(*) Things are GREAT!!!

I am feeling soooo relieved - actually happy and quite peaceful! I should get some sleep tonight in the nighttime! Yes - I finally had 'that' chat with M tonight. All's well - we both had such a positive, friendly, honest dialogue - we were both quite taken aback! I think we both feared each other were about to do or say something over the last few weeks, but we didn't know what! Anyway, we discussed some of the issues really effectively, and we've both made some concessions. As always (and this has always been the main focus for both of us anyway), the focus was on what's best for the boys. So, we've reached sort of a peace between us - a lot of stuff's been a simple misunderstanding between us... M's been too uptight to be able to talk freely, and I've been stressing so much! So, now things are more out in the open, things that needed to be said have been said in a kind, friendly, understanding way (and received) - things look a whole lot bloody better!

I could sing, dance, whirling dervish! The feeling of weight has lifted right off my shoulders.
Is this what a sense of peace feels like? I'd almost forgotten...

Please be happy for me... it's not every day that I actually feel an inner sense of peace and relief like this! Whoo hoo... dance of joy... dance of joy... bugger the neighbours!

excellent news mal. it's sad that we spend so much time being stressed, that when we do find peace we question it. hope the feeling lasts for you.
