We do need to get together a bit more but it is difficult with my work hours till after Christmas. We are taking it slow but we started off from a position of respect for each other.
About what Redpepper said, we had to tell our children very soon after it started. The bigger ones had worked it all out anyway but it is the talking to them about it that is important.
