ExH left 10 months ago so it has been a period of firsts. So I discovered I had a blocked external drain last night. So today I borrowed the drain rods from work and had a really good go a rodding the blocked drain. I was unsuccessful not due to my technique, but drain logistics so the jetting man is coming tomorrow - it is only the kitchen drain nothing more serious. Very proud of myself that I yet again I had a really good go at tackling this.

That is brilliant, it is so empowering isn't it?!

I always did the 'man' jobs around the house when most recent ex was around apart from clipping the dogs nails - must get myself over that hurdle!

Woohoo! I am all about these threads.
I drove to london alone this week for the first time.
That's a good few hundred miles for me.
Actually after a year of lone parenting the only things I have help with ate doing my garden and putting up curtains grin actually I could do my own garden but dm likes to do it for me.

Well curtains I have always done alone. But I think we should always be proud of themselves.

Today I negotiated 4 lane roundabouts, the bypass at 70, reversed round a corner (spot on second time) and did u turns.

I am obviously learning to drive, it's fucking terrifying but I haven't hit anything yet!
