    Morning all had a rubbish nights sleep. We had an Indian last night and my stomach has been going round in circles ever since and still doesn't feel great.

    Was up at 5.30 as OH got an early start.

    Need to do the food shop and have a clean up. Hopefully get on a walk with LO as didn't get chance yesterday

    Morning. Only got 4 hours sleep and that was restless anyway. Feel as if I've just gone to bed not just woken up.

    I was still crying when OH came to bed so had a massive chat about his parents. He now understands why I don't want him to speak to them again because if they do then call will be because he has forced them to not because they want contact. He knows I don't trust them and can never forgive them for this or believe a word that they say. He knows how much it has hurt me and knows that the longer they leave it the worse it is getting. Told him that if it was his aunt or his grandparents I would cut all ties and ask him to do the same but as its his parents I find it hard doing that let along asking him to. He us just really angry about the entire situation. Not at me but at them. He is starting to believe that they will never call me. Was such a massive conversation and both were so emotional at the end it took forever to get to sleep. Unfortunately it didn't resolve anything. We are still in limbo and completely unable to move on. They won't contact us do that we can move on with them. But we both feel unable to cut all ties with them to move on without them. We're just stuck. It's horrible to think that they are still hurting us over it and they have no idea. They don't know what they have done to our lives if our relationship. I wish there was a window for them to look through last night to see it but I don't think it would make a difference. I am honestly starting to think that they are horrible people because I just don't understand how nice people could think it's ok to do what they have done. :(

    Anyway. Shower and to work. Hope the steam gets rid if some of the puffyness and soreness in my eyes x

    Other than seeing his mom st his comendation, No nothing else has happened. I don't like telling him how I feel with the situation. It's his parents and I have lost all hope. I know he still has some which is right and you expect that from him but I feel so guilty so hide it from him and bottle it up. We were talking about the wedding and how he expects them to make the cake and everything and I just started crying. I am struggling to come to terms with them coming to the wedding let alone having parents of the groom status and making our cake. I don't understand how after what they said and expect of me they can have anything to do with the most important day of my life. I just started crying and we had a big argument about it again.

    Morning ladies, had a pants night sleep the last 2 nights so feeling a bit worse for wear this morning! OH has been struggling to sleep recently too which is not like him at all, he's normally out like a light!

    Got my colleague coming from London today, off to the train station shortly to go and collect her.

    Morning ladies

    We all seem to have suffered from lack of sleep, I have been yo most of the night feeling sick along side the cold, feel awful and just thankful that I'm off work until Wednesday! I hope it gives me enough time to feel better as I really feel awful

    So today now consists of me lying on the sofa and keeping on top of medicine

    Morning all. I'm SO snotty, this weekend has been miserable. Was meant to be going shopping yesterday and treating ourselves to a wagas but I had no energy.
    Had to get up early to take car to garage for airbag recall, now at my desk trying to work but just want to lay down in the dark. ARGH.

    That's how my throat felt the other morning as well. Was horrid.

    Last night hubby was saying about having to go to work during the day and plaster all day, then finish that one and head straight off and do another job the same, I said well that's your choice, you chose to do that. So I said to the children, when they come in today. I shall have got all the jobs in the house done for them, dinner will be ready for when they want it, then I shall go off and do the job I get paid for seeing as I don't get paid for the jobs I do in the house, hubby shut up then. Also what annoyed me yesterday was that my daughter put a plate on the table, he said there is a bowl full of water there you could wash it up, so I said hmmm, when you put the pots and pans away, there is a cupboard as well but you still put them on the table. He never heard me. Guess what he done today? Cleared part the draining board, pots and pans on the table! Cupboard right next to it.

    There are a fair few about but there are hundreds are people applying for them......

    I never seem to get an interview so im assuming its perhaps my cover letter or CV though i had that done by a career woman a while ago.....

    I hate the fact that most places are going through agencies.... Its hard to register with them as it mweans getting out of work and i just cant do that.
