Facebook revealed a photo of the ex today, uploaded by a friend, of him and his first wife at their wedding. There was some banter about him holding his stomach in and a comment from someone I have seen in the last few months saying ‘ how nice to see….’ (name of ex-wife).
It hurt, and here is why. That marriage ended in tears and then very, very sadly a few months later in the death of his wife.
The person who commented about his wife, was once a bit unkind about her, to ME.
Since that marriage, we were married, but it seemed as if the last ten years just DO NOT exist.
So, here I am getting all upset and hurt, then I started thinking how very odd to put up a photo that is so OLD. He looks nothing like that now. It was not (according to him) a happy relationship, but there was the photo for all to see. What on earth was the point?
So weird, or is it me just thinking that?
Once I manned up, I started, tentatively tackling my ever growing ‘to do’ list. More stuff for the charity shop, and they are coming with the van next week to take some of the bulkier bits of furniture….
Student Finance has agreed to lend me money – never thought I would be happy to be in debt, but it is going to seriously help over the next few months. I emptied my pound coin and penny jar and had over £50 which was banked.
I am now about to start more work and have a gym date at uni in the morning before hitting the library and seeing the head of the program.
