor now needs yet more funds, on account, as security for the hearing scheduled on 22nd December, for which she has appointed a ('relatively junior' and...

Momentum a bit too momentous?

Dearest is getting restless again. Now that the dust has settled after his 94-year-old mother's death in August, he wants to start planning things to do next year. (I struggle to keep up). The latest 'thing to do' is to go to the races in July. He'd said before that he would take me one day, and I... Sign in to see full entry.

Life with the 'boy'

Various little interchanges this week have made me wonder if there will ever be any progress, but let's hope. Stepson, getting ready for tennis, or squash - it doesn't matter which - suddenly burst out loudly in his calling-out, sing-song way that reminds me of a three year old wanting attention,...

Five o'clock already and where did the afternoon go...

I think at times this journal overlaps with my other one (Go ye), but that's not really surprising when, as I go about my many domestic duties and wonder what I am doing with my life, I spend so much time in silent contemplation, which equates to prayer. Someone dear to me said to me recently that... Sign in to see full entry.

A toothless tale

Last Tuesday I took my mother to the dentist for a tooth extraction. She was very good, shaking all over but being brave, and she has coped with it very well at the age of 84. It has taken us quite a while to get her to trust dentists again, and this is just the third of several visits before she...

Cat among the pigeons

Well. I've well and truly done it now. I decided to file for a review of the original consent order with my ex husband. I gave him the opportunity to do the decent thing and make a last payment at the beginning of October but he has stuck to his guns and says he has finished as of the beginning of...

Hrrrmph

I'm angry now. Well, more annoyed than angry but I can't say, to my loved one, how infuriating it is to have something we are watching terminated because he feels it isn't okay for his son to watch (poor baby is bored with it). He has a TV in his own room so why can't he go in there?We're now going... Sign in to see full entry.

I need my mojo back

...don't I? These last few posts are not me. I used to bounce back quite quickly after a bout of lethargy so I need to take myself in hand. We are away next week, walking in the Dales. I don't care if it rains. I will just enjoy being away with Dearest, in the middle of nowhere in his beloved... Sign in to see full entry.

Curry night

Life should be settling down to something a bit more normal, now that we have had Granny's funeral service and are beginning to get over the tiredness. So why am I so subdued, in myself? I am outwardly cheerful and can still laugh, but behind it all I'm uncomfortable, quietly of course. I have... Sign in to see full entry.

If I thought last week was bad...

This was so much worse, in terms of complete disruption but this isn't in any way a complaint. On Monday we got the news from the care home that 94-year old 'Grr-rr-anny' (whom I wrote about when she was still in her own home and was occasionally beastly to me) was failing. Dearest had told me on... Sign in to see full entry.
