    Morning all.

    I slept for almost 9 hours last night and still I could have stayed in bed. If I had ironed the school clothes last night I don't think I would have got up when I did.

    This morning appears lovely at the moment. Sun is shining and a really nice morning. Start my nights again today so after giving the house a quick tidy round, and doing the grocery shopping I am going to chill out.

    Morning all up at 6 but woke around 5. Sorted OH pack up and LO was already awake so he played with his toys until I'd sorted his breakfast.

    Got the food shop to do and then need to sort all LO birthday presents out etc. he's been well and truly spoilt.

    Trying to think of a way to sort things between OH and my family. No ideas have sprung to mind yet. When he spoke to my mum on Friday he really upset her. The way he spoke f in and blinding. He told me it was my mum that starting having a go. He was calm up until mum kicked off but mum said he started up kick off as soon as he answered the phone. I've told him he needs to think about the things he is going to say before they actually come out as he's upset everyone. He needs to sort his temper out too as last night LO kept banging one of my steamer trays (he likes to empty the kitchen cupboards) twice we told him to stop. When he didn't OH kicked it then threw it across the room before slamming the door behind him. I shouted you can't be like this. Your going to end up hurting someone. LO found it funny but then came and sat cuddled next to me and didn't move all night until he fell asleep.

    Best got on with the day... Shower time

    Have a good day all x

    Maybe all of what is going on between him and your mum/sister is having an added effect on his temper. What happened the other day sounds so much like children in a playground, he said she started it, she's saying he started it. Lets be adults now please. Wish it was only that simple for you though. Maybe they all need to go to some kind of relate thing, talk it out with someone outside of the family.??? If it is going to save a lot of things then it might be worth considering.

    I know Sarah. I've told them all this. I'm the one stuck in the middle, getting upset as we are just going around in circles. I've said I'm not going to get upset anymore but when everyone is at each other's throats it's easier said than done.
    At the party Saturday night one of my dads friends came (he lives 2 doors up from me) and I told him that dad had said how can he give me away to Ant and welcome him in to the family when he is being like this. Dads friend gave me a hug and said I've known you since you were 3. If your dad can't put things aside and so this for his daughter then I would be honoured to give you away if you would let me. Thought it was really nice of him to say but it just wouldn't be the same. I want my mum, dad and sisters at the wedding more than anything. I know it sounds horrible and nasty but sometimes I wish I didn't have a sister as she is the main cause of all this and I'll never forgive her for it

    Morning ladies. Lovely morning here too but meant to turn rubbish this afternoon with more rain and potentially thunder storms forecast. Did anyone hear about the couple who both died after both being struck by a different bolt of lightning?! So scary - this is why I am terrified of lightning!!

    Got up early this morning and did my charlotte crosby dvd. Feeling knackered but good for doing it x

    That is really nice Mrs Wade and I know what you mean about it not being the same though, have you thought about writing them all a letter explaining how you feel? sometimes people don't take on how people feel when its face to face but written down it can get through more, if you were to write each of them a letter so they all have their own and hopefully they will take on board that your the middle man and the one who's hurt in all this, they need to get past the he di wrong she did wrong phase, accept there all to blame and put it behind them, not saying they need to forget but they need to forgive for your sake and LO. They are all adults at the end of the day and need to stop holding such a grudge and stop making you feel like your walking on egg shells.

    Things would be so much easier if you didn't have her but she's your sister and as much as you feel you wont forgive her now if they can be civil for your sake and stop all the agro then you will forgive her xx

    I'm forever writing to hubby and telling him how I feel if things are not going great. It certainly helps a lot. Once they see it in black and white how they are making you feel by acting like they are maybe they will see sense, I hope so for your case.

    Just took a phone call and it was someone complaining about one of our painters getting paint on his jacket. He says he's already been in contact with our local team who refuse to help him/sort it out... he was really shouting and being quite aggressive, I let him rant on for a while but in the end I just had to butt in and said I'm sorry but can I stop you there, please stop shouting at me and speaking to me aggressively and I will try to help you, otherwise I will just hang up the phone!!! Probably shouldn't have said that really but he was being so horrible and wouldn't even let me get a word in edge ways! Feeling a bit upset now but I think he felt guilty in the end.

    Hate it when people are like that. I appreciate he was annoyed and angry but no need to take it out on someone who knows nothing about the situation. I would never speak to someone like that - there is a way to be assertive without being down right rude!

    I hate the fact my phone number is on our website, it's supposed to be for general painting enquiries but I get all sorts of [email protected]!!

    I had someone phone me the other day, wished I had not picked the phone up as I thought, jeez, I don't know what to say to this, they kept on and on talking, not rudely, but needing to get something off their chest, so in the end I said well I think you need to see such and such a person. This was at like 2245!!! Why wait until then?

    Morning ladies, off sick today! Think I've got some sort of food poisoning from the takeaway we had last night :( either that or I've just got a bug!

    Had a crazy weekend! OH found a stray dog outside work yesterday morning so brought it home with him. It was really old, was covered in blood and could hardly walk. It didn't get on with our dog but we thought we would only have to wait an hour or so before a dogs home or the warden could get him, turns out no dogs homes take strays and the dog warden phone line wasn't open until 10am! Nobody ended up coming for it until 3pm so we were stuck trying to control 2 dogs all day lol! x

    I would be the worst person in the world to walk in a call centre, I hate people speaking to me like that, I take it to heart and get quite emotional over it! I remember after receiving a complaint at my old work I was actually reduced to tears as the person was so rude and horrible to me!

    The other side of it is, that when I need to phone up and complain about something, I keep calm as well. The other person hates it as used to having people ranting and raving at them.

    Both Emma's, hope you are both feeling better soon.

    As I said a few posts above, there is a way to be assertive without being rude and aggressive. You can still get your point across without shouting and effing and blinding!!
