Yesterday was an interesting day, my daughter worked with me during the day, while she may not be the most productive worker I have employed she is better company than many. While waiting for her I spent a little time with my wife, I should stress that we are still on reasonably friendly terms, or at the very least polite communicative terms.
It seems that she is having a good year, for the first time in years she has started to wear make up on a regular basis, has lost around a stone already this year, which equates to two sizes meaning that she can now and does shop for clothes in Primark. She has joined a choir and started going out with friends. All in all she seems to be enjoying life making the most of her opportunities. I am very happy for her, these are all things that I have been trying to encourage her to do for years. It's just a shame that it took leaving me for her to feel enabled to do all this.
This all gives me some rather mixed feelings, pleased that she is letting herself bloom a last, but disappointment that I am not involved. But then nothing else about my life is particularly simple so why should this be.
Whilst I may e morning the loss of my own marriage I would like to add my congratulations to the many others to all those who are getting married today, whatever your gender.
