I am sorry that I didn't get here last night.
I lost my taste for the internet for a little while last night after my sister and my cousin started to have a slanging match on my FB page. I deleted the post as it was not what I wanted on my page, then my cousin "deleted" me after I refused to get involved in their argument!! The YFG is now upset because she was going on a trip with my cousin in a week or so, and now doesn't want to go, and I am fed up with the whole thing!
They do say that you can choose your friends but not your family and I see what they mean! I try to not fall out with anyone, and managed to be friendly with both my sister and my cousin, even though they can't get on with one another - but now it seems that I can't do right for doing wrong. The ball is now in my cousin's court, and if she has withdrawn communications, that is up to her. I had an arrangement with her parents that they would all come here on Boxing Day so I shall ring my aunt in a week or two and see how the land lies there.
And you know what? This is a day I could have done with a little support from some of these people, not a falling out....
This is our 18th wedding anniversary. Married in the registry office up in Fife, with only local friends around us, we had a lovely day. The EFG was 12 weeks old, and we had neighbours and friends from the town with us to celebrate.
November has always been the month I have associated with the FH with it being his birthday month and the month of the wedding anniversary. It is nearly over now, and we have Christmas and the EFG's homecoming to look forward to. We are thankful for everything we shared, and the children we raised together. I am very thankful for the support of friends just lately - friends have been the bedrock of this time.
I'll see you all tomorrow - and don't forget to pick up your copy of the paper today if you want an Aldi voucher!
