I wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all the people who sent me lovely supportive PMs and posts over the last couple of days. (In case any of you didn't read my comments on the Mrs D thread).
After DS' good audition yesterday, a wonderful celebratory meal with my DH and boys last night, a decision about the way forward and a better night's sleep, I feel so much better today.
I was also reminded last night that even though I felt the need to run away from here, I should not allow people to make me do that. If the type of the comments I've received were made to my son in the playground I'd be telling him to ignore them and have faith in himself. So I am leading by example and won't be pushed out.
Normal service has been resumed!
(Normal for me anyway )
