Should have expected this!!!!

Not been a bad month….the kitchen refurb seemed to be going well….the weather has been fabulous, especially the past week. I should have realised that things would bite me in the bum.
Saturday Phil hurt his back, which put an end to the new flooring being laid. Then Sunday I got a phone call from my mother informing me that my father, who has been loosing his marbles for the past decade (he is 87 after all!) had got her so worked up, that she wanted me to drive over to London to stay with her & provide a bit of respite. The fact that I had more than enough on my plate was of no consequence to her! I am now being cast as the “bad daughter”. Why the fuck my sister couldn’t step in is beyond me!! Shit, she lives closer, has retired, has always been the one my dear mother holds up as a paragon of virtue (if only she knew what i know…), why must I be the one to drop everything?
Rant over! I’ll be away from my pc for a few days next week, I have been made to feel guilty….
