    Family meal planned without inviting my sister from London. Just makes me feel in an awkward position because I have to listen to everyone talking about each other.

    Oh and my uncle and aunty are moving to Cheshire so mum and dad have set a date to go see them. They've still not been to visit my sister and she lives closer to them than my uncle will do!

But she doesn't understand what I mean and is really offended. :/
    Tell her this and she won't be mad any more. She sounds very sensitive and quick to stress, but tbf her baby is at uni and that's scary for her.

    Thanks. I have told her that, and she can be at times. I've apologised and I think she feels a bit better about it now.

    I had EXACTLY the same thing happen over the weekend Katie. Ordered stuff that was due for sometime this week but had an email saying they were going to deliver it last Friday. Then, had an email saying they'd tried to deliver it but couldn't access the building. This was at 5.30pm...my shop is open until 7 in a 24hr shopping centre. It eventually turned up on Monday, so your stuff will probably turn up on its original date too!
    Stabbings I still have
    Right ear
    : 2 x helix, conch & rook
    Left ear: helix, conch & tragus
    Tongue web, nostril, septum
    Triangle, VCH & 2 x outers

    Ugh. My mom being up my a$$ about my blue hair again. I've been looking at jobs for when I graduate and yes its time to start applying and yeah, I'm probably going to have to change my hair soon but NOT RIGHT THIS SECOND and she doesn't have to remind me about it constantly. Also the interrogation: "what does having blue hair mean to you, and how can you fulfill that need in other ways?"

    I honestly think it's pretty awesome of her to even ask that, I don't think that would occur to my mum in a million years.

    Last night, I confronted someone about some things he's said to me. This guy knows about my issues and insecurities, yet still made "jokes" that would obviously be hurtful and offensive to someone like me and made out like it was "banter". He also took the p*ss out of something that happened to me, even though he saw me cry my eyes out over it the previous week and knew I was very ashamed and upset about it. He apologised but said the reason for him being like this is that making jokes is apparently the only way he knows to deal with things and the was the only way he could cope with some bad stuff that happened in his past. But I don't see how that's a good excuse for what he said to me - these are my issues and my past. He does not have to deal with them. I'm the one who has to deal with them every day. And I never even brought things like that up with him - he just started being horrible and making "jokes". Also, I'm kind of annoyed because I've just looked at my messages this morning and last night I kind of sent him a reply accepting his apology.

    Why are so many of my in-laws incapable of doing really basic tasks for themselves? Slightest hint of manual work and it's automatically Michael's job. Gender stereotyping, much?
