As I write this I am struggling emotionally.
It has been a busy week at - nothing new there then - and I have finished now for 10 days off. Not only did I get done but I finished with a flourish and left feeling proud of what I had got through.
This is not the source of my stress.
DH's ex is the stress factor.
A week ago it was announced that she was sending step son to stay with us! Agreed Sunday to Friday and because she will still not allow him to travel on the train (he's only 17!) we would meet half way - about a 2 hr drive up and then down again. Then she went silent and I knew what was coming. Arrangements had been made for our week off including a lovely dinner out tomorrow night for the two of us. Menu planned. Food order placed for delivery tomorrow. Then, this afternoon, oh, it'll have to be tomorrow as she has something she wants to do on Sunday now!
So, dinner out cancelled. Food order needs changing, instead of doing his rooms tomorrow I now need to do them tonight. Tomorrow was supposed to be a relaxing first day off and now I want to bury myself in the bottom of a bottle of vodka!
Sorry to bleat on. I've worked really hard for 3 weeks so that I could enjoy my break and now it is being dictated by another. It really ticks me off.
