I can't believe I forgot to mention the best thing about yesterday!
Some of you might know that I've been writing a blog on Myspace since 2006 which has chronicled the ups and downs of my life. Among many other things, I have written about my adventures in online dating and the rollercoaster that was my previous relationship.
I've gathered a small but loyal band of readers on there and yesterday I got an email from one of them in response to the news that I was planning to move the blog from Myspace to Blogger.
She said that she read them back when she was "single and lonely" and struggling to balance life as a single mother to a special needs child.
"I would creep into my little room, while my son slept soundly and read your dating adventures and laugh. It was all exciting and I got a bit addicted at one stage of my boring life as I never got out that much because of [her son's condition], and my work and just basically balancing life as a single mum....So thanks for making me laugh and maybe feel a bit sad reading your blogs...I feel your frustration sometimes, and happiness. Thank you."
I was so touched. Blogging - particularly personal blogs - can be a very self-indulgent exercise, but it's so gratifying to know that your ramblings mean something to someone else, even if they are just a distraction and some light relief at the end of a hard day.
It's a wonderful feeling knowing your words - something you have created - can make an impact.
