Hi. We have been separated since May 2013. The children are just back from their holiday. They seem happy enough but the elder child (daughter) was distraught when her father left. Both are reticent to talk about the holiday. I get the impression they had been instructed not to mention the girl friend. My husband only informed me that she had joined them for the holiday as he went out of my front door having dropped the children off. As she had come across from Australia it is obvious that it was well planned in advance and I feel he should have told me beforehand. Whilst I don't have a problem in him having a girlfriend, I do feel that I am entitled to know who he was introducing them to. It is all so underhanded and as previously mentioned typical of his tendency to devious behaviour.
