Disagreement with ExH on pick up time

Arghhhh....small rant to follow, apologies!

ExH and I had a disagreement back in March about where DS would spend Aug bank hols weekend, we had both provisionally booked something in without telling the other one (stupid on both our parts). I backed down (as I seem always to do) and said he could spend it with ExH as they were doing something with extended family.

ExH has today asked what time Fri morning he can pick DS up....Now someone tell me when bank holiday weekends started on a friday morning?? He's claiming we agreed that already (all agreements on dates are over email so we have a record of them - I've looked back and all the emails say are that DS will be with ExH bank holiday weekend). I've made plans for picnic with friends Fri lunchtime now - yes I could cancel that but I just feel like I am always backing down and ExH has this uncanny ability to always make me feel guilty.

I always try and think about DS and put him first thinking what would he like to do. He's only 3 so picnic with friends and starting his weekend early with Daddy would both be fun.

It seems such a minor issue but am just fed up with being made to feel guilty as if I'm always the one in the wrong.

Sorry rant over....

Thanks for the responses! Sometimes just writing it down helps get it into perspective....Mumsnet always handy for that!!

In the end we compromised. DS and I having lunch with friends then ExH picking him up mid afternoon.

I'm just looking forward to 3 whole lie ins now grin
