should have been my anniversary yesterday.i had a (non-refundable)4 star hotel and a nice dinner booked then we were going to a casino.she had never been to one before and i know she would have
loved it
instead i went with my best friend to watch his son-my godson-play football then spent the night in his house watching darts with beer and kebabs
not how i imagined spending my anniversary but bless ''em they been great always been welcome in their home.his 13 y.o daughter has given me her laptop and 17 y.o son has given up his ''virgin media anywhere'' so i can use it.they also have an 11 y.o son and they all know me as uncle.they are about 15 mins walk from my parents'' house and when i walked home last night i text to say i was back my friend replied ''good the kids refused to go to bed until they knew you were safe''-not ashamed to admit i cried when i read it.that those kids would care so much about miserable old me really struck a chord.then i cried for my own kids and what they are having to go through right now.beer and kebabs were playin havoc with me this morning tho

Evening

The first of everything is always the hardest. What you have to remember is that you survived and that you are still breathing.

Must be a great feeling to know that people care for you and that they are prepared to watch out for you.

Look after yourself all of us on here understand what you are going through and how you are feeling.

All the best x

Hey IrnBru72

You sound like you have some good people around you during this tough time. Kids sound really conscientious for you too.

Keep going strong mate. Just asked for half the child benefit tonight from the ex. Wasnt happy even though I have my daughter half the time and she now earns more than me. But got to look after myself now. Hope the beer and kebab was good. I got a bit jealous!

Yes, the kindness of some people will make you cry. What a lucky guy you are to have such good friends- it brought tears to my eyes reading about it! Take comfort in the thought that people think so highly of you.

My friends saved my sanity and wikis - well, you know how good they are at rescuing people when they''re down.

Special days like anniversaries hit you hard, but as Home Alone says the first is always the worst and it''s behind you now. The next won''t be nearly so bad.
