to get to where my family lives we have to undergo the following 'lord of the rings' journey
We can only take a night flight and it takes off at 7pm. We at 7am. We then walk to the train station (30 mins) and then we take a two hour train journey. Once we arrive at the train station we only have another one hour in the car to reach the family homestead.
At this point I am sleep deprived, feel like crap and cold, oh so cold. We sit in my brothers house and it is dark and raining. One lamp is on. gloooooomy. But what is more amazing is that the heating is not on. I am in a down coat but shivering. My nephew is sitting next to me chattering away as he plays on my Iphone and the SIL walks in. She says hi to her son and then makes herself a cup of tea and a sandwich.
She sits down and answers a few questions from my mum (who is babysitting) and then demands that her son stops paying the game and sits by her.
At this point, she hasn't said hello or offered us any food or drink. We have been up for about 20 hours.
I smile at my nephew who is sitting on her lap but trying to get my attention
"Aren't you lovely, aren't you handsome" she says to her son "you got that from my side of the family"
Oh yes. For the rest of our trip we saw her only once. We paid for diner so naturally she attended. The whole point of the visit was to go to Bonfire Night but she decided not to come!!!
Oh its all fun and games with family, right.
Had my second L.upron shot today. Haven't had any blood work but I guess that is just how they rock at the Simpson/s clinic!! The only time they are proactive is when you don't pay!!
