I've just bought the first house with my fella and moved in and shes shown hardly any interest.. its a new build so we've been watching it being built for months and shes never asked about it, shes sent us a new home card but thats all - no phonecalls, texts or anything to ask how its going In an e-mail about something unrelated she put that hopefully she'll have time to come and have a look when shes home next month for a family party - she lives in London and i'm in the North West, when she comes she'll be staying at my parents house 5 mins away for the wknd ... I know shes busy with work but shes my sister !
Perhaps she isn't that interested? It's only a house. Maybe she's interested in other aspects of your life? Children? Relationship? Perhaps she doesn't see that it's really that big a deal to you and just sees it as mundane, moving house stuff. If you're bothered about it, then talk to her. But your expectations are your responsibility.
If she's never interested in anything that's in your life, then that's different. But perhaps, like I say, she's just not thinking that shifting into a new house is really a massive thing in life.
No what you really mean is you wanted your sis to be with envy and are miffed that she is not. I couldnt have cared less when my sis and her dp got their house(and then spent a year and all their money doing it up)-I find houses really really boring to talk about.Sorry.
You bought off plan? So she was supposed to call and ask how the builders were doing I think a new home card and a call about visiting when she's up is fine. My DH's family have never sent a card, and mine send cards but wouldn't be on the phone asking if the roof was on yet or if they'd finished installing the bathroom.
Sorry, I think you're being PNH (Precious New House)
