Well they are gone

Or will be on Sunday

Their bathroom isnít done, their kitchen isnít done

But they need to leave

Because the truth is work expands to fit the time available

And I feel bad but I know this could go on for ever

And they need to gather their family and go

And once I lived in a home where I beat the mud floors daily , our only water was drawn from the well

And I had Six kids

I washed everything by hand

So Iím holding fast, if I donít there will be no Christmas here

Because Iím running out of time to sort it

And I have 5 other children and 9 more grandkids who expect a Christmas here

Stay strong, Sandra.

We moved into our second renovation project on New Years Day. It had one cold tap. No bathroom. It was a single brick construction which meant it was damp and, of course there was no form of heating apart from the fireplace in the front room.

We had no children then but we did have two horses and a dog to care for. Come to think of it that was about the time that my asthma developed. The property was always damp even after Chris built a bathroom and a kitchen, installed central heating and decorated the whole place through. Told me afterwards that he hated the place from the minute we walked in the door, but it had an acre of land for my beloved horses.............

And it led us here.

Always hard knowing when to call "time" we had to do it on one daughter as our power bill went up by 3000Ä in a year as they used power like it was going out of fashion.....

The redecorating bill afterwards was also horrible but it was done and we still talk to each other frequently !

Thinking of; Mavis, Ray, Sandra and Albert at this time.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I recon our power bill will be horrendance

But we can live with that

Iíve given up on this house

Their stuff remains everywhere

Shoes, coats, washing , kids , whatever the last bought is just dumped

The fridge overflowing with half open things that I sealed in boxes

But no more , it doesnít remain there

The kids use the new ignore the old

Iím really knackered , it doesnít sit easy with me

I just can no longer cope, Iíd rather shut myself in my bedroom and read, ignore the chaos around me

I really tried to organise it but Iím defeated

Iím no longer 50

Even stacking the dishwasher every day, clearing the kitchen after 7 , without counting bottles and a crying baby who is only happy held

Counts as a days work to me

Iím beginning to feel my age and my rubbish joints

So yes they need to go and I donít really care if they havenít a bathroom or kitchen

They should have, they have been here three months

So maybe now they get their asses in gear

And now I need to face 4 beds, loads of towels which need to washed and dried

And clean the house.....again

Itís enough

Sandra

Why is it kindness almost always gets abused.
I do feel for you Sandra, we have done this twice with people who were not even related, starts off OK, one couple were looking for a place to live and we put them up while they were looking, the other was a young man of 23 from the next village who's parents had separated, he stayed with his Father and finally fell out with him so we said he could live here until he found a flat, he was here for 8 months, but when there is no attempt to find a place and move you no longer feel charitable.

Oh there was a third, my MiL, we found her a lovely little bungalow in sheltered accommodation she was supposed to stay with us for a couple of weeks while carpets were laid and other things were done to the bungalow, took 10 weeks to finally get her to go.
I sympathise I really do.

But in spite of all

Iíve met my sons partner, her kids , their new baby

Lived with them cheek to jowl for a month , following that they had already demolished my lovely home
On the two months prior to that

I recon Iím brilliant , I remain close to my son , his daughter who has basically lived here, his partner, her two kids and their new baby, my born a bit late grandson

And I recon weíll see plenty of them all once they leave , I think we are friends

It could have been worse

And Archie dissolves into smiles every time he looks at Albert, heís almost chocking to get out a chuckle

He has that affect on babies in supermarkets where some mums glare ate him , does he look like an aged
Child molester ?

But Iíll be so glad to see them go

Reclaim my home and my sanity

Sandra

It must be us Jan

We gather up ex partners, married or not

Megís dad, Izzys mum

Keep them in the fold

And they remarry and bring their kids to visit us

And we are more than delighted to see them

Our Megs is courting

Lovely word

But heís off soon to travel soon to places afar

She will join him for a three weeks holiday

Tell me I said, have you ever thought of eloping ?

I recon I could finance an elope

Didnít work though

A lawyer in the making
