She and the children are where they need to be now and she is very grateful for all the support and encouragement she has received. I hope very much that she will return here but for now she’s intending to lie a little bit low.

Please just be sensitive to the fact that this is a huge, life changing decision for her and I think she would like it toned down a bit wrt pompoms and congratulations. I hope very much that this will change as the days pass and she becomes accustomed to the incredulous joy of freedom. She is already sounding positive about life where she is right now.

This time they really are ‘safe’ in the way that everybody hoped previously.

NB I have not used any names in this for a reason. Please be aware of security as she is understandably very worried about him locating her

Thank God.

Tis please pass on my ear-splitting smiles to her smile

Fingers crossed this is about who I think it is.

Well done, and best of luck for the future. I'm sure the next few weeks and months will have their challenges, but I hope that you (and your DCs) will also be able to enjoy the freedom which you have given yourself and them.

I'm just absolutely in awe of your strength and courage. flowers

This has made my day. She has a long journey ahead of her, but this was the biggest step. What a woman! grin

No pompoms but I have a tear in my eye.

As I think will a lot who have been in that situation in the past.

Was wondering if today would be the day. Thanks for the update.

A very quiet yay from here. As a long-time lurker on her threads I am thrilled to hear she has made such a monumental step. I hope she gets the help, support and space she needs to face each day as her life starts to change.

No pom poms, just a huge sigh of relief. Thinking of you, and hoping you soon start to experience relief and happiness at the freedom to have those dress up teas whenever you want.

Thank goodness. So relieved.
And well done.
