ting, round five


So. Email from Kate this afternoon, responding point by point to B's email, mostly saying 'Ally is in the wrong and is an ungrateful cow'. It also says she is very upset that she had to find out that the Naming was going ahead from 'A Stranger'.

Oh, and she's phoned my mother again, to apologise for not being there this weekend.

My mother told me that she didn't want to get involved when I spoke to her this afternoon.

Pardon?

Shouldn't she have been telling Kate that, rather than me?

We are trying to rise above it all, but it's very hard. She clearly doesn't want to let things ride or make things up, she just wants to be RIGHT.

There's a lot of drama in the email about where they have left their wills, 'because they will be taking ten flights during their world trip'.

B is ill with the stomach bug I had - I am sure it's stress related.

I am so tired. I just want to enjoy our life and Leo and my pregnancy. I feel sick and the baby is so heavy inside me.

  1. Your mother must be at the end of her tether too. Yes, she should be saying that to Kate but it's quite possible she couldn't get a word in. She's got a lot on her plate too, with your father's health and yours to be concerned about - yes, that's no reason for her to brush you off; the very opposite in fact, but you've all had a bellyful of Kate and her tantrums.

    Phone calls are better than emails - it's too easy to get carried away with rhetoric when you're writing it down. I've had it happen to me, really flowery insults that the person would not have dreamed of saying. There's no point now in speaking to her now though, just ignore her. She's going away soon for a long time, let her make the first move when she gets back.

  3. Part of me wants B to ring her up and tear her off a strip - but I really don't think it will do any good, given her apparent state of mind. I think you're right - ten weeks of peace coming up.

  6. Hang on to the thought of that 10 weeks love!!! It's coming!!!

    Just a thought, couldn't you get your doctor to write something about your stress levels that Kate should read? I mean, she's obviously not helping her new grandbump very much, is she?
    I am serious, doctors carry weight, and perhaps Kate would listen if your doctor said something about keeping you as stress-free as possible.
