me thinks mummy is playing at cilla

Having read about your mum and the key etc I'd assume she thinks she can get you two back together. Tell her you'd rather gouge your eyes out with a rusty spoon..

He is having the boys tomorrow night, so he is welcome to go round there with them, but I won't be there!!

Baffy Fri 17-Aug-07 10:32:54

Say 'as long as you don't mind me bringing a date'!!

How strange!

Did you ever get the key thing sorted?

Pinkchampagne Fri 17-Aug-07 10:33:15

Lol DDF! Good reply!!

Pinkchampagne Fri 17-Aug-07 10:34:35

I have all my keys back, and atm I am keeping the key in the front door because I can't afford to change the locks yet.

Dropdeadfred Fri 17-Aug-07 10:37:23

Does he have hopes of the two of you reuniting? If so, and assuming it's not on your agenda, I would nip this in the bud straight away and tell her it's not going to happen.

Baffy Fri 17-Aug-07 10:37:54

Ah glad you got them all back

Can you find an ex of hers and reply

"Yes, I'd love to come! I'm bringing your old flame x, btw so wear something racy"

I am not sure what they are playing at tbh.
I made it clear to ex H from the beginning, that there was no chance of me changing my mind, and he hasn't been pestering me, but has become very close to my parents (has only just moved from their house to his own!), and he still wears his wedding ring.
I do feel my parents are desperately hoping I end up back with him, and they appear to be in an odd state of denial, even now that we are both in our own houses.
It is really doing my head in!

" No, I have other plans, and now that we are separated I would like to see my Mum and Dad on my own, if that's ok. I am after all your daughter not your ex Son In Laws wife. Could we arrange another night for me / me and the boys to come round ? What about next Thursday..."

They are perfectly bizarre, your M&D.

Pinkchampagne Fri 17-Aug-07 10:50:45

Yes, I have lots of front door keys now, Baffy! Wouldn't put it past mum to have had more than one key cut to my house though!

My Mum did this with my first husband. he took the children to Florida (by this time I was remarried) and when he brought them back to my Mum's (I was there waiting for them) she tried to get me to get dressed up saying 'why don't you two go out for a drink...just for old times' sake?'!!!!!!! whilst winking manically. She hated him when we were married too.

Pinkchampagne Fri 17-Aug-07 10:51:58

Very bizarre, Blu!
Good to see you back btw! Did you have a good holiday?
You missed my key saga!

Dropdeadfred Fri 17-Aug-07 10:52:39

I think they are setting themselves up for disappointment in the long run. I don't know why you split in the first place but surely they do and they don't appear to be showing you much respect by assuming they can just take charge and matchmake again as if nothing happened.

MascaraOHara Fri 17-Aug-07 10:54:38

I saw the tittle and knew this would be you PC.. you're mum is behaving very strangely! If it were my mum I'd text back saying "Are you insane? no, really.."

MyTwopenceworth Fri 17-Aug-07 10:56:14

Agree to phone and ask to take your new boyfriend. Would love to hear the reply to that!

ps. no offence, but your mum's a bit odd.

BreeVanDerCampLGJ Fri 17-Aug-07 10:59:06


Her mother is not odd, she is barking.


I knew this would be yours.

Pinkchampagne Fri 17-Aug-07 11:00:05

Oh dear, am I really well known for my barking parents??!!

BreeVanDerCampLGJ Fri 17-Aug-07 11:01:09


Of all the break-ups I have seen on here, your parents seem to be the oddest, and that is being polite.

Marina Fri 17-Aug-07 11:01:22

I just had a sinking feeling this was you PC! You have some good replies here. Barking is the word for her. V glad you are not going.
The next time you are forced into his company by their untrustworthy antics, please get one of us to send you a barrage of lewd texts. Or we can all call you one at a time and arrange enjoyable-sounding girls' nights out.
Wedding ring still on, I can sort of understand and respect. Everything else
Tis lovely to see you posting wryly about this mad basket of snakes instead of letting them undermine your new life

Well, but I didn't want to offend you by saying your mother's a fruit loop!
