Life After Divorce
My husband retired at 60 as I did, then he left me after 38 years marriage.
I was hoping we were going to travel more as the children had left home.
It took me six months to get myself to go out and meet people. My sister made me join clubs, also go on holiday.
I also moved to a smaller house, after we got divorced, which was new and never wanted any work. It has a small garden which I've had astra turfed, also car spaces to park on the road. I joined other clubs who I go on day trips with also dining out which I enjoy.
I also did a computer course. I've made several friends online to send jokes to and I do online shopping now... also doing the family tree.
I went on a few cruises with my sister, who has passed away now, and took my eldest daughter to canada. I would love to go away again but not on my own.
If I get lonely, I phone my ex workmates and friends up.
