An uncertain week has just passed by compounded by some financial woes. Glad to say that the issue has now been resolved & the Arcane ship is back on course. With just a week to go until the school holidays we will have reached another plateau in Caits recovery. Another full term completed ! There really is in my mind no going back to the dark days anymore. I take a great deal of pride in the knowledge that at least one parent in her life stuck with her & helped her through that time.
It is not usual in these pages for me to disparage my ex but I feel that I cannot contain my emotions on the subject any longer, when Caits was at her lowest ebb her mother chose her career & her relationship with her new partner over her daughter, saying she " Could not cope anymore ". In translation that meant that she was not prepared to stay home with her daughter & nurse her to recovery. She passed the problem on to me, to be honest I had no choice, because if I did not take her in & look after her who would ? It has left me feeling sad that a parent who took me to court for full custody of her children could give up at the first sign of trouble. I have no idea what the future impact of been separated from her brother & rejection by her mother will have on my daughter long term. All I know is that I have to provide a safe loving, supportive environment for her.
It has also left me feeling no respect at all for her mother who it seems to me is a fair weather friend with no concept of parent hood. There ! Got that one of my chest, we will not speak of this again.
