Ch-ch-ch-changes... (yes, you should now be singing David Bowie in your head)

Well. Despite my last post about becoming a better blogger, I haven't.  I do have good reason though.  My life has been turned upside down and inside out and my heart is broken.  The King has left.  Sadly he does not feel for me the way he once did and so the decision was made to separate while we are still good friends and can be amicable for the kids.  Staying together would have led to resentment, hate, possible cheating, hurt, all the bad, nasty icky stuff that we don't want to have happen.  So that is where we are. 

So now this blog will be all about my new challenge.  How to survive as a single Mum with two children.  How to get through this, well let's be honest, bloody awful time, and to come out the other end stronger and so much more self sufficient.  I won't lie to you, I'm scared, very scared.  It's going to be tough, I'm going to have to be even more thrifty to make sure that we get by.  And it's not just about the money side of things, emotionally this will be really difficult too, for both the kids and for me.

So where I am at right now is trying to figure out my finances.  I've finally got an idea from Centrelink for what I'll receive from them so now I can do my budget.  I also need to have a "big proper grown up talk" with the King to sort things out fairly and properly too. 

Bear with me, I'll be back to blogging properly again soon, and I'll be learning lots and lots of new tips as well.

The King is gone, Long Live the Queen!!!
