A New Beginning


Good morning from a very bright and sunny Hastings.

If you have been wondering why I haven’t been online lately there is a very good reason.

Last week Hubby and I had a huge argument which resulted in him kicking me out of our home.  So this last week I have been staying at my parents home, with my children still with him.  I have spent the week searching for a new house to rent as well as packing and sorting out amenities etc. I have found a new home and am moving in  tomorrow.  We do have a good welfare system here in New Zealand so I can get assistance to find a new place to rent and in living costs.

I have chosen this butterfly image to represent a new beginning for my children and myself.  They are so fragile,  yet can overcome such adversity and survive against the odds.

I will be completely off line until next Wednesday which should be interesting for my internet addicted children. I miss you all so much but will be back stronger than ever.

Thanks for visiting my blog, even when I am not active.

  1. My mantra is…what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I’m sorry this happened to you. I think you picked a perfect photo for your post. You will come out of this stronger.


  2. Oh do take care of yourself. I hope your new house shelters and nurtures you and that you are able to establish a good relationship with your children. Sending you love and light. 🙂


  3. So sorry about your break up Raewyn. It sounds like you’re having a really tough time right now. However your words & photograph show a real strength & determination. I wish you all the best for a new beginning. Take care! *hugs*


  4. Oh my goodness Raewyn! I am so sorry to hear that hon. I wish I can have my hands on your hubby’s neck at this stage and wring it. How can he do that to you? Shucks! Some men just are not worth it. You are in my thoughts hon and I can see you are very strong and capable. Great shot of a beautiful butterfly and what you say are so true. I know all will be fine and you’ll be okay. 😀 ♥ Hugs ♥
