A Belated New Chapter

Slightly later than anticipated, but Happy New Year to you all. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and a great start to the New Year.

2019 got off to a slightly strange start.

I had a lovely Christmas back home with my family.

Despite my recent breakup, I was looking forward to getting back to London.

I was excited to be moving my cat down to London with me. I have had my little four legged creature for about 5/6 years now. She had been living with my mum and dad for the last 3 years, but finally my landlady has given in and allowed me to bring her to the flat. They say cat’s aren’t as loyal as dogs, but this one doesn’t leave my side. Even when I’d go back to mum and dad’s, she follows me everywhere.

It’s been hard getting her settled into flat life this week though. With my ex starting to pack up his things in preparation of moving out of the flat, it’s taken her a good few days to settle in, but judging from the photo below, she’s getting there!

It’s been a hard week for all of us I guess.

The day my ex moved out, I was a more emotional than I had anticipated. We moved into this flat just over 2 years ago after only knowing each other for 6 weeks. There are a lot of memories here.

Yet, I know the decision to go our separate ways is the right one.

I hope we can remain friends, but only time will tell.

So with the first week of January almost behind us, rather belatedly, I am ready to start the new year. My new chapter.

Change is always slightly unnerving, but it’s exciting too.

I can’t wait to see what this year has in store.

It’s time to start filling the pages of 2019.

  1. I have always found that is not very healthy to stay friends with exes. There is always one person who still likes the other and that person will always keep a hope alive. Doesn’t mean that friendship can be born, especially later. Sometimes I wonder what’s the day I will bump into my ex around here. You cat is absolutely beautiful! She will get used to her new home and it’s such a good timing. I’m happy your landlady let you do it. She will keep you company and that’s the best thing right now. 🙂

    1. I have always struggled to stay friends with exes too to be honest. I have stayed friends with one who I was friends with for 10 years before we decided to give our relationship ago. After it ended, we are not as close friends but still like to see how each other are and what each of us is up to. I am not sure how things will work out this time. It’s a shame if we can’t be civil as we live close, but you’re right, it’s important to make sure one person doesn’t get their hopes up 🙂🙃🙂
