So while I'm still a porter at the hospital I have changed my shift pattern from days to the more unsociable 2-10pm shift. How has this worked for my turbulent marriage? Wonders, as it happens.

We're no longer living in each others pockets, the rotating days off has afforded me time to do stuff around the house that needs doing, taking care of the children has become a rotational thing thus giving us both some breathing space, we row less, the evenings of my days off we do stuff together as a family and when a Friday, Saturday or whole weekend drops we all do something special together, (from board games, ordering a takeaway, to days out together). We're just generally far nicer to each other. More importantly the children have responded to that as they're both so much happier.

You may not think it the most ideal of solutions and I get it, but home life is peaceful again, loving even. How will this pan out long term? I'v no idea, but as far as solutions go for saving my marriage and bringing some of the spark back goes, well it's working out thus far.

Cheers.

Spoke to the wife earlier (I always phone from work now to say goodnight to the girls). Molly (my eldest) is now going to a friends birthday at TGI Friday so slight change of plan for tomorrow evening. Teenagers!

The little one gets to choose our boardgame for the evening then. No doubt her favourite 'Forbidden Island'.

So, er, yeah, lifes good.

Mrs and I are properly splitting up now, I shall be doing the bulk of my moving out tomorrow

its obviously all pretty raw and shitty, but feels different to last time, more complete almost

we have been perfectly civil up until today when she has been getting really bitchy and mean, no idea what flipped the switch but eh

gotta move in with fam for a couple of months to build up enough liquid cash to do deposit and furniture in one hit, pure nightmare

shes real good at getting you into those traps like, we were chatting and I said, Im not saying this from a point of trying to get back with you, just curious - and she said

"well, I know you wouldnt ask to get back with me, not last time and especially not this time"

and I said, well yes - and shes instantly just mad like

"exactly because you dont care, you dont give a gooseberry fool"

and Im like.. no.. its because I respect your wishes and value myself more than to beg?

ooooeeeee

I find it funny how partners can say stuff like that then as soon as you agree with it will immediately attack you for it as though it were your own words.

Here's hoping that everything goes well for the next 24 hours and she doesn't try convincing you to stay.

strawberry floating love that sketch

the thing that amazes me (and the reason I was pissed off last time) is how all of these little things just appear up out of the ether, loads of nasty mean little remarks out of nowhere

remember that time you got a papercut 2 years ago and I said you werent a baby and papercuts hurt, well guess what, you are a baby

stuff that really cuts to the soul of you, na' mean?

Sorry to hear it's all gone south, Falsey. Break ups are tough, her spitefulness isn't going to make it any easier. Pity she seems not to understand that.
