Yesterday I had a message from one of my granddaughters who told me in no uncertain terms what she thought of me which covered nearly a whole page and without pulling any punches either. Needless to say I was extremely upset especially as she had misinterpreted what I wrote in the first place which was that I was feeling really down .. and that was because my grandson's cremation was that day! The reams of abuse went on and on about how I am a self-centered grumpy old person who never thinks about anyone but myself .. and so on and so on!
Today I find that my other granddaughter has also posted similarly and added that my near death experience should have made me think about how horrible I am and do something about it before it is too late!

This morning I have decided not to respond to the posts on Facebook but leave it for another time when hopefully things will settle a bit .. whatever I say is likely to be taken the wrong way methinks .. and the fact that I have told my family in the past that I regret the things that happened years ago is likely to fall on rather deaf ears anyway.
Went to help the preparations for the fete tomorrow but there was nothing to be done!
Had a nice chat with Joan and then a cup of tea and an egg mayonnaise sandwich and then went to the hairdresser to get my hair washed and blow dried.. and soon I will be going to bed ..that is after I have done a bit of tidying up.
I bought a new dress which turned out to be a little bit short.. bought a second one which is somewhat longer to find it's too long! [​IMG]
Looking forward to tomorrows fete and my niece coming too.
