I feel like I'm a horrible person. My ex, lost his wife last year, (although he still has an elderly mother and a sister).
Our daughters have arranged for him to visit one on Christmas day (with our grandchildren) and the other on Boxing day (no grandchildren) and I am feeling very left out!
I had assumed that my ex would be visiting his mother on Boxing day and that I would get to see our children and grandchildren then. (Just shows you shouldn't assume!)
I know it is a credit to them that they are looking out for their dad but I feel sad and a bit left out. I have a husband, but no parents or siblings and hoped they'd arrange things so that I could see them on either Christmas Day or Boxing day.
Yes I know it is only a day and I have already made light of it and asked them when they can all come to me for a 2nd Christmas, ... and I know I am being a "right cow" ... but I feel envious that my ex will see 1 daughter and grandkids on Christmas day and then both daughters and grandkids on Boxing day ... and I won't see either.
(I am assuming that because I still have my husband, my daughters feel it would make my ex feel awkward if we all went together).
Feel better for writing it down and realise I am being silly ... but I can't help how I feel.
Lets just hope I make it to next Christmas when I will take control and issue invitations first!
Right, issue of chest - rest of Prosecco awaits!
