Sorry I haven't posted for ages - not that anyone apart from 'Anonymous' missed me.
Not much been going on really with the run up to Christmas.
Jake has been performing in Peter Pan at the Lowry, loving it and doing really well.
I've been trying to keep the football training going and its been alright but my Christmas belly seems to have turned up early.
I've been reminded that even new relationships are hard work.
I've been dealing with all the emotions involved in my son being around another man (my ex's boyfriend) and this time of year it makes all those sorts of things even harder.
I will be spending Xmas day alone and not seeing Jake until Boxing day.
Now I'm not saying that for any kind of sympathy or anything - actually a small part of me is looking forward to a day of 'me' time - but these are the sorts of things I've been dealing with hence the lack of enthusiasm for posting.
If I don't post before I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
