Hello, it’s me. Today was Milly’s 6th birthday. Sadly she spent the day at school. Not the best way to spend your birthday but I think she had fun. We made cakes last night for her class, and one for each of her teachers AND the Headteacher and Deputy. Such a kiss arse! Like me…. hehe. We had a great holiday in our tent, we went to Devon for two weeks. It rained solidly,...
Milly is 6
Not been here in a while. Came back from holiday hoping for an email from Dad. Nothing. Two months. I know I said I was giving up, I might cave soon. This was a Dad blog. Now it’s a parent blog. I know why you moved away Mum. And I understand it. I do. This morning Milly came into our bedroom, she had a cuddle then took herself off to find her uniform, get herself dressed, brush...
I’ve decided. I know I have said it before. But I’m giving up trying.
Two weeks I waited for this. Two long weeks.

I spent a sunny day in St Albans with my girl, my Nanna and her friend Wend. I wanted to document what Nanna and Wend mean to each other. They always call each other sis. Sometimes when Wend is telling Nanny off she calls her Sarah Jane. Sometimes my Nanna is quite dominant with Wend, like a big sister. They must’ve been friends for fifty years plus. They are quite literally like sisters....

Footfall on wet paving. Rapid, uncontrolled, caring not for their next impact. Breathing jagged, panting. Stacatto, exherted grunts, unthinking, unbidden. A light, sapphire blue, pulsing, pulsing, pulsing. A skitter and skid, rubber sole straining to a halt, leaving just raw, shuddering breaths,… Wow Rob.

Hello Dad, Sorry it’s taken a while. As ever it’s been busy here. Firstly, I’m delighted that you liked the Fathers Day card. When I sent it, I want you to understand, that my intention was not to make you feel guilty. To be honest, that’s the last thing I want. I don’t want you guilty and I don’t want to carry on with this contact if that’s how it...
don’t relish the thought of him turning up on my doorstep either.
Well good morning to you ‘Carly Sarah’ and the Woodall cookie crew fank’s for the card which sparked the usual angst but had a very nice outcome Emma came in from work and asked ‘wot’s the matter dad’?I’m feeling guilty ‘well you shouldn’t you’ve been a good dad to me I’m sure you would have been as good to Carly &...
Email I've been waiting for arrived. Bad timing.
Crying crying crying. I don’t want him guilty. I should never have started this. Such a messy mess.
Still not replied to that Godforsaken email. Have, however just posted a Fathers Day card. Hhhmmm.

So I run. And one of my runs from the village of Wheathampstead takes me through Lamerwood golf course. Lamerwood was an exclusive leisure facility set within beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, but recently things have changed. As a golf course Lamerwood has died, but in the process it has been…

a very late reply..............
Ok, hello, here goes, this’ll be a longun and sorry for the delay. I didn’t get a place on the course, this is for the best. I’d waited a very long time for that interview, 6 years. Too long. I rushed into it because my degree was finishing and was frightened of not having my future mapped out in front of me. It would have meant very long days away from the children for...

Hello, so sorry for the delay. So sorry also to hear about the loss of your friends. All is well here. Ben and I have been at a child free wedding this weekend, we had the most wonderful time. Only slightly tainted by me getting too drunk and returning to the bar in my pyjamas, semi-humiliating us both, then running off to the the loo to puke. I made it to the loo. This makes the puking...

not been here for a while
Just checked my email and there’s no news from Dad. Not really bothered. Feels fine. Saw Lucy and Lucas today. He’s five weeks now and has changed lots and is so amazingly gorgeous. Smells fantastic. I think I need to build up my blogging confidence again. It’s had a few knocks lately which is such a shame because I really liked this little space. My little sister Molly is...
I have this burning, persistant desire to bare all here. I really feel it today. Like there is so much more to tell and explain. Today is one of those days. I think I’m getting closer and this is the nearest I’ve ever been. Today has been poo thus far. I am miserable. I need to cheer the hell up.
All I really wanted to say was....
…. Look at Lucas! Look at your Grandson. Eugh. This is doing my head in today. I need to sleep. And I swear, if he spells Millys name wrong one more time I’m gonna tell him. I am.
