23rd December 2017
I’ve had time to reflect on James’s night out and to be honest, I’m still hurting. I don’t blame Michelle for going out with them but I wish I didn’t know about it. The photograph makes it worse, of course. I know it’s a snapshot of one moment during the evening but there they were, all laughing together and obviously having a fun night out.
Another thing that has niggled me is that James turned up today, expecting me to have bought presents for his nephews. Can you believe it? I fully appreciate that this is what I’ve done for the past 17 years but we are no longer a couple. I almost laughed out loud at his expression when I told him that this is no longer my role and couldn’t Amelia help him with his shopping? I confess to there being a certain amount of satisfaction with this one.
