James’ solicitor has confirmed that we will hold a roundtable meeting to talk about finances. It seems like quite a while ago that Marilyn suggested this meeting and I can’t say I’m looking forward to it but it is so much better than us going to court.
James called last night. He’s going to have the children back for two extra days over half term. I’ll work and save my holidays for Christmas – a topic that James touched on too. Christmas. It feels like the elephant in the room but we will have to save that conversation for another time. I want to be with the children – they are still so young – but I want them to see James too. I have to think about this some more.
James also shared that his parents feel that they haven’t seen the children enough recently and that they’re missing out on being grandparents. Talking this over with Marilyn, her position is that it is up to James to arrange a suitable time for them to see the children whilst they are with him. I will call them though to reassure them that I’m fine with them seeing the children whenever they are with James.
