So the ironing is done...

I wanted to get it out of the way before we went off on Thursday - I hate things hanging around so just did it all. Whilst I am happy to do my partner's ironing, and had one or two of my own things to do, it didn't seem quite right to leave stepson's two shirts. My partner always thanks me for doing...

Losses and gains

Bit of a meltdown at 5am... it's been uncomfortably hot at night, and with the birds singing at daybreak, currently around 4, 4:30, I haven't been getting much sleep. Add to this an uncomfortable discussion about what he can and can't handle as regards my family and my sister's 40th wedding... Sign in to see full entry.

Yo-Yo

I used to write about all sorts of things, even when I was going through a very tough marital breakdown. What I am finding now is that all I am writing about is relationship ups and downs. To my mind, after more than four years together with me being at his house for his convenience and his son's, I... Sign in to see full entry.

Survived the Holiday, Not So Sure About the Homecoming

Apart from some quite awful weather we found enough to do for the week in northern Spain.. cave paintings just one of the discoveries, and the Gugenheim at Bilbao. Mostly, we just ate as the locals do, late afternoon, and for a long time. This is the country that invented the siesta, after all.... Sign in to see full entry.

Hols again

After a lovely few days on our own in Sorrento - lovely in spite of the less-than-perfect weather - we just had time to unpack, do laundry, visit the Chelsea Flower Show as we do every year, see my mother (me), see his mother (him), and then pack again for a week in Santander. I think most people in... Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes it works. .

I was full of apprehension after dropping my daughter at the station. She'd been ranting at me and saying how yet again we were arguing on the way to the train... For some reason and being a bit tongue in cheek I said she mustn't forget to open the door before I stop the car like last time...... Sign in to see full entry.

Relative calm

I'm beginning to wonder if my daughter is seriously disturbed. She's nearly 32. She has ranted at me yet again, after coming down from her nap and ready to go to the station shortly and attempting, in her way, to say she understands why it would upset me to have to not see my partner when she visits...

A Quiet Panic

Something was obviously up, because the 'xx' at the end of his emails suddenly stopped, the day before yesterday. I don't know why, really. It's not as if I can help my children's attitude. I had let him know they would be away this weekend. He hadn't commented. He has come back a day early from his... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm still here

Hello again. I'm conscious, more and more, of the passage of time... who would have thought that a little operation would put me so much off beam? I am well. I can drive. My foot swells up quite a bit, nearly four months on, but we had a week away in Falmouth last month and I managed the walking... Sign in to see full entry.
