    talk me down please 21st Apr 14 at 12:12 AM
    Ok 10 years ago me and OH took MIL and Aunty away the plan was during this break we would invite em to the wedding.
    Before we could they stormed off and refused to answer any of my OHs calls.
    OH tried to get them to talk didn't happen and the wedding went ahead.
    Eventually OH and MIL are reconciled 2 years on another argument is provoked eventually reconciled then a big bust up about her not being at our wedding then reconciled rinse and repeat.
    MIL has been diagnosed with terminal cancer we have been ensuring she has company food etc (regular visits) I went to her appointment with her last Fri then last Sat OH goes around to see her and the wedding row was provoked again she went in for an op Mon telling OHs sister the auntie nephews etc to not tell my OH she was in or the ward or when the op was.
    OH is upset so I get the hospital info so at least we can find out how she is.
    We went to see her at the hospital on Fri aft and discovered shed been discharged in the morning.
    Still not called OH no contact nothing.
    I am livid my OH has been beside themselves and deeply upset (which is the intention) she can't even allow people to say she is ok.
    So how do I keep my OH on a nice even keel and stop myself from telling her off?

    Lordy! Lordy!
    You'll have job offers coming out of your ears, Melly.

    Love the hair colour.

    I've just had my 'past-shoulder-length' hair cut very short - maybe an inch-and-a-half on the top.
    I put a colour on - it's 'intense copper' and I like it.
    I may try 'mango' next.

    Had a wobble
    So it's less than im worth and what they tried to Get the agency to look for (you don't get NVQ level 5 and 7 years experience mainly in extremely hazardous sites for 160 a day)Would be money coming in though.

    Then I remembered that they wanted to pay that and were told that you don't get what they want for thst so they were sneaky and that's not somewhere I would want to work

    Still waiting for 2nd interview
    Have got an interview on Thursday for somewhere a mate works so yay.

    Managed to get OH to understand he needs to be looking at the positive
    So he can't breathe as well, he CAN breathe, so sometimes it's difficult to eat, we thought he'd be on a bag at one stage.

    Seems to have helped

    I am having a missing my dad day, no reason why, not any anniversary could just do with a no nonsense love I think.
