Yesterday afternoon Claire and I decided that we don’t see any real future in our relationship, and hence have decided to end it now rather than waste more time in it.
It’s an amicable, mutual decision, and in many ways I’m relieved that we’ve finally come to this decision.
Timing isn’t ideal, as I’m currently in ‘find a job’ mode, and of course we’ve been together for such a long time (over 5 years) that our lives are pretty intricately intertwined, so there’s going to be quite a bit of work involved in the seperation.
I’ll have a lot of very happy memories of the great times we’ve had, lots of great travel, and so forth.
Don’t worry about me, I’m fine. Worry about George though, we haven’t yet worked out a good solution for his future accomodation. If you have any good ideas (or want a wonderful friendly intelligent little dog to take care of) let me know.
