This is the email trail in response to Jacs sending me a breakdown of household costs:
Martin: I think so, thank you much appreciated.
I already send 1700 over so don't think I have to amend anything just yet. Please let me know if that is different,
Jackie: I will keep an eye on it for you just to make sure it all looks OK
Martin: brilliant thxs.
Jackie: You’re getting a good deal out of this as I spend way more than you LOL
Martin: many thxs...we never knew did we how we each spent.. shame about that eh!!
Jackie:Of course I always spent more it’s in my genes!
Martin: I must have had some of those as well, I seem to have been at Tesco's endlessly,, lol
But yep it is in your genes, its one of your endearing qualities, your very generous.
Jackie:Can I just confirm that you are def having Jamie 14th – 18th April? I can then sort out my leave for week 1.
Martin: yes definetely i will have him.
Jackie:Cool, will you be having him that weekend, or are you working? I don’t mind either way
Martin: not sure, would you mind if I get back to you. I am not being awkward..
Jackie: No that’s fine. It’s just it’s Toni’s 21st party on the Friday and If Jamie is coming home Saturday I won’t stay round Kim’s and wil be home for him
No problem either way
Martin: That sounds like too good a plan for me not to help out, by all means I will look after him. You go have a blast with Kim..
What ever happens we/I will cope..
Jackie:No, seriously it’s not a problem to be at Mum’s. I know you need to work.
Iv’e just topped up Jamie’s school dinner account with £50. He eats nothing but Pizza and calypso drinks! We need to start stuffing him with vegetables at home!
Martin: I am fine honest, he will be ok with me.
He's also being a bit more vocal on stuff as well.. bless him lol !!
I will try and feed him with good stuff he had the fajitas last night.
Jackie: Is he, like what? I have told him to tell me and you how he is feeling and not to worry about hurting our feelings as we both want him to be happy.
Martin: I have told him the same,
But the weekend was a classic example.
He arranged his own sleepover round Jamie Millers then came home for his shorts then stayed..
I really didn't have a chance to talk to him about the dinner or the change, I just went with your plan and he changed it. I told him when he came in that he was going with you at 11am then he decided that he didnt want to go..despite me telling him about it..
As ever Jake is getting on his nerves but me reckon thats normal.
Anything else I have told him that he needs to tell you if he has a problem, just like you.. I cant tell you otherwise he wont talk to me..I do support you and do not run you down.
Jackie: Snap, thanks.
