Best friends and welcome strangers

So the loveliest thing has happened: I’m friends with my husband again! Not strained, tense ‘friends’ but actual genuine friends. We’re not getting back together - the divorce is still going ahead - but we are going on holiday together as we’d originally planned earlier this year (with the seven-year-old and another friend) and at last we’re chatting about normal things instead of our imploded marriage.

It’s such a relief to know that 21 years of friendship haven’t come to an end. Though he has been teasing me that Terry White is my new BFF. (Sorry Terry. You can be my second best.)

Speaking of friends: thanks to everyone who connected with me on LinkedIn. So many names I didn’t know! And some I did. Looking at LinkedIn gives me a sense of realisation, like ‘Oh, THIS is why everyone else has a 9-5 and my “day job” life is only just starting!’ Better late than never though - and I love my job so much, I never want to leave.

So yeah: good times, and better times ahead, I think, with so many lovely people in my life. ❤️❤️❤️


  1. That's always good. And staying friends after a breakup, let alone a divorce, is a rare thing indeed.

    1. Thank you hon. I’m really pleased about it.
