Well... I totally forgot to get a post up this morning!

We are at the market in Cambridge... and I'm blooody cold!

We are in the shade and there's a bit of wind. 

At least I thought to bring a jacket, otherwise I'd be down the road buying one. As it is I'm seriously considering some warm socks. Lol

So far it's been very quiet sales wise. Hopefully it picks up. 

I'll be back later.

1.17 pm:  And the market was not a complete loss... I came out ahead at the end of the day.  But I won't be going out and celebrating!
It was nice to catch up with a few Cambridge friends too.

Got home to WW3 on my doorstep.  NOT FUN... I ended up locking myself in my bathroom with my fingers in my ears!

It's all quiet again now, and only Stew and I at home.  Not quite how the afternoon was supposed to go, but I'm over dealing with screaming, idiotic, unco-operative, intolerant bitches.

Two women, sisters, who used to get on fantastically together are now at total loggerheads.  And it's BOTH their faults.

One who promised 'NOTHING WOULD CHANGE'... but immediately stopped all contact with her sister and made it nearly impossible for a child to see it's mother.

And the other?  NO TOLERANCE, no compromise, expects everyone to jump to her tune.

And me?  the bloody sandwich in the middle.  Expected to do all the peacemaking, all the organising, getting it in the ear left, right and centre.

I quit.

And if you have NO IDEA what I'm on about, be thankful is all I can say.

And NO, there won't be a PEPSI update either.  It's clear what's going on to those who read PEPSI I'm sure.

I'm now going to relax and maybe even have a swim.

*LYNDA*:  Keera is indeed 'in the middle' as well... but in this instance I had sent the girls out to be with their Granddad, away from angry words.
And judging by Keera's behaviour afterwards, she was JUST FINE. 
Thank you for your concern.

This upset was more about how the girls made ME feel, because my feeling matter too.

9.30 pm:  Today wasn't fun.
The end.


  1. I hope your market goes well and that the sun has come up to provide some warmth 🙂

  2. Good news on the market. Bad news on the kids 🙄. Hope you're swimming on such a gorgeous day 🌞

    What a shame that a nice day has gone pear shaped and to bring dissent and into the new home here’s hoping after a cooling off period things can be settled.

    1. Nice to hear from you Blondie. Don't worry, THAT SHIT is never happening again. We are going to look after OURSELVES from now on, and that means no stress from kids and their petty, horrible squabbles ever again.

    They are big enough and ugly enough to sort out their problems without dragging you into it when you and Stew were looking forward to a peaceful life together

  5. No sympathy for the two adults, but hoping the child caught in the middle is okay.

    Jump in the pool and have a go with that resistance thingy that you bought great stress relief hopefully George's Mum.

  7. So sorry Chris that you are still enduring so much selfish and stressful,behaviour, you don’t deserve it, wake up you who are responsible shame on you, your parents especially your mother can only take so much, think about what you are doing to your mother, do you want to kill her with your behaviour, because that’s what stress build up of ongoing stress can do. Grow up, and be reasonable adults.

  10. Very angry what has happened.These two grandchildren will pay dearly for their actions,treating their mother in such an inconsiderate way.Thank you our friends for supporting my daughter,I just do hope thechildremn are not to AFFECTED THE OLD MOO.

  11. Your Mum is very supportive Chris, but then you have only ever treated her with total love and respect. What goes around, comes around.
