Goodness it’s been so long since I’ve had to do anything like this. A part of me thought I might have forgotten how to do it, but the skill lies deep within, buried just under the surface, lying in wait until the time is right. I suppose it’s a lot like riding a bicycle – you never quite forget.
When I was married, there was simply no need to work. My husband was a man who came from great wealth and had added to it his far share. He himself worked very little, and we had so much between us that it was ridiculous if I kept a 9-5 type job. It just wasn’t necessary when we could be out there, enjoying our lives together. It was only when things began to turn southwards that I realised that the paradise I was living in was a one-dimensional sham of a reality. Now, through the divorce process, I’ve come to realise just how much my work was a part of me back then. It’s high time I rediscover myself, and make my way back through the mess of paperwork and tears.
The first thing I had to do on my first day back was get back in touch with the best steel suppliers Melbourne has to offer. It seems that, in my absence, the boys let things slip a little bit and we’ve fallen out of touch. With any luck, I know I’ll be able to get them back on my side. The truth of the matter is that, even though the boys may have thought they were doing me a favour by reducing costs, these are there just isn’t another place that does steel fabrication in Melbourne anywhere near the quality that these guys get to. They’re simply phenomenal.
I know that there are probably more loose ends to tie up and wrong steps to correct, but to be honest, I just can’t wait to get started. It feels good to be back to myself.
