Long term readers (are there any other type now? pretty sure I don’t get any new ones these days 😂) may recall that in 2014 after splitting from my ex – the children’s father – I launched “project £20k” to raise funds to buy my ex out of our joint mortgage.
Well, as it turns out, I might need to do that again. Fun times!
It’s official: Gaz and I are separating. There’s been some incompatibilities in our relationship for some time and despite trying everything under the sun to make it work (and I do mean everything), it reached the point where forcing it along became painful for both of us, so we drew a line. We’re still friends, we still love each other, but being a married couple isn’t working for us now.
Anyway, you’d think I’d have learned my lesson from my first big split and scary financial situation but no, that would be too easy. Everything I have surplus once kids and bills are taken care of gets pumped into my business and my work, and my work is in the – awkward timing – position of expanding (as of next week we’re a team of four) so cashflow is tight.
I don’t have the balls to ask the internet for £20,000 these days (oh, the naivety) but I could do with your crossed fingers and best wishes and good vibes because reading back the posts from 2014 makes for some fucking stark reading and I need all the love I can get.
