Three years ago we split up because my wife was drunk when she picked our daughter up from nursery at lunchtime.

She wasn’t driving, thank goodness, but I knew then it was a real problem.

I insisted she got help, so she moved back in with her parents. They also helped me out with childcare while I worked.

We then went into lockdown so things were easier and my wife and I began talking again.

We’ve started taking baby steps towards getting back together.

She has really cut down on drinking, until last weekend.

We had a barbecue and she started boozing.

But she went way over the top and became verbally abusive towards me. She’s horrid when she’s been drinking.

The girls were scared and it has really put us back.
