La vie en rose

24.7.10

Long time no speak... :) And I have missed you! Without going into too much detail the past 2 weeks of my life have been a nightmare (to say the least) but I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, even if it's only a faint glimmer.

Andrew and I decided to call time on our relationship after 2 years because we had grown apart. The past few months have been full of bickering and silly arguments, difference of opinion and a difference in interests. Whilst we are still living together for the moment, soon we will move on to our own places and start our new lives seperately.

I'll get a little place with Lily and Lola; I'm scared but excited at the prospect of living alone. You see I've never done anything for myself before. I have lived away from my parents for 15 months but I still can't cook, don't understand bills most of the time, and don't know how to use a washing machine properly. For the first time ever I will try to stand on my own two feet and concentrate on what makes me happy.


Thank you SO much for the emails and comments from you lovely folk. I've got some great blog-friends and you have all made this process a bit easier for me.

Normal blogging will resume (inbetween packing boxes and looking for a place) so stay tuned! I miss typing up my Monday summaries - although lately I think it may have been a struggle to think of 5 good things!!

Lots of love,

Victoria x

  5. Massive hugs coming your way sweetie, such a shame that you and Andrew have parted ways, but everything happens for a reason and I think you've made the best decision if you were unhappy.

    You will be fine living on your own, you can do it :) Just come and ask me how to do anything, hehe...and I'll say "phone your Mum", because I still do after living away from home for 6 years!

    Lots of love x x x x x

  6. Standing on your own two feet for the first time is scary but once you start to get the hang of things it's so empowering. Don't worry there is an end to the tunnel, just keep at it xx

  8. I'm sure everyones saying this to you, but you know if you need anything- a chat to some one who isn't in 'the picture' then I'm always here.
    It must be scary, but at the same time soon it will become easy & it will be amazing for you. When I broke up with my bf after 3 1/2 years it nearly killed me, but it does make you stronger.
    all my love

  15. As I said in my e-mail, if you ever want a cup of coffee with someone not involved, then I'm your girl!

    You're being very level headed about it all and I'm so impressed. Living on your own will be good for you hun and with Lily and Lola to keep you company I've no doubt that you'll be just fine.

  17. I'm sorry to hear and hope you're okay, but living by yourself will be a great new start for you, and as you said you'll become really independent and learn lots of things! :) xxx

  21. So sorry to hear this. :( I know how tough it must be but it sounds like you are coping with it well and it will make you a stronger person. Please stay positive, there's a lot to look forward to. Don't worry about the cooking thing either, you will soon pick up how to do it, start off with simple meals. It's still a learning curve for me, but it's actually quite fun learning new recipes, I never thought I'd say that. xXx

    Good luck! Lots of love Maria xxxx

Good Luck Victoria, living on your own is tough, but it gets much easier, I Moved in to my place with my boyfriend and then we broke up, now I live here alone, but I'm ok, and two months down the line I am the happiest I have ever been. You will be fine hunny, keep me up to date with your decorating!! Trust me it is so, so fun being able to be amazingly girly!! Plus you can have your girls over for wine whenever you want, it really is enchanting. xxx
