We arrived home from holidays today. We went to visit my partners parents in Lancashire. They cooked liked fury all the time we were there but it didn't make up for their obvious contempt for me.
It seems I am to blame for the break up of my partners marriage. My partner being completely incapable of telling his bossy and sexless wife where to get off, it had to be me that ordered the 'execution'! Of course it wasn't and I sent my beloved back to his wife on three occasions and during the last attempt at reconciliation on his birthday a couple of years ago he had a nervous breakdown and left for good.
I took great pleasure in informing his unpleasant mother all about it. I even told her that if it meant that his childish grown up kids could have a relationship with their father then they can happily blame me because I don't think I am missing much not having met them yet!
So yes I am turning over a new leaf. I am stopping letting the folk around me upset me, I am growing the Rhino skin that I was advised to grow while at the BBC.
