The Reluctant Divorcee

Brought to you by SA Law

I’ve never considered writing a blog before; it’s the kind of thing other people do. I’m more of a fact-based person but things are so all over the place at the moment that writing down my thoughts and feelings suddenly feels like the right thing to do. It helps me to organise my thoughts a bit, and who knows, someone else might read this who’s going through the same thing. So here it is: My blog, by Rebecca Green.

There’s always a sting in the tail

It’s Easter Sunday. Rabbits are hidden around the house – fluffy ones and chocolate ones, not real ones although Lottie would love a pet bunny! As soon as the children wake up, they’ll want to do their traditional Easter hunt: I love to watch them racing around excitedly. As I type I think about the difference a year makes. This time last year, I was worrying about Lottie’s birthday and how it would work – would James want to be there? Would we argue and spoil her day? This year I feel so much more in control and because of that, so much more able to welcome James to join the celebration.

There’s always a sting in the tail though. James called to talk to the children and then asked to speak to me. He’s got an opportunity to move to Hong Kong and wants to take it. If he accepts, he would leave in July and be living for at least a year. Amelia is going too and he’d like the children to go over in the Summer holidays for a few weeks. So much for being in control! I’m not sure what to do or say about this one…
