I have so much to write about, so many fun and wonderful things that happened with my sister but life is busy. I have no idea why I ever thought going back to college as a single mum could be a good idea cos my blog is suffering people, suffering. Everything else is fine but not the blog.

 Something happened at school the other evening and it made me giggle, a lot. I went with a classmate to the copy centre and another classmate was there and asked if we were married. SAY WHAT? I said no we were not and that I don't have a husband, I have an un-husband. She then said she was very sorry. This is a typical response and I don't get it. There is no corpse, there is no reason for this terrible sadness as a response to my comment that I am un-married. I did not, in my eyes, have a failed marriage, I am, in fact, having a very wonderful and happy divorce.

 I was not the victim of anything, I choose to make a decision that has empowered me and given me back my life. I have not been this happy in a very very long time. My girls are flourishing under my single parenting and all is well.

 So please don't feel sorry for me, you can clean my house or wash my car, actually you can't cos I am so damned picky but DO NOT feel sorry for me. Things might be a little pinchy in the wallet department but I am working bloody hard to sort that out long term. My seester says she hasn't seen me this happy and calm in years. Calm, me calm? She used that word. i think it translates to not uptight as calm would be a stretch. She also said that the girls are very very obviously absolutely fine.

Signed, living my happily ever after.


  1. Well said Dawn! Your seester is will never be "calm"! Can't wait to hear what's going on.

  2. When I met you back in April, I could see you were happy. I could totally tell you and your girls were flourishing. :)

  3. I'm glad you are happy, Dawn! I guess if one hasn't been in a marriage that's not working, one can't imagine a divorce that actually makes one happier than remaining married. I have another friend in a similar situation, and I'm afraid I said something along those lines to her. She's not a close friend, so I really didn't understand her situation. Just keep doing what you need to do. :)
