Sidles in with a shifty expression, looking from left to right and left again...
So I am back.
Grab a cup of tea.
For those of you who don't know, my blog identity became known in the workplace and I took fright.
I felt exposed and vulnerable and more than a little scared that I had written something compromising, so I pulled down the blog.
But over the weekend, I decided that this newly strong woman does not give in that easily.
Actually, I have always been careful not to write anything negative about my employer. And increasingly, now that I have the mental space to commit to it, I find that I love my job.
Are you hearing that, oh naysayers?
I love my job.
So here I am.
I have had a month away from the blog.
In that time, I have been to the gym 6 days a week and dance-based exercise classes 3 times a week.
I am eating well and I have dropped a dress size. (I have no plans to get any thinner, thanks.)
I cancelled two planned trips away because I realised that I am not that person anymore.
I need to find new places to go, new things to do, new friendships that speak to me about the person I am today, the person I want to be tomorrow, next year.
I have stopped wearing my rings and I am quietly signing myself "Ms".
I am alone but I refuse to be lonely.
It's going to be just fine.
Woman Up Roo!
Oh - and don't worry - I still knit socks!
