5th February 2018
James is in Whistler with Amelia. I’m relatively ok with this but the children were asking to see him. I’ve explained he’s away for a few days but they don’t understand why they’re not on holiday with him. This is just something that they need to get used to but it’s so hard explaining to two young children who still believe that the world revolves around them. I’ve promised to take them to the zoo this weekend and this seems to have distracted them.
We are so busy at work that I could do with James being here to take the children for a few hours. But, there’s no right time for him to be away, and he’d probably be caught up at work anyway. To be honest, life is really no different to this time last year – I suppose I’m now looking for reasons to get frustrated with him.
Deep breath. I can do this.
