divided loyalties (or just 'oh fuck!')

good news: the girls dad has split from his woman friend of five years and her apparently 'horrid' boy children (his explanation not mine) and may be moving back to Adelaide.

bad news: (actually very very bad news) the girls dad has split from his woman friend of five years and her apparently 'horrid' boy children (his explanation not mine) and may be moving back to Adelaide.

Take your pick depending upon which side of the fence you may sit. The man just upped it and left to follow her to QLD, leaving his children behind. No job as a justifier to them, no climbing the ladder, etc, just another woman and her kids.

To me it screams the end of peace, continuity, consistency and stability. The judge ordered him nothing as he failed to turn up at the custody hearing (how can you not turn up at the custody hearing FOR YOUR OWN CHILDREN!?) he has already started on the girls 'if your mother lets me see you'. ugh.
Ding ding. Round ...umm ...lost count.

Bugger.

I was thinking the other day, while talking to a new friend about her ex and daughter, that this is basically the only situation where parents long for their children to get older. Soon they'll be old enough to make their own decisions about when and how often they see their dad and have a greater ability to set their own limits with him. But in the meantime, bugger.

Oh crap Kel...I'm sorry thatthis may be happening and upsetting your family life.

How dare he say "If your mother lets me..." when he didn't turn up at the hearing. He deserves nothing, nil, nada.

Sending Melbourne vibes his way...!!!
