Sorry this took so long to put up. It was with the lawyers in case there was anything contentious in the post.
Divorced Dad has the kids a couple of nights a week unless he’s working abroad or working a broad (as his ex calls the girlfriend). He books into a B&B not far away from what was the family home, before the split, or his parents if he can face them. That’s the better option though, as at least his mum feeds him and there’s an extra room for the children. Taking them to school is hard work as it means leaving at the crack of dawn in order to get to work on time. His daughter goes to bed far too late as she wants to make up for not seeing him all week, and his son makes him feel guilty then raids his wallet. In fact the mornings are a nightmare. He did try really hard to get less custody but the bitch wasn’t having it. The Relate counsellor said they should both try and communicate for the children’s sake. Good advice – the only thing that makes it all worthwhile is writing to his ex in the kids’ school diaries.
This post is not based on any persons living or dead. But if you or anyone you know is divorced, I understand things can get heated sometimes and it’s a little bit harder to feel the love. But don’t give up – even Nigella and Charles are bound to be good mates again in the end. Don’t you think?
