It's amazing

Visible to anyone in the world

that someone who is not a part of your life

can have such a profound effect on it.

Strange!! Don't blame you for defending yourself from being placed as piggy in the middle... I am making a visit to my brothers tomorrow. I am uninvited and doing it out of a tick the box kind of duty. I cast myself now as the wicked fairy godmother, I suppose this is in reaction to me being the black sheep for 35 years until I stopped speaking to all (occasionally my sister though) for more than a year and I disliked that the family had recast me as the prodigal daughter who was suddenly wanted to be part of the family. I just thought it either illogical or hypocritical. After all, I hadn't changed, all that had changed was that I reached a tipping point of suddenly finding the prospect of not spending any time at all with family much more comfortable/desirable than the prospect of spending time with them! ( apart fom my sister, I did feel sad about her) Families!! All have their own little strange ways, but mine are weirder than most

Hello Rosie,

Yes, sure i'm getting too hooked up with the OU, maybe i should get the right balance between juggling time with my kids, work and leisure.

Just so frustrating.

Emily, I suspect we could compare notes!  Overall I am finding life much easier.  But mind-games throw me.  I am a really honest person.  That's not to say I don't lie - I do.  But only to an extent.  My friends often end my sentences with is that true?  And I say No!   Sometimes I just get carried away with my story ;)

I hope your visit goes well - good luck!

Sharon, the OU is an addiction.  It cannot be balanced!  It must be overcome ;)

Joann, yes, it's true.  Would help if they'd stop posting stuff through my letterbox though ;)

On +ive note -

LOL That was definately a terriffic What big grin gave me a good laugh;

also loved that you are the only one to post really helpful (to me) info (past post) on what other ways there are to cook sprouts, that was good, I never knew what I could do other than boil them, after Christmas day, now I'm going to have a go at adding to soup, and the stir-fry, thankyou smile so now you might get click likes every time you mention sprouts, not cos of anything sad/bad that you also may write about in same post (thought I'd best clarify lol).

On other things -

sorry you are having probs  re the 'certain person' sad and hope things improve trully soon. x.
