Missing them

If you’re a reader of my blog and keep up to date with things, you will know that I had the kids down for Christmas. While they were down I had to pull the camera out and grab a few snaps of them. For now I only have the two photo to upload as I’m at work. When I get around to it I’ll upload some more.

Merry Christmas to me!

Today I received one of the best presents ever: 11 days of time with my children.

I travelled to Winchester today and picked Ryan and Chloé up at 3pm. We stopped at Cobham services for a toilet break and had a long awaited coffee caramel frappuccino which I shared with the kids. Chloé doesn’t like it so she had a cup of water. We finally got back to Kent by 7.

I’m so happy that I get the next few days with them.

A lot has changed

As you can guess by the title of this post a lot has changed. Sadly I split with Katie in August after 10 years of being together. I wont go into details, but lets just say that the break up went quite badly. As a result I am now living with my parents in Sittingbourne with no job.

Sadly since the breakup I have only seen my children once, which was in November. As you may or may not know, my children are the purpose of my life. To see them as little as I do is very hard for me. I am comfortable with myself enough to say that I find myself crying because I miss them so much. They were a huge part of my life and i miss them greatly.

We have both agreed that I will be picking the kids up on Christmas day and bring them back to my Mum’s until they go back to school on the 6th January, which is awesome news, because it would have been almost two months since I last saw them. Having no job means I have to rely on Katie to provide petrol, which means I don’t get to see them anywhere as near as much as I would like to.

Hopefully all goes well and I manage to get a job soon, because if I don’t I wont be able to keep my car for much longer as it’s costing £300 a month just to keep it sitting in the driveway, which thankfully I’m not paying for! So far I have applied for just over 90 jobs with no success. Heres hoping the new year provides for me because I’m sick of not working and I really want to keep my car!

 

Learning how to ride

We took Chloé out for the afternoon to teach her how to ride her bike with out stabilisers. I found a nice stretch of path near the St. Catherine’s Park and ride car park that gets hardly used.

She’s had a while without them by herself, but I thought it was about time to actually teach her how to ride a bike properly. So I packed it in the car, picked Kate from work and headed down to the Park and Ride.
