Single in Windsor and want to make new friends!
25 August 2019 at 11:22 am #29505
After 20 years of happy marriage my husband dropped a bombshell on our family life by announcing he no longer loved me and wanted a divorce! I had no idea! I’m now a year down the line and am renting, got myself a full time job and am supporting 3 older children who refuse contact with their father. I’m waiting for a court date as he refuses to split out assets fairly and I’m struggling to survive financially. Life is hard but I want to be happy again so would love to make new friends!25 August 2019 at 11:22 pm #29519
I am in a similar situation, although my ex is being reasonable about assets we are still living in the same house for now as its only been a few weeks, t’s so hard, I hope you get things sorted fairly, am in High Wycombe, would also like to make new friends. Annap26 August 2019 at 11:28 pm #29542

Won’t be smiling so much on Monday…! 😂29 August 2019 at 9:27 am #29663
I know – me too!! Don’t know how I’m going to manage to get up and out so early!! Have been enjoying staying up late! What subject do you teach? I’ve in Year 6 and a challenging class! Won’t have a moment to think about my problems!!😂30 August 2019 at 8:04 am #29778
I’m Head of English & do whole school mental health. My feet won’t touch the ground from Monday. 🙄
Just hoping school run plan works out with my (ex) husband getting here on time to take them so I can actually get there…30 August 2019 at 8:48 am #29782
I hope it all runs smoothly for you! I know I won’t sleep on Sunday night as I’ll have so much whizzing around my head plus I’m now having to do a longer commute and don’t want to be late! My son has to start a new school on Thursday as his father ( a headmaster!) refuses to continue paying his school fees. It’s all been a nightmare and my son’s MH has suffered. We’ve used CAMHS and Kooth online. Any advice to help with his anxiety would be greatly appreciated.31 August 2019 at 8:01 am #29840
Bless him, it’s horrible when there are such huge upheavals for kids to deal with.
Sounds like there’s good support in place for him already, so just keep talking openly & make sure key staff at the new school are aware of how he’s feeling & his MH history so there’s a good buddy in place to help him transition.6 September 2019 at 8:31 pm #30104
Hi, how’s the first week gone? Hope your son got on ok?6 September 2019 at 9:47 pm #30108
Hi Missy21 – thank you for asking! It’s been an exhausting week but a successful one. My son started on Thursday and after a tearful start he has thrown himself into his new school. I’m so incredibly proud of him and hope he carries on giving every opportunity a chance. He inspired me to attend the PA event tonight ( which I didn’t want to go to!) However I made myself go and am glad I did!
I hope you’ve had a good week too and your children have all gone happily back to school xx7 September 2019 at 9:46 am #30116
Youngest into Year 3, eldest into Year 7. A bit unsettled as ex hasn’t been well so have had to work out school runs & getting to work myself. Luckily survived thanks to a good friend’s help.
Now dreading a weekend with the girls & no particular plans as everyone’s busy. 😕 Hope you have a good one.8 September 2019 at 4:06 pm #30149
Same situation but its my wife who dumped me. We just got back from family holiday and she said she does not love me any more and want to have separate life and can not commit to marriage life. She felt that we are not like a marriage couple any more its more like best friends who raising children together. My Eldest age 9 and the youngest age 5.29 September 2019 at 7:38 am #30887
Hi, how’s everyone doing now?29 September 2019 at 8:50 am #30888
Hi Missy21 and everyone else too. How are you and your children Missy?
Life is so busy with juggling working full time, caring for my son and looking after 2 dogs and an old cat!! We’re settling into our new life but missing my 2 daughters who are away at uni. I’m not managing to find time to socialise as I want to be with my son whilst he still wants to spend time with me! I figure that I’m blessed that he wants my company and do cherish our time together. Financially life is really hard as a teacher’s salary doesn’t stretch to supporting 2 children at uni and rent/ bills/petrol….Not sure what else I can do to increase my income as I have no free time! Any ideas welcome.
