I'd be seething too, what an ass. The shoes were his responsibility, he sounds like an idiot. I would be demanding the shoes back personally...

the man is a tw*t

He is a twat, so with that in mind, buy a cheap pair of crocs (about £3 from B&M) and a cheapie outfit and send her to his in these clothes only.

Tell him to buy whatever DD needs when she is at his house, it's not your job to supply everything. He is a parent too and perfectly capable of supplying whatever his child needs when she visits.

alternatively tell him he can visit her at your house/neutral location like the park, but he won't be allowed to take her anywhere without you also being present until he proves he can be responsible and that means not forgetting her stuff!

Get cheap crocs. My 3 year old finds them more comfortable (and they've lasted better) than the expensive clarks shoes that she has. it's madness to sit in all day waiting for shoes to arrive.

I cant beleive this! What normal people wouldn't make sure their daughter or grandchild had access to footwear.

They should move heaven and earth to get them back as its what is right and fair for your daughter.

XP mistake so he should rectify it.

Strandedbear - a few weeks ago I got sent my 9 and 21 year olds back with no shoes and lovely clothes styled circa 1982 with old clothes that used to belong to their dad and uncle (no joke)

I really feel for you

fuckmepinkandCALLmegoran Sun 03-Jul-11 19:12:52

21 - fuck no - 12 lol

You sound well rid of him, stranded. I'd be fuming too!

fuckmepinkandCALLmegoran Sun 03-Jul-11 19:34:22

Stranded - that's pretty decent of her although it doesn't help you today.

I currently have a thread in AIBU about how my ex has allowed the 12 year old to drive a massive tractor and trailer and I'm uptight about it

Send your daughter in future in clothes/shoes that it doesnt matter if she comes back in them or not. Children always need more than one pair if you are split parenting. Mine only ever had one pair cos their dad could never be arsed to have them overnight.

Was it you who had the thread the other day about XP not agreeing with DD in black trainers?

If it was any chance these not returning and new ones ordered isn't co-incidence?

<waits for SB to say she's received delivery of pink sparkly trainers>

If it wasn't you ignore this and your still NBU. grin

Girly - I'll bet grin

And I bet ordered before this evening if coming tomorrow. grin

<cynical emotion> grin

fuckmepinkandCALLmegoran Sun 03-Jul-11 19:57:20

That's a good point youarekidding

ihatecbeebies Sun 03-Jul-11 20:06:14

That's a bit daft that he forgot her shoes! Can he not get a bus or walk to yours or could you meet him halfway? £90 a month isn't that measly though, my exp is suppost to give me child maintenance too at £20 a month and he's still digging his heels and refusing, £90 a month isn't that bad.

did the shoes arrive and more importantly what are they like. wink
