To think our daughter is more important than his hobby?

Dd had contact with her father this weekend. She's 6. He picked her up from school on friday and returned her yesterday but forgot to bring back her shoes, coat and reading book despite me texting him a list of items to return. She won't get to change her reading book today which isn't that much of a big deal, though she's disappointed and annoyed. Luckily I had spare shoes for her but no spare coat. We walk 2 miles to/from school and it was 11 degrees here this morning so chilly enough to need a coat. I managed to get us a lift this morning but can't any other day this week. I text him telling him he'd forgotten it and he offered to bring it back on Friday morning. I said its cold, she needs it, head teacher said all children must have a coat now etc and couldn't he bring it tonight? He said he's busy with his hobby tonight and the next few nights. AIBU to demand he misses his hobby and return her coat? I can't afford to buy another and can't get to his house to collect it.

Poor little girl. I see no reason for him to carry on collecting her. She's unhappy about it, he's useless at it, she's being neglected, he's fucking with her head and lying to her.

It might be time to explain to her in an age appropriate way that her dad tells fibs sometimes and that she can always check with you if he's said something and she's not sure if its true.

I am so sorry that your ex is a complete wank badger.

Irrelevant, I know- but where do you live that it's coat weather?
