Going Home

It’s been a wonderful week in Portugal. It’s gone by too fast.  This time has been good for me. My face is even a healthy colour and I feel at least 10 years younger. According to Raven, I looked younger with each passing day here.  Now I have to go back to reality and the…

A Proper Holiday

Exactly a year ago, we went on a family holiday. Things with barely husband had gotten really bad a few weeks before but I managed to calm things down enough so we could go. I was still desperately trying to fix things, I was scared and broken. The post I managed to publish was called…

Pride

Today is Doncaster Pride and I am here with my mom, in her first ever LGBTQ+ event.  Our relationship has come leaps and bounds over the past couple of weeks and this is the icing on the cake.  Raven would love to be with us but her dad would never allow us to take over…

MIGRAINE

I have been suffering from a crushing migraine since Sunday. I was fine until barely husband came to drop Raven off. We hardly spoke but I am convinced his negative energy caused it. Ugh!  

Money… Again! 

After keeping me awake in his quest for my admission of guilt, barely husband descended to a new low.  Money arguments aren’t new to our playbook. I’m always the one to be financially punished for my ‘shortcomings’, whatever they may be.  This time around, he was trying to charge me £80 for his rental contract…

AROUND IN CIRCLES

Barely husband seems to have chosen to ultimately blame my sexual orientation for the failure of my marriage. For the ones who don’t know, I am Pansexual. He keeps distorting the facts, trying to blame me for not telling him about it when I clearly told him that I had been involved with women before….

A BIT OF GOSSIP

Raven came back from the week with her dad with a bit of gossip. He signed up to a dating website. She wasn’t supposed to find out. A notification popped up while she held his phone playing music in the car. She kept quiet. When I told a couple of friends, initially they were being…

DANCING ON MY OWN

As most of you may already know, I am a big music lover and sometimes post my random playlists. I have made no secret I am a HUGE Pentatonix fan, often rambling about them, their music and what they represent in terms of acceptance. This song, Dancing On My Own, is their first release since member…

KARMA

There are many words that can be used to describe this, depending on personal beliefs. My mom calls it God’s rebalancing, some call it comeuppance, others just deserved fate: I call it Karma. After starting with the lost vouchers, barely husband’s holiday is not up to his standards. Remember I used to book/organise every single…

Away

Raven will be away with her dad for a week. I miss her already.  It’s the first time barely husband books a holiday like this. He’s already lost the vouchers for some event they were going to.  It’s not my business. I’m not there to organise and control. I hope it goes  well.  Last night…

Writing Milestone

This weekend I have finished writing my first Wattpad book. It has been a very long journey, a labour of love, writing a story with a theme so special and important to me. ‘Make Love Your Goal’ has kept me sane in many ways. I could put all my feelings of love and acceptance of the LGBTQ+…
