|She hasn’t got a point|
In the paper today, the ubiquitous Ms Mone is moaning about having to hand her kids over to their dad for the holidays.
It’s, according to The Scottish Sun and her Twitter account, “the hardest things she’s ever done”. Made worse, apparently, by the fact that her ex is with his new love – Samantha Bunn.
Tough tits Michelle. This is how it goes for so many of us. Of course it hurts to pass our children to their other parent for a chunk of the summer. Of course our houses echo empty and we cry alone once they’ve gone.
But do you know what we do, Michelle? We wipe our faces and get on with it. We don’t whinge about it somewhere our children might see nor do we snipe in public about ex’s new squeezes.
Why? Because we’re bloody grown ups and our kids didn’t ask for any of it. It’s not their faults and they have enough to deal with without the burden of knowing how bad mummy feels about it.
Certainly, the notion of some other woman caring for your children mightn’t be the happiest. The only solution is to stop thinking about it. You can’t reasonably consider that if you don’t want your husband any more, he shouldn’t be free to find someone else.
Grow up. Michelle, stop wallowing in self-pity. Michelle? What’s that… Oh, you’re off to London… What’s that? Parties, Olympics, photocalls, bra flogging…
