This weeks Talk about it Tuesday starts with a book review.
I had been invited to the launch of The Missing Husband by Amanda Brooke, it is her fourth book, which called for a bit of a celebration.
This is a taster, and yes it is about a husband who goes out one day and doesn’t come home.
The book is an emotional roller coaster and draws on how that can affect mental health. I really recommend it, but it did make me anxious as I often start looking at the clock when my teen is due to come home.
Last night was a prime example, and I actually started to feel sick as I thought what if ‘’they don’t come home’.
My teen was out with friends all day at the local football pitch, the plan was to go to Mcdonalds afterwards and text home to be picked up, we guessed about 6.30ish.
But we heard nothing, and I had no reply to my messages, the calls went straight to voicemail, I drove to Mcdonalds they weren’t there, where was he?
As time went on I began to feel sick, I probably did frighten myself and over react but he doesn’t stay out late and as we live between a park and a wood we don’t like hm walking home alone as nightfalls.
After what felt like the longest night ever he came in, it was only 9.45 but this is late for him and we expected to see him around 7pm.
Turns out there was a problem with his phone, he wondered why he didn’t hear from us, he sensibly stayed with his friends & they walked home together. As we live a bit further on from the others my boy crossed the open field as to not walk through the park alone, he wasn’t frightened and felt fine but knew we would be worried.
We were so pleased to see him but questioned why he didn’t ask to use someone else’s phone, teenagers never think of the simple solutions.
