    Hello all,

    Sadly my ex partner recently passed away very suddenly. We have been separated for 10 years and have had very little contact over these years but have remained civil and have maintained regular contact regarding our 15 year old daughter.  I now find myself (gladly and willingly) in the role of a full time parent and am finding this daunting as I’m very much out of practice (and I’m 60 !).  I have many questions going around my head with regard to social services involvement etc but I guess my post is an attempt to try to find out “where do I go from here” ?
