clucking hell


We are going to see B's parents on Wednesday afternoon, with the children.

I don't want to go. She is still making 'Ally should pull herself together' noises when she speaks to B on the phone. She offered us lunch - but I can't bring myself to eat her food when she is so obviously still hostile toward me.

Gah.

In other news, tomorrow, we collect the chickens. Yay!

  1. Well, it sounds to me like you're doing really well, so what there is to pull together about you I do not know. Perhaps it is time for her to wind her fecking neck in, eh?

    Chickens!!!!

  5. If I could point out that a couple of years ago you were still exploring the emotional fallout from a prior relationship and a few really life shatteringly nasty experiences; had tried so long to have a baby that you'd given up and to cap it all had just found out that the anti-depressants you were (deservedly) prescribed for being battered and childless were the one thing barring you from qualifying to adopt.

    Be serious, Ally, your life was so depressing they would have turned it down as a plot for Brookside.

    You are indestructible. You laid down and the steam rollers came and ran you over and here you are. So undented you're practically shiny.

    You? "Pull yourself together?" Is that the best she can come up with, because its so far off the mark its making me laugh.

    Harumph. Silly old *um* mother-in-law.

  7. Well said Cheryl, although I didn't start reading you early enough to know about some of it. It is not a joke that mother-in-laws can be awful. I found the best bit about getting divorced was making the in-laws into out-laws. Hope all goes well, and "don't let the bastards grind you down"!

  9. As I'm reading this on Wednesday afternoon, you are just about ready to come away from ma-in-law now, aren't you? You will have survived, as usual and you, B and your cosy, lovely family can come home without a backwards glance at a woman who just isn't understanding anything at all. feck her, is my view too. Who needs it?
