feeling angry and sad

XH hasn't seen the DC for weeks because his DW is due to have a baby this weekend. Fine, ok, I don't agree with that... but, whatever. He is meant to have them in 2 weeks time, but will cancel if DW (OW) goes overdue. Again, whatever.

He actually refused contact 2 weeks ago because it would be helpful to me (I was going to a wedding) not because he couldn't have them. So he is still a prize twat (for those who remember me).

Anyway I'm angry today because he skyped the DC (4 and 2) and mentioned he's driving a 6 hour round trip tomorrow to get XPIL for a visit. He's meant to have the kids tomorrow - normal contact - and has flat refused to see them because it's due date. But he can get in a car and drive 3.5 hours away from his DW instead? To get the XFIL who was abusive to me after I had our DC (EA). Lucky new wife... hmm

Feel like screaming at the useless twunt but I know it's pointless and a waste of energy. My DC deserve better.

Help me detach and care less, please?

I don't have anything useful to say except what a wanker. Really, do you want your kids to have a role model like this? There are times when I genuinely believe no relationship is better than one like this. I'm sorry you're still being dragged over the coals by this total shit.

thanks daffs

I'm over the anger, just plodding along wrt twunt. I don't want them to have a role model like this, no. Not at all sad

caring less is just a matter of time I guess.
