Waited for the finances to be completed which took just under 3 years and then put a great bunch of balloons on the front door with lots and lots of ribbon and a great big ''Congratualations'' banner. It was a fantastic feeling and then I went on to decorate the entire house in the way I wanted.

It was a great feeling especially as I received a text that very night from my ex which read along the lines "not sure what you are celebrating about" I just text back "I do!" It appeared that his solicitors held on to his monies from the transfer of equity for quite some time.

Not divorced yet, but have taken down my wedding photo, an ornamental wedding certificate, an embroidered wedding wish and a photo of the two of us at the Whitby Gothic Weekend that hung on the wall.

Seeing them every day was just too painful

I have been seriously considering packing them in with some of her stuff that she has to collect and send them to her house. Not out of spite, just that I cant stand to see them. Too painful for me. And seeing as she doesnt give much of a damn they shouldnt upset her greatly.

First thing I did was on the Monday after my divorce, I went and bought a Porsche Boxster, a car I always wanted. My Ex went ape sh*te why I dont know lol. I just had to show the evil witch that I was on the up despite her attempts to ruin my life, 3 years on I have to say I am more happy than if I had still been married to her
