XW had her bday on the weekend. No further invite to attend so I said nothing.

Iíve been polite but distant and disinterested in her various streams of consciousness that she tells me about and donít reply to texts and when I do itís several hours later.

Sons bday on the weekend too. I paid and organised it. She offered money which I accepted. My ngs side almost said no so i felt good accepting it without any uncertainty in my voice. I suppose i should have first asked for half but baby steps.

XW sent me happy bday text quite early this morning finishing with XX. I was a little shocked as this was the first sign of any affection whatsoever since bd. Does this mean anything?

I waited till this afternoon to respond, tying a Ďthanks Ď to a msg about S.
