I am absolutely terrified at the moment!
Today around 5pm my DP went to his local pub to watch cricket and catch up with a mate. He said he would walk home (about a 20 min walk) if the weather was ok, otherwise take a taxi. I don't have a phone at the moment so I kept his with me and our kids. He told me I could call his friend if I needed to get in touch with him. At 11:30pm I called his mate to let my DP know that I was going to bed but that I wanted to leave the keys somewhere outside, so he could lock himself in. Our friend told me that DP in fact had left the pub just before 10pm. Apparently my DP was quite drunk, which is quite out of character for him.
I didn't have much choice but to go to bed, hoping that I would wake up from DP coming in, in the middle of the night, but it is 3:50am and he is still not here. Now, hardly any pubs were open yesterday, and most of them closed relatively early, so I am getting really worried. Also, most of our friends are away/not out drinking yesterday, so I cannot imagine him running into anyone on his way home.
The walk home is slightly scary; it is a busy and slightly dodgy area of Sydney at nighttime (from Glebe to Newtown) so all these worst case scenarios are running through my head, and I cannot do anything but wait.
We have a family party tomorrow, and he is always on his best behaviour for these, so I expected him to be home quite early to prevent himself from drinking too much and go there with a massive hangover. This whole thing is so out of character for my DP, and I am terrified.
I just got off the phone to the local police station, and the emergency department at our local hospital, and none of them has recorded any contact with DP tonight.
Please send me positive vibes, people!
