It's OK I've had a kiss and a cuddle because, of course, I was right

They're kids - that's what they're for, even at 25.

If they can't stand a round in a bar
then they can go ****ing annoy some else
until they're old enough.

Sometimes what we think is important, may not hold the same degree of importance to our *kids*.

Re: Why Are Kids So Unreliable . . . .

taking my 2 eldest daughters bowling next weekend. They have been nagging me for weeks. So i finally give in and book 2 games, and now they say they dont want to go. I think they do, but i may not let them and go with some mates instead to teach them a lesson they probably wont learn. I hate all this "asserting your independence" crap.

S'alright I have calmed (Mellowed?) down a little now.

Been shopping at Waitrose and bought a nice bottle of The McAllen (which slid down very nicely at £30 thank you!), and on reflection it was just that it was the final straw that broke the Camel's back.

So the story is regarding my "little" Godson.

OK so he is 24yo and not so little physically but in many ways . . . . . . .

I have planned a week in Scotland for us in September taking in The MacAllan Distillery as well as Knockando, 18 holes at Archiestown golf course and four nights at a nice hotel.

Now both of us have been negglecting our golf skills for too long and we decided to play nine holes every week and started in April. He was busy the second week and had not made contact since.

"OK ya little bugler" thinks I, I shall outlast you!

Well he must want to borrow some money 'cos on Friday I get an E-M at work from him saying something about when the money is due for the holiday and why are you blanking me or why dont you speak to me.

I then get a call from him Friday evening and he says he needs to see me and can we play golf the weekend and watch the Canadian GP and eat at my place and can he sleep over etc. etc.!

So I arrange all that and bugler me if he dosn't call it off this morning saying he is going fishing.

I am getting annoyed again just typing this so I am going to stop and finish that McAllen.

AND there are Spitfire engine noises coming from around Northolt aerodrome so I am off!

P

THE ROXAS THAT I KNEW IS LONG GONE

Re: Why Are Kids So Unreliable . . . .

BTW

Just typical.

I got to Northolt just after the bugler had landed!

I hope Lewis has a better weekend than mine!

If it's any consolation they sort of change and become a little more like us at around about 28.

NO! I was born a fully mature adult! I was never young. I never did anything like this. I am a warm and wonderful person.

What was that Ray? . . . . . . ."And WHO (and where) he is?" Who else might he be?

I'd sure miss my 22 year old. I often bite my tongue at what she does but I love her and leave her to become an adult.
It's not easy being a parent.

Re: Why Are Kids So Unreliable . . . .

You know what,stick your damn proud in your pocket.Whatever happened between you and your son,get over it.Life is too short for all that bull.My younger brother killed himself a couple of years ago and blamed his action on me.I have not gotten over it or slept longer than 3 hours a night.Make peace....
