I did, we got the DSC xmas eve, had a lovely evening playing games with other family members popping in. Great Christmas Day and DS loved having them there. Took them home Boxing Day with no strict times, all very relaxed. The kids even said how much they enjoyed themselves. All very enjoyable and getting them again soon for a few more days smile

No. Bits of it were nice, but it was ruined badly by blocked, low and disjointed contact. I would rather not have DSD on Christmas day again if her selfish mother is going to spoil it all so badly. Feeling very let down by the legal system. Feeling sad DSD had a crap Christmas for no good reason. Feeling very sad that she asked her own mum to have more time with her dad and just had her shout in her face for half an hour. Feel quite heartbroken any kid should have to see their mum in that light.

I am sorry to hear that robotroy. I have been married to my DH for 12 years and his boys are nearly 21 and 19. The younger one lives with us but, even today, their mother continues to make it very tough for the older one to spend any time with us. It is so sad.
That said, he did stand up to her this year and we spent some lovely time with both boys just before Christmas and again around New Year. As ex wife has for years made such a battleground over Christmas and Christmas eve etc, DH and I went away for a week in the sun - bliss!

Thanks you guys. I admit to having a bit of a downer there. I am going to revise my statement as when we picked up DSD for the next visit after, when she came into the house everything was amazing again. She is a joy to be with, a ray of sunshine. I know all this affects her but she refuses to let is spoil her happiness. She could not stop bouncing around happily, showering us with kisses, hugging us, saying I love you. She BELLOWED it after my parents when they visited. I need to learn something from this, not to get myself upset because I worry she is upset somewhere away from me. Looking forward to a few years time when we can exchange messages with her without them all being censored by mum...
