About

Dear Reader,

I have to admit that this is not the first blog I have ever written, In fact there have been several in the past, all covering various topics and although each was created with good intentions, each one lost it’s sparkle and faded into the internet for one reason or another. This time, however, I hope that I can remain inspired and committed, and allow this to become ‘the one’.

I should probably explain what prompted me to start another blog after my last attempts have been so unsuccessful and I have to warn you that although I don’t aim to come across as a wounded woman full of self-pity, that is probably exactly what is about to happen. The long and short of it is this; I got dumped. Unceremoniously and as unexpectedly as sunshine in Manchester. But it’s better if I start at the beginning.

At the tender age of 18 I met my first and only (to date!) love. We navigated student years together, on rations of Sainsbury’s basics food and cheap cider and marched into adulthood, determined to master ‘domestic bliss’. And we did. We planned a family and went window shopping for engagement rings. And just as the moment came to sign on the dotted line for our first mortgage, he decided he had had enough.

And so I find myself living back at home with the parents, 2 sisters, the dog, cat and goldfish. I’ve taken up yoga, lost 3 stone and started keeping a journal. Anything to fill my time. And I suppose this blog is an extension of that. At the end of my ‘Bridget Jones’ phase, I’m now ready to get back out there – re evaluate my life plan and forge a new path for myself. I expect there will be many mishaps along the way, dating disasters and embarrassing moments galore! And I invite you to join me on this journey…

All my love,

L x

    Have been following your blog for a while but, for some weird reason, had never read your About page…OMG! I got unceremoniously dumped too (as unexpectedly as sunshine in Chester, where my boyfriend was from, to be precise). We were friends that turned into lovers and were on the verge of moving in together (we’d agreed that I should quit my job in Greece and move to the UK) & commit when he decided to trot on along, no explanation, no nothing :( This came as the culmination of a string of disastrous relationships do I’ve kind of given up on men, tbh (not that there’s many decent ones out there). It will be fun to follow you on your journey and live/date vicariously through you :) Wish you the best of luck and I’m here if you ever want to vent… XOXO

      It’s so lovely of you to get in touch! Despite the not so nice circumstances, it’s nice to speak to someone who has been in a similar situation- sometimes it feels like you are the only one! It makes you wonder why we bother with men at all?!! I’m not sure I am the best person to offer any advice, but of course if you ever want someone to chat to about it all you know where I am!! Xx
