that i am not seeing them at all over Christmas.....which is the same thing that happened last year.

Its my Dad's birthday today and they cancelled seeing us as my mum couldn't face the journey (55 miles)

I am disappointed i am trying to be grown up about this and not be bitter but that means they won't see my DS who is two at all over christmas. I am more upset for him than for me :-(

That is such a shame for you all. Is the weather bad near you? I know it is like sheet ice trying to get into our village!

No the weather isn't bad here at all and the roads are clear
I feel its a lame-o excuse
Of course they were happy to see my sister who lives 7 miles away

oh well another year over and all that....
its helping reading this as i am learning that christmas with kiddies can be STRESSFUL

Is it the weather? Is it anxiety with your mother? She thinks she can when you talk about it in Nov but panics just before?

Can you not get to them?

We haven't been to their house in over a year......

I am starting to think that my mother has MH problems i.e. OCD and anxiety. She refuses to come down to see us yet won't have us at their house its all very strange and its starting to get to me

maybe i should be posting on the MH thread. Aren't you are supposed to sit around with family talking about christmas past and all that and i am sitting on my own with DS asleep

its all a bit sad and unfathomable :-( DH is at church

Look - for this Christmas just focus on your DH and your little one. Have fun. Enjoy the lack of stress at entertaining family members. Go out for a walk if nice, laze around etc... Enjoy it. Then after New Year look to whether anxiety is overtaking your mother's behaviour. It will wait.

Have fun tomorrow. Enjoy your family.
