    Hi ImpulseSpender,

    Thanks for your support.

    Sky - I just phoned and said I wanted to cancel, then they say they will look at what discounts they can offer you. We went through what package we have and decided that we wanted to keep it as it was and she said they could do it for half price. In my experience even if they do not offer you a deal over the phone if you go ahead and cancel they write to you before cancellation date and offer you a deal.

    Good luck with your haggling!

    So, just when I think things are turning around not so DH drops a bomb shell over the phone...................he doesn't love me anymore and is not coming home, this is a repeat performance of last year and has left me to tell DD on my own again.....:(

    Completely fed up, it has been difficult but I stupidly thought things were improving but how wrong I was.

    Now I am left going it alone.

    That's it now, it's time to try and pick up the pieces and go it alone.

    So sorry Treadingwater, that is awful. If this is a repeat performance from last year will be he come back again and beg forgiveness? It sounds like you deserve so much better.

  • I'm sorry, TreadingWater, it is cruel to be working on something together and to get a cowardly bombshell like that :mad:

    Thanks for all the support, it is at times like this you really do find out that lovely people to exist.

    It is definitely over, no going back, I'm not prepared to put myself or my DD through this anymore. It feels rubbish at the moment but I know it will get better eventually. I'm just taking one day at a time. I'm just so tired of feeling like this.

    I didn't want to just read and run

    Sorry to hear about the situation with your DH , It never feels like it at the time but if he isn't committed to having a successful and happy life together then it is probably the kindest thing

    The rubbish feeling will pass however let it flow through and out - One day you wake up and its no longer the first thing you think about xx
