Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

thanks guys!

we all went out for tea today, and I could see at once it did my mum good. she looked happier than she had done in ages. my sister said "can we move on and not say any more" I said yes, altho I wanted to talk about what had gone on I felt I have to let it go for the sake of my mum whos 80.

yes,i do feel im owed an apology from the nephew,but waiting for that is like waiting for him to get a job...

altho we all talked there was an  elephant in the room, and he was not mentioned.mind you, none of us see him much anyhow as he is usually in bed all day,a couple of times a year we see him.

so,my relationship with my sister has changed, but hopefully with some time can heal.

thanks again guys for some great advice xx

I posted on this thread a while ago about my sister not speaking to me. it was over her son being foul mouthed to me, its been over 2 months. well now she wants me to see her and our mum, whos old and been really worried by this. off course I will, ive tried many times to get in touch,apologise,even when I did nothing wrong!!

thing is, mum said she doesn't want to talk about what happened, and we should "put it behind us and move on". I just think its weird,dont most people talk about what happened? off course I want to move on,but to not speak about it?!I don't see how we can have our old relationship back,we confided in each other about many personal things.

 

Monty don new series

im grateful for any gardening programmes on tv as we are woefully underrepresented! I enjoyed it, but like others could not believe the amount of money spent. and I did like montys advice to the chap with the pond who wanted to do everything.

ive certainly got some new ideas for my garden.what are we going to do once gardeners world is finished?!!

What's the best book you've EVER read ?

I think the chap from the league of gentlemen steve somebody or other is doing it,and playing georgie, Miranda Richardson is I think playing mapp, and duck face from 4 weddings and a funeral is lucia,I think,i could be wrong.my mums friend was in rye in the summer and she saw them filming it.

im worried its going to loose the humour,and be cruel,i don't know why!maybe im being pessimistic ! hope not!!

yes,p.g.woodhouse,so loved the blandings series on bbc !

reading all of this about families makes me so sad.my sister still isn't speaking to me after a month.shes now speaking to my mum and other sister and thank goodness for that.i couldn't bare my mum being so upset.but what if the next time I see her its at someones funeral?what if she dies and I don't get to speak to her again?

I wish people would think long and hard before sending someone to Coventry.im not 6 years old.

Belfast sinks and their true value?

Posted: 18/09/2014 at 12:16

I had one left at my house and have filled in with flowers,but im not sure whether I would've bought one or not,but it is useful and looks good in the winter!

At my sisters house (that she is selling now) there is a huge double one(again left there) that I have filled with plants too, but me and husband nearly broke our backs moving it a couple of feet!so even tho id like to sell it, ive a feeling no one would be able to be able to put it in the back of a car!
