Happily my boyfriend is willing to try most things once, not least where lunch is involved! Having dandered around all the crystal and angel stalls and consumed said lunch, we decided to have a reading with one of the psychics, Ann Sinclair (pictured). Unfortunately she didn't do couples, so since my boyfriend has had such a tough time over the last few years I gave the reading to him in the hope he might derive some comfort from it.
Ann went on to say that one daughter would eventually realise that all was not as she had been told and want to see him again and that the other would follow.
He left feeling comforted as he has effectively been denied a voice where his children are concerned and has never been given an opportunity to talk to them.
On their side it is entirely understandable how his daughters would never consider their own mother might be less than honest with them, presumably in a bid to deter them from seeing their father and cause them to believe he was a worse man than he is.
We then bumped into some old friends of my partner's at the fair whom he hadn't seen for ages, so a very pleasant afternoon.
