First blog post

I’ve started this blog as a catharsis process. I recently discovered that my husband of 10 years (partner for 17yrs) has been having an affair and I’m now on the rollercoaster of divorce and all the emotions, feelings and work that it encompasses.

I am also training for the Great North Run, and it was whilst running, the Bon Jovi track ‘Someday I’ll be Saturday Night’ struck a chord with me. It has been two months since I found out, and whilst it’s getting easier, I still feel like a Monday but I do know that I too will one day be ‘Saturday Night’. It was during this run that I decided to start writing about my experiences, and I hope to look back on this one day and see that I did indeed get through it and be stronger and better off for it.

I’m no therapist or life coach, but if my ramblings help anyone else who is going through something similar or if I can support anyone else it will be amazing.

My Dr asked me to keep a mood diary as part of my stress relief, and I thought why not expand on that. So here goes, what will follow will be my daily struggles, triumphs and the start of a new chapter in my life. I also have two very spirited, bright children, who may feature now and then 🙂
