A Really Good Day.

Yesterday was a great day. Hunney and I had a lazy start before the short drive through to Douglas, the capital town of the island. My court time was 11.40. My Ex did his best to disrupt proceedings, but the judge was having none of that. It took the judge less than 5 minutes to declare the final order. I'm officially divorced and my ex stormed out!
After that Hunney and I headed into town. I had some things to get rid of. A few weeks ago when digging about looking for something else, I found some jewellery which my ex had bought me, I really didn't know what to do with it. Then a couple of days ago I had a bright idea. So yesterday we took it to a jeweller who confirmed my suspicions and didn't purchase all of it. He suggested that the left overs go to a charity shop, which they did. The few items he did buy, paid for a celebratory lunch for Hunney and I. We had a delicious meal at an Italian restaurant.
Then we sauntered along the street in the sunshine. I treated myself to some new blouses and enjoyed the sun. Neither of us wanted any dinner last night, but we continued the celebration with a glass of wine.
Today it seems that the celebration will continue. I have an appointment this morning, but I also have a lunch date with a girl friend and a coffee date with another girl friend this afternoon. LOL So no time for sewing today. The celebrations look set to continue, as I have a girls night in on Friday, though knowing our gang, as I do, it will probably turn into a girls night out!
So, there you have it, after over nine years I'm finally divorced. How does it feel? Well no different to be honest, in my mind I haven't been married to my ex since the day I left him, though I must admit it's a relief to finally make it official.
No pictures today, but I'm sure you could paint your own after reading that!
2) A free lunch
3) The Good days.

Those legally binding things are really meaningful, aren't they? I hope your next "sign on the dotted line" is for a start, not an ending! Congratulations.

LOL I can relate to you celebrating your divorce. I did exactly the same when I divorced my first husband. I went out and bought a huge cake to take to work to share with the girls in our office! I think some of them were a bit shocked that I would CELEBRATE a divorce (mind you this was 32 years ago), but the others thought it was a huge joke.
