Morning yummy, How are the fish fingers? You OK?

Stellarella123 Wed 01-May-13 19:29:01

How's it going?

(((hugs)))

Hang in there.

I completely agree with all the other posters. Please don't worry about your children's diet at this point - there will be plenty of days, weeks and years to feed them what you want. Your energy is needed to get out of the relationship.

Are you able to get to the solicitors today?

Many hugs from me!
This is a turbulent time - fishfingers and beans on toast for a few weeks, plus maybe a bit more telly than usual - is better for your DC than a childhood spent with an abusive father. You are doing brilliantly, be kind to your self and keep on keeping on!
(((hugs)))

just to add a hug from here too.
Fishfingers do not count as junk food! they are healthy! smile
We have cucumber to almost anything, it counts as "veg" and will sometimes be their 1-a-day...
How old are your children?
You just take your time, and when you are all yourself again I'm pretty sure you'll start noticing how lovely you are!
Constant abuse does not make anyone beautiful, but you'll blossom once you don't have to hear all this rubbish spouted at you!

extra hug.

Also hav totally lost appetite which is unlike me all clothes loose wd be great ordinarily but not now. But then I am constantly told I am fat and ugly so believe it now

Thankyou for hugs, hugs to all of you too. Its so nice to receive such kindness from here just dont have much in rl. Feel a bit affection starved! And kids are lovely but tiny so will endure my hugs then ask for more chocolate. Feel like have been letting them down a bit with fishfingers etc and more junky food than normal.

Hugs Huni Xxx

Lueji Mon 29-Apr-13 13:51:08

Have a big hug anyway.

cjel Mon 29-Apr-13 13:43:48

yummy - if i was near enough I would hug you.Can you ring womans aid. I still don't think he should be in you home after what he did. Can you get advice about ways of making him leave.? ask garage if they can lend you curtesy car for tomorrow, quite often they will have one even if its not the same as the one your used to?legal fees don't have to be paid yet and then only when you have had the work done. I paid a few hundred up front then bit more few months later as they do the work , so you don't have to think about that today.xx <<<Hugs>>>

yummytummy Mon 29-Apr-13 13:00:47

hi just to say am ok-ish. just starting to feel really really depressed by it all. he is getting to me just by his presence and not done anything but the threat is always there. its just feeling on top of me atm. also my car has had to go to garage and may not be ready by tomorrow so may not be able to get to solicitor. its really crap. plus it will cost around £700 and had been trying to save for legal fees etc i will need soon. wish i had someone who could just hug me and look after me and sort it out.

Wondering the same as jux, are you ok Yummytummy?

Jux Mon 29-Apr-13 11:50:01

Are you OK, yummytummy?

Stellarella123 Sun 28-Apr-13 19:41:16

Hope all is ok today x

cjel Sun 28-Apr-13 08:19:14

morning yummy. thinking about you this morning.hope you're ok?

skyebluesapphire Sun 28-Apr-13 01:47:42

If he is violent and its on record, You can get an injunction against him to keep him away from the house whether he owns it or not . If you qualify for legal aid you can still get it in cases of DV. If he breaks the injunction then he will be arrested.

You can't change the locks on a joint mortgage but you may be able to if you have an injunction, you will need professional advice on that.

A girl i know has around four different injunctions against her violent ex as he tried to kidnap the kids.

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow Sat 27-Apr-13 23:32:52

Hope the Op's OK

Lavenderhoney Sat 27-Apr-13 21:05:17

Can you sleep in with the dc or take them somewhere til tues?
He sounds a total tool to expect you to go to a picnic(!) don't go, for all the excellent reasons listed on this thread.

Call the police if you can. In the loo, when he begins to get threatening. Don't wait.

chipmonkey Sat 27-Apr-13 20:53:46

He put himself in jail! I cannnot believe they let him back in to your house!

BabyHMummy Sat 27-Apr-13 20:37:29

She would be breaking the law to change the locks even if the police remove him

marriedinwhiteagain Sat 27-Apr-13 19:51:26

Read my post BabyHMummy Police, Locksmith, in that order. OP where are your parents? Do you have anywhere else you could go; refuge even via the street if you have to?

BabyHMummy Sat 27-Apr-13 19:39:33

marriedinwhite she can't change the locks. He is named as part owner and therefore has right of access. She cannot stop him being there unless the police or social services prevent it

Yummy ignore him. He ia trying reassert his power over you. Stay strong and if he starts with threats ring the police straight away

Yes, seconding Hissy. Of course he is upset he went to prison, and how awful this was for HIM. His family may think the same. But remember WHY he went to prison. Why was it again? oh, yes. He attacked you and threatened you. That is illegal, and he is now having to face the consequences of his behaviour, and he does not like that. It is not just you saying he shouldn't do it, it's the whole rest of society pointing out he is in the wrong. If he goes out for the evening, is there any way you can barricade the doors? put a polite notice on it to say he has to sleep elsewhere, and if he kicks up a fuss call the police and have him removed. I should think you are entitled to do that? I don't want to give wrong advice here, but hoping you stay safe and roll on Tuesday!

cjel Sat 27-Apr-13 19:31:24

keep posting so you can realise its only alittle while and you won't be livling like this. as you say roll on tues. BUT you dont have to wait till then if you don't want to . you always have a choice. Don't let him get to youxx
