My name is Ava, well it’s not really but for the purposes of this blog it is. *All the names been changed to protect the innocent, but mainly changed to protect my guilt*.
I’m a forty something professional woman. I’m many things to many people. First and foremost I’m a wife to my husband, I’m going to call him *Dick* because he is. He’s not a bad person he’s just a man, occasionally a very nice one but usually he’s grumpy, moody and angry at the world. I love him with most of my heart, and I’m pretty sure he loves me too he just has difficulty showing it. We have been married forever and it’s been a great adventure but it lacks passion and excitement.
I’m also a mother, a great one. There is nothing in this world that has bought me more joy or happiness than my two children. They are teenagers now and need me less and less as the years go by. I’m trying not to struggle with that fact, I’m trying hard to remember that they need their own space if we’re to develop a lasting, loving, healthy parental relationship.
My eldest is a boy called *Frank* because he is, he’s honest and tells you exactly what he thinks, irrespective of whether its appropriate or not. He gets that from his dad, definitely! He’s big, tall, strong, handsome and very, very funny. He has a similar sense of humour to me and he makes me smile. He works hard and I’m very proud of him.
I also have a daughter called *Joy* because she is, she’s bright, articulate, beautiful, funny, outgoing and very pretty. She’s very like me in attitude, in fact she’s like me at 30 not me as a teenager. She is going to conquer the world and I plan to support her until she does.
So that’s me and my family. I feel like I’ve forgotten something though. Oh yes, the reason for this blog.
I was shagging my very married senior manager but it turns out that really wasn’t my best judgement. We all learn the hard way I guess. Follow my adventures as I try to see what fucking calamitous disaster awaits me next on my journey!
