Launderette.

I went to the launderette the other night for the first time in my adult life.
It is on the corner of a suburban street and it glowed like a beacon in the night. A few doors down the pizza shop lights danced a tuneless dance.
It was a strange experience for no reason in particular. I felt like I was in an Australian movie. I half expected Ben Mendhelson or Toni Collette to walk in and throw dirty sheets into the machine.
I actually loved it. Maybe only someone who literally never goes there could say that, but there you go.

It is just the beginning.

Once upon a time...

Life is no fairytale. No shit, I hear you all say. But that doesn't mean it can't be amazing. What fairytale didn't have a plot that included things going to poo for the main character?
Well. Things went to poo for me, and now they are getting better.

The kids are great, better than great, perfect. Perfect in their inperfection. I'm great too at the moment, kinda sorta maybe comfortable with my own 'singleness'... but if the right girl came along I'm sure I'd be ready to embrace 'coupleness'.

I'm moving in with a friend shortly, I have been on my own for a few months which has been great, especially when I have Anzac and Lola. But when I don't have them I'm a little lonely. I'll also save a bit of money.

I'm actually in love with a couple of friendships at the moment. The great thing we can all take out of times of hardship is that the cream rises, the people who really care, and really matter, show themselves in ways you never imagined. It is really uplifting (to use Chez's word).

This post is kinda all over the place... sorry.

So yeah, I've decided that this is just the beginning of a new chapter. The last one ended sadly, but I won't let that define me in the future. My future will be defined by the attitude I choose, and how I apply the lessons I have learnt from the mistakes I have made.

That's where I'm at.
