Hey girls,

Wow it has been too damn long so time for a bit of an update methinks...

Ok, still single, going through with the divorce, can't wait for that to be done with. Should be finalised in May, I'll be counting down the days.

Leaving Nick was the best thing I've done so far. He was abusive fromt he very start, first with words and then physically. It's been a rough road but I really don't miss him and I have survived.

I still have some sort of thing going on with this other guy, basically there was someone I'd liked for a long time and about a month after I left Nick we hooked up and things just got insane, all sorts of drama there....ugh.

Anyway, we are STILL on again, off again. Dunno what the deal is. He's two years my junior so I give him a bit of slack, and he's had a few deaths in close circles so he's in a pretty bad headspace right now. He had two funerals this week to go to and he's gone very quiet this week. I'm playing it by ear and hoping for the best at present, but I'm very wary of getting into another toxic relationship so I have no high expectations.

I'm still working at the same job about 15 mins walk from Flinders street stationa nd I just love it. Love the work, love the people and feel very stable there, finally! I never thought I'd be able to say that about any job, but I suppose removing a lot of streess at home has helped me at work too, but it really is a fabulous job.

Cherie is with Nick and I miss her a lot. I've got Poppy with me and I'm still living with my parents at this point. I would love to have both of my doggies with me, but that is how they were happiest - Cherie gets along better with Nick's parent's dogs and my brothers Labxborder collie abosolutely dotes on Poppy and at the end of the day their happyness is what is important.

I am so happy to have his family out of my life. Ugh they are mental. Again, can't wait for the divorce. It always felt like I was married to his mother as much as him, and don't even get me started on the extortion with the house again.....thank goodness I don't hold any of that to my name, I have nothing to do with it any more - bliss! And no more attacks.

I haven't done too much with myself. I sold the yaris, cleared my loan there and now only owe my parents a few grand which I will easily pay off in the next few months. I kick around in a beat-up 80's Prelude now, but she did her big end bearing last week so I'm currently carless and rushing around organising repairs. I'm also getting my bike licence and buying a bike in the next 6-9 months, can't wait for that! I'm so sick of commuting and public transport sucks even more. Yes I was caught with those cancellations last week, lol!

Other than that, I'm planning another big holiday/trip in about 12 months, don't know what I'll do or where I'll go yet, but I want to do it. There's suggestions of a road trip with friends to QLD that I'm all over, and I'm dying to check out Europe and maybe the US when I can.

I've been doing a fair bit of art and still have a few novels on the go, I'm happy to show you some pictures, let me dig them up!

I've missed you guys a bunch!

Ok I'm done now wink.gif haha!


P.S: Turns out the mental issues were post-traumatic stress, and yeah, I'm ok smile.gif
