Isn’t it amazing how two weeks away in Northern Spain can make you feel like a new woman. The kids and I have come away with my Mum and Dad and I don’t know if it’s the lovely warm weather or the setting, but I’m feeling really positive about what my future may hold. I know that I still have a way to go in terms of the settlement particularly as things aren’t forthcoming from James, but it feels like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
For the first time in a very long time, I have had the time (and inclination) to read a whole book, plus I’ve been able to sit quietly & watch Lottie and Dylan having fun in the pool together with their Grandad.
Mum and Dad have been brilliant as always, and have given me space to think and contemplate my future. I hadn’t really realised how much of this affects them too, but we’ve had really constructive conversations, and I think we all feel ready to deal with the rest of the practicalities quickly and efficiently.
