Deb, its crap isnt it? surely when a kid gets to a certain age then it should be their choice? I feel totally gutted cos david and i stayed around for my ex to have contact with the girls, let him see them whenever he wanted etc, let him off thousands of pounds in maintanence and this is how he repays us.I respected their choice so why cant he? I hope it all works out for you too, i really do x

I know i,ve been told it takes at least 2 years to feel settled here and for the homesick feelings to go, but dont have the problem of just missing parents, siblings and friends - i have my 3 daughters added into the equation which believe you me , is a damm sight harder. I knew it was going to be hard, but now plans have changed with them. Originally, the eldest was going to come and live here when she finishes college in June, but now has a boyfriend - say no more! the youngest wants to come and live here when she comes out in July but am having problems with her father over it. The middle daughter is saying she is going to come and live here for a year when she finishes college in over 2 years time. So, i dont know what to do for the best. I like it here alot, Harry has settled really well, David likes it here, but like me, misses the girls terribly and if they were here - it would all be perfect! So, we,re going to see how we feel when we,ve been here for a year, see what happens with the girls when they,ve been out to visit they may change their minds and want to stay! So really,im not really feeling homesick, i just miss my girls........ alot
