The older children were all at their Dad’s today so it was just Tom, Annie and I at home. I really felt as though I could do with some time to myself. I asked Tom if he could take Annie out for a couple of hours. I thought he would jump at the chance as he always says he loves spending time with her but instead, he lost his temper saying he shouldn’t be being pushed out of his own home and that he didn’t know what to do with her, that I’m selfish and all I think about is myself. I didn’t back down and eventually, they did go out and for the first time in a very long time, I finally had a few hours that were just about me.
