I have, for better or worse, become good friends with one of my mothers. I have helped her through all sorts of crises and I know that she would not hesitate to do the same for me.

She wants to come over this evening just for an hour to catch up a bit and I said yes but I should have said NO!!!!! SO cross with myself.

DS started full time school yesterday so he will be shattered. Her DS of 6 yrs old only went to bed at 10om last night so he will be finished by 6pm. Plus when our DS's get together and are tired there are either all sorts of nonsense or tears (although they adore each other).

Also we are away from tomorrow morning for the weekend and I want to get the house sorted tonight and of course DS will need to get to bed early!

GGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR How do I tell her it is NOT a good idea to come over at 6 tonight even if only for an hour!

stooopid me. sad

Wait till you pick up your DS from school, then phone her and say that you are going to have to cancel as DS is worn out from school.
have you both got facebook? You can always suggest a catch-up on chat.

Definitely reschedule, I am sure if she is a good friend she will understand. No doubt it's you feeling bad about it - I would be exactly the same about it.

wish i had rescheduled, crace. i changed the time to 5pm. she left at 6.40, i was shattered, the house was a tip and DS still needed to be put to bed.

and i am so sure that she wanted to tell me something....... she must have asked me 3 times how i was!!!
