....I'm glad I spent it with you xx
I had a lovely day off yesterday which I spent with my lovely wife.
She had to go into school - even though it was her day off. It was the
reception class Christmas play and Sarah had been asked to go in and sit with
the little girl with Down's syndrome she has been working with. The little
girl has really taken to Sarah and will attach herself to Sarah whenever she
is at work.
Having seen Sarah with her I can quite understand why! She is a cute little
thing - the sort of kid you would want to look after.
Anyway I spent the whole time in Sarah's room looking after Ben who needed
to be stopped from trying to join mummy in the hall.
After that we went to Brighton - we seem to added this to our yearly
Christmas traditions - a shopping trip at the seaside. Beats our local
shopping centre hands down anyway.
After lunch I was allowed a whole hour to go and find Christmas prezzies
for her! Actually it only took me 45 minutes and 10 minutes of that was buying
cards (Daughters 17th birthday, wedding anniversary and Christmas cards to
keep my Dad happy (he is obsessed!) and another 10 minutes spending my
birthday money (pair of noise cancelling headphones) - in my defence I did
know exactly what I was getting her.
So after a lovely day we headed home - no sooner than we had got through
the door then the nasty text messages started arriving from my ex-wife. I
can't understand why she feels the need to continue to have a go at me even
though we've been apart for almost 5 years. The gist of her attack was that I
hadn't asked the girls if they wanted to go up north at New year.
FFS they spent all of last Christmas and New Year in Oz with us - you'd
think she'd want them to herself this year. In reality they haven't spent a
single New Years Eve with her since the split - strange that how she manages
to get that particular night on her own.
I'd put good money on one of the following happening this year - either she
will put them on a coach up to her mums house or the girls will spend NYE with
their friends and mummy will be free to do whatever she wants.
