I was moaning about something crappy that happened around mid-February last year to a friend when she replied: “The downside to your blog is that your remember these dates.”
Ironically, the crappy thing that I was moaning about WASN’T on my blog. But while searching for my Doctor Who Valentine’s Day post to put on Facebook this morning I came across a few really shite things that have happened around Valentine’s Day that WERE on my blog that I’d forgotten until I started trawling.
This time last year I noted it was “Unhappy Anniversary time – one year since my husband announced he was leaving me. And I celebrated by miscarrying my Mirena. I possibly didn’t explain what a Mirena was properly [leading some people to think I’d been with child] it’s a plastic thing that was in my uterus to try and mitigate some of my lady plumbing problems and it came out rather traumatically. I didn’t have an actual miscarriage. When I went to see my gyno, he got very giggly about my old eggs and their inability to bear fruit. I gave him a VERY stern look.”
My ex actually got the keys to his new apartment – three days after announcing he was leaving me, he moved FAST – on Valentine’s Day 2013. Soooo romantic.
And Valentine’s Day 2015 hasn’t been off to the best of starts. I’ve spent it sponging shite off my dog’s butt (time for a butt shave sonny boy) and having a cup of tea with my ex during kid hand over.
The only way is up.
How’s your day going? Are you celebrating the big V?
Song of the day: The Beatles “All you need is love”
