Not good

Sorry for the lack of posts recently and there won’t be many for a while yet. I’m still in Auckland and the bad news is that Lou and I have parted ways. As a result, I’m completely heartbroken and I’m really not up to blogging. Or much else, to be honest. I hope the two of us can remain friends, but right now all I can think about is what I’ve lost and I don’t even know why it’s happened.

I fly to Brisbane on Friday morning, then on to Melbourne after that. I haven’t planned on my next destination but I’ll need to sort something out fairly soon. I’m awaiting a call back from the Oz Consulate to let me know if I can fly in without an onward ticket as I’ll have the funds from my house sale in my bank account.

Right now I should be happy as Larry with a bulging bank account and the world at my fingertips. Instead I can only think of what I’ve lost and what will no longer be. Sorry for being so down in public, but friends will know that I’m a very open person and I needed to let you all know.

Sorry man – hope you feel okay soon, I know it won’t get better for a while, but hopefully things’ll go okay.


Thanks, Damo. It’s not going to be easy for the next few weeks, maybe months. I was/am smitten by this lady and it’s going to take me a long time to get over her.

But we’re still friends and I don’t want to lose that. As well as being the best girlfriend I ever had, she’s also simply one of the best friends.


hugs and kisses


Backatchya, Marina.

Keep your chin up mate…

SWMBO and I are thinking about you.


Thanks to you both.

Eh, that has to hurt. Hope you do keep the friendship, but if my negligible experience is anything to go by, give it some time to stop hurting before working on that. Otherwise it just ends up reopening unhealed hurty bits.


Cheers, fella. Any advice is good advice, despite the number of times I’ve been through this living hell before. For some reason this time is worse than any other before it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
