Ok, let me get this. You ordered your ex to build you a bookshelf and he is going to do it????????? You must be either pretty amazing or pretty frightening.

Er......maybe a bit of both 8) :twisted:
Actually, my ex husband and his partner and their children and me and our children are all on on very good terms. Happy families, they do exist. He is a very good and involved father to our children still. We all had Christmas together :D
Life's too short to waste time lugging around excess baggage.

Nice huh Antiq.

My oldest's dad was like that. We stayed friends after the divorce (actually never divorced) and he went on to have six little girls with his new "wife" and they used to visit and stay all the time. We would all holiday together at his mum's place too at the beachhouse. And we would holiday with his mum for the 15 years after we split (before he died). Amazing dad. We just didn't need to be married to each other. We still speak to Gran every week. She is a gift to everyone who knows her.

Funniest thing ever... they came to visit once and he stayed at my house (alot of babies to take out) with the kids, while me and the new "wife" went shopping... she wandered into a jewellers to look at engagement and wedding rings. The jewellers were the type to ask your name so they could adress you by name. "And you are...?" I answered " I am Mrs Mc.. ohhh but I am not looking for an engagement ring, she is"... "And your name is...?" She answered "My name is Mrs Mc too"... (she had taken his name without marriage so the children and they would all have the same name.) "So you are sisters!" "Oh noooo we are both married to the same man.... Mr Mc; well not married... THEY live in sin... I am married to him; but SHE wants the engagement ring" :)

He looked confused.... so I explained. "Look I am his first wife; they are in town to arrange OUR divorce so that THEY can get married... and I know its usually the guy who buys the ring but at the moment HES at home with the nine girls... well they aren't all MINE... six of them are HERS.... but they didn't want to get married until SHE wasn't pregnant.. YET again huh Nic?... sooooooo...."

:D :D :D It was a sad day when he died. A lovely man and an adoring father.

Then the Gods sent me the current ex......... The Gods can be real ba****ds sometimes..... Spawn of Satan (you never knew Satan was a woman huh)....
