Glad your son had a good time Tracey. Perhaps the poor lad wanted to come over, but had to do what his mum 'told' him

Nuisance phone calls grrrrr 

Its bad enough when you have to come running in from the garden, or you are just about to serve up a meal/just sat down to eat it.......but ITS EASTER SUNDAY!!!!!!!

Agree totally Lily, the other week I had a right go at a girl trying to 'sell' PPP rubbish....she told me I was being rude so I told her I hadn't asked to be called and had every right to be rude!!!  She put the phone down on me

Well done with the PPI callers OL. I'm not even that polite to them any more...

Re your son's friend - there are so many parents who expect others to look after their children without reciprocating - not acceptable. You end up being taken for a mug. Very difficult to handle though. Enjoy the peace 

Had a cold call also, explained was with my children so couldn't talk, he expressed delight at a traditional Easter gathering, I asked if he had a family, oh yes he replied, so I told him to go away and enjoy Easter with his family.

LOL AWB.

Fairy I wasn't actually that polite which is why she told me I was rude!!!  I actually save their numbers into my phone when they call now under 'Don't answer' so we don't even pick up the calls!  I also don't answer withheld numbers after getting a couple do funny phone calls recently

I know the garden needed it, and I know it has saved me a job watering all the pots etc. And I know it has saved me some money because our water is on a meter now, BUT PLEASE CAN IT STOP RAINING!!    Its been raining all day!!

Being only able to find one shoe.  I would rather find no shoes than one shoe.

Being taken for an absolute mug and made out to be some kind of muppet makes me very very cross  I won't be falling very any more s*** any more

OL- don't be hard on yourself. It's because you're caring and kind that it happens.

Just remember, that's a better way to live, and you're a better person by being that way 

KEF
