Don't go. Why does she nag you to go only to disappear out for the evening?

Tell her you'll come and visit when her social diary isn't so full.

nutcracker Thu 24-Mar-05 16:39:34

If thats right then i wouldn't go, whats the point if she isn't gonna be there. I'd tell her too.

coppertop Thu 24-Mar-05 16:39:43

What's the point in going if she's not going to even be there? I wouldn't want to go either tbh.

Keane Thu 24-Mar-05 16:41:36

so its not me then, even though evryone else said no its not. i just feel guilty for some reason

Keane Thu 24-Mar-05 16:42:30

she never ever has the kids either i thought she could at least babysit for a night?

nutcracker Thu 24-Mar-05 16:44:45

Nothing to feel guilty about imo. If anyone should feel guilty it's your mom i think.

tamum Thu 24-Mar-05 16:45:43

No, you're being completely reasonable and anyway you could never be a bitch. Mwah.

Bugsy2 Thu 24-Mar-05 16:48:04

ooooooooohhhhhh Keane, that is so annoying. Tell her that you'll go & visit her on another occasion when she is around a bit more!!!!

marthamoo Thu 24-Mar-05 16:48:59

I thought you'd sounded fed up this week. I wouldn't go and I'd tell her why (not nastily - I would just say "there doesn't seem much point in coming if you're going to be out both nights - we thought we'd come another time instead, when you're less busy.")

Keane Thu 24-Mar-05 16:55:01

what shall i say though, she will do the whole drama queen routine

Keane Thu 24-Mar-05 16:56:59

she is uch a control freak

i am a big girl now, why cant i just be more assertive
i feel downtrodden

tamum Thu 24-Mar-05 16:57:10

Just say that you'd like to reschedule for a time when you'll have a chance to spend more time with her and she's not so busy?

Bugsy2 Thu 24-Mar-05 16:59:02

Play up the "we're really keen to see you, but it just seems a bit daft to come up when you are so busy".

Keane Thu 24-Mar-05 17:07:58

and now my gran has just rang and said, i'l see you tommorrow

Keane Thu 24-Mar-05 18:38:56

I still havent told her. Why do i feel so bad???

I bet you'll feel better once you've said it though, won't you? Could you come up with maybe two alternative weekends now, and give her the dates to choose from?

Keane Thu 24-Mar-05 18:48:50

just spoke to my stepdad, he said not to worry.........I am not scread of my stepdad though!

Keane Thu 24-Mar-05 18:49:24

scared i meant, lol
mum is still at work, i know she will go mad

HUNKERMUNKER Thu 24-Mar-05 18:55:37

Ask her how she'd feel if she came to see you and you disappeared out for both nights. Then say that you will come, but only if she comes and babysits every night she's there.

I don't think you're being unreasonable at all xxxxxx

HUNKERMUNKER Thu 24-Mar-05 18:56:08

I mean if she comes to stay with you another time and babysits for you.
