Me and my older sister managed to break the final back of it this week with 5 runs to the dump, man-and-van (sob) and finally a removals van/trailer to get the decent stuff to our houses. She did forget about one glory hole with a selection of fur coats in it. I left that to her.

Mind you our place looks like a bomb just hit it. It took three crates and several shopping bags just to empty the fridge/freezer and food cabinets. A king size bed has taken over two rooms and my car is still half loaded.

Maybe it's the impetus we need to have a de-cluttering session.

Just a final vac over, last few things and hand over the keys. My sister will do this next week.

Now need to sort through things, remove duplicates and get yet more stuff down to re-cycling

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

People who use the last of something and never think of replacing it, sometimes I think my lot think a wee magic fairy comes in and does this. Another pet hate of mine is when someone puts a empty milk bottle back in the fridge

Take today for example I have replaced the soap and bubble bath in the bathroom and the kitchen roll in the kitchen.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Just saw my lad off on the train to London, and he flies out from Heathrow to Melbourne tomorrow - he has 3 months left on his visa, then he's off to NZ or Canada.

We have our differences, but I miss him when he's not in the UK.

My thoughts are with you dilli as you seem to go through one thing after another and still remain positive.

---------- Post added at 21:53 ---------- Previous post was at 20:12 ----------

Warning I'm having a rant.

Today I had lunch with my Dad this date was arranged last week.

The day was going well until he asked if I could take him to Dobbies garden center for a tree and I did this no problem once there I quite innocently asked where are you planting it Dad, in where he said I'm not your sister asked me to get it for her. Apparently he mentioned that we were going for lunch and going to a few garden centers then he openly said to me I was hoping you wouldn't ask that question.

Then I just said Dad how are you going to get it to her house and he said I'm not she is going to pick it up from mine then I said and how is it getting to your house he said via your car at this point I just laughed and said no way am I going to transport a tree for her in my new car and to be honest Dad I think the pair of you have a dam cheek expecting me transport a tree for her giving the fact that both of you know I want nothing to do with her and what makes it worse is the very underhanded way you both went about this.

I do think it is ironic that my sister and my Dad just a couple of months ago were having a pop at how there was no need for me to purchase such a big car blah blah blah and how I waste money, yet now that so called big car comes in handy. Oh it's such pity she will never know just how handy it is having such a vehicle.

The day's of me being used by them or should I say allowing myself to be used seem to be long gone I'm very proud to say!

I must say that I'm quite shocked as my Dad has just phoned and said how sorry he was but he did not see a problem and thought I wouldn't mind doing them this favour but with hindsight he can see that both of them should have asked if I was ok with this.

I don't think my father has ever said sorry in his entire life so I'm actually sitting here in complete shock. Hubby said it's because he is worried about his shopping tomorrow and tbh I don't really care the reason he apologised it's the fact that he admitted they should have asked and not expected.

You're talking kids and partners aren't you...

As regards making difficult decisions, I've decided that Osem Jnr # 2 will have to go into full time care when he finishes college. It's not that I don;t love him, it's because I've finally accepted that I/we can't look after him forever. We need our own lives and the sad truth is that we can't have that and be full time carers for him. It breaks my heart to admit it after all these years but I have done and nothing will change my mind now.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Osem your posts about both your sons screams out just how much you love them and trust me this can be clearly seen by all.

I can only imagine the heart break at having to make such a difficult decision and it must be a catch 22. What do you for the best do you wait until you can no longer care for your son in where Osem Jnr #2 could be emotionally traumatised by losing everything at once and all that is familiar to him without you being there to offer your continued support, or do you do accept what is best for all.

Osem don't beat yourself up about this as you can still give emotional support.

Everyone concerned in Osem Jnr #2 life needs the peace of mind that he will be settled and content in full time care and I think you have made a very difficult decision out of love for your son.

Take care

Our twins are now 26, and I find myself spending so much of my time repeating instructions to get them to fend for themselves more and more. Some things they pick up after a while, but other skills seem beyond them. We are their full time carers as there are no other options available since all the cuts for austerity by HMG and councils.

I know exactly how you feel Taf. It's a horrendous responsibility and it takes a great toll on you and everyone else in your life. Nobody could say you haven't done your best for them after all those years of caring. I wish you well.
