You know that most of us play around with Facebook a bit! We might pretend we don't look up a past partner just to see what they are up to, or maybe an old enemy to see if they have got their "comeuppance!" I am sure I have been guilty and stupid enough to do it
Stupid, because having once seen something you can't "unsee" it, so it often has been a regret.
So I imagine there might be a few who do the same with me!!
I do have a lot of "past"!
Theres no doubt, that my unpleasant ex husband did me a huge favour by buggering off to Spain nearly forty years ago! We were both pretty "sick tickets" during our marriage, two people who should never have had children together really, but we did -six of them! And I would not be without any one of them.
I don't care that he probably hated me, I wasn't too enamoured with him towards the end! In fact I think we both felt murderous towards each other!
But he left behind six wonderful bright funny beautiful children, and he hasn't seen them for over 30 years! There has never been a birthday card, Christmas card, graduation present,wedding present, "new baby" card. He was frightened of having to pay maintenance if we knew where he was!
He has never seen my grandchildren.
Does he know about them all? Well maybe! With social media being what it is, there is no doubt we are fairly transparent, and he was always a devious sort of chap! He presumably doesn't realise that we actually do know exactly where he is!
I am quite sure he has re-invented himself, and created a narrative that puts him in a better light, no doubt I would have done the same if I had behaved so abominably, you wouldn't want to advertise your abandonment (without money!) of six children, all under twelve.
So if he, or any of his cronies are "looking me up" - here's what he missed out on!
Thank f... he is out of our lives!
