I am livid with my ex-husband. He has been an **** for a long time and the list of dreadful things he's done is extensive. In the scheme of things this seems quite trivial, but it has really upset our daughter and soooo I am out for blood now. Because our daughter's 6th form college is easier to travel to from his house than mine she moved in with him and his new family (which was upsetting, but I live with this now) about 18 months ago. It's coming up to her finals and of course this means a prom. For her end of school prom I bought the dress and drove her and her mates around sorting everything out. She assumed that her Dad would buy her a dress for the next prom. We're not talking a huge expense here, she is a realistic and sensible girl and knows that money is hard to come by. He has decided that he can't afford to buy her a dress because he just bought his step daughter a prom dress which cost £200. He has instead given her a dress that her step-sister doesn't want any more. I am so angry I'm shaking. I'm a bit broke at the moment but we're going to the Blue Cross sale on sunday - I will not have her unhappy and feeling frumpy at her prom - she is angry that I have to pay again, I've told her that I will love going shopping with her, but that we have to have a tight budget. She has offered some money out of her university savings (no no no). That's it really, just cross and needed to tell someone so I can avoid slagging her Dad off in front of her (a principle of mine). AAAAAARGH There I feel a bit better now.
