I am looking at a house this week that may be ideal for us, I have a few reservations about the area, only because it’s slightly further away than I wanted to go and it makes it more difficult for the kids to easily see their friends but I know we can work around that. The house has enough bedrooms, is on a really nice road and looks lovely from the outside.
I told the kids that Tom and I are splitting up and that we’re moving out, they all took it really well, much better than I thought they would. Katie smiled and grinned and said he was always having a go at her so she wasn’t sad about it. Alice expressed concern about not being able to see her friends, about me getting lonely, and how selfish Tom is for making us leave while he stays in a house far too big for his needs. Out of the mouth of babes.
I actually can’t wait for it to happen now and am going to start packing up now that the kids know. I’m so glad I went for therapy and have finally been able to start seeing my worth and have the courage to do what I should have done a very long time ago.
