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.

Things in boxes

There’s an awful lot of boxes in my loft: boxes of records, photographs, our antique dinner service, university files. As I packed our Christmas decorations away for another year, I realised just how many boxes remain to be sorted and shared out between us.

It’s not a daunting prospect but it shows how entwined our lives were and whilst the paperwork is nearly completed, there is still a long way to go to separate it all out.

I’m not really sure how to “do” the boxes. Maybe I’ll spend next Saturday sorting out what obviously belongs to James – at least that will mean some of it is out of the way. Then I can have a conversation with him on Sunday when he brings the children home about some of the other items. His grandparents’ antique vase is up there – I know James has never liked it, hence it’s not on display – but I’m quite partial to it. But how on earth do we share out the photographs and some of the wedding gifts?
