..............nursing my pride.....:frown:

..............11 th day in a row I've asked the creature if I can see the grandchildren.....

...............offered to go there......them here....

................half way......

.................id pay for a zoo visit.....

..................even pick them up as I've swapped my car to accomodate them.....:frown:

..................but the creature says .......no.....!

..................and I've been warned not to speak to my son and complain...!:shocked:

..................or I will see them even less.....

...................I have a retirement plan in place......thought in about 3 to 5 years time....

..................might be sooner rather than later TBH.....

 

Oh Tink. That's rubbish. :-( My in-laws were the opposite to you, couldn't be bothered with our kids, especially when the favourite kids had (obviously) the favourite grandkids. They constantly wanted us to visit them (3 hours away) and would moan if we didn't visit every month even though we were skint!

I'd love you as my mother in law. So many tales to tell and always making an real effort to see the grandkids. One day the creature will realise what she's doing to her kids. Xx


Trying to get to Aus since 2008. Finally the end is in sight and we are starting to really plan.

That's absolutely disgusting behaviour from The Creature. And to warn you not to speak to your own son otherwise you'll see your grandchildren even less, well that's just lower than low.

I really feel for you @Tink......big hugs xxx

Oh Tink, big :hug: she sounds terribly insecure and manipulative. They don't get away with it forever, I do believe in Karma. My Nan had a similar situation with my Uncle (her son) and his wife. My Nan never got to see my cousins growing up because of my Aunt. Well my Aunt and Uncle split up a few years ago and the on days my cousins stayed with my Uncle they started to spend time with my Nan. Quickly they have realised all of the lies they have been fed and have since moved in with my Uncle and cut my Aunt off as they realise how awful she has been (it runs deeper than just my Nan). Whilst my Nan is sad she missed out on the "baby years" she is now loving spending time with my cousins and they are building lots of happy memories together.

 

Obviously you never wish divorce on people or anything like that, but your grandchildren will start to make their own choices as they get older and I truly believe they will know and see what a wonderful person you are and will naturally be drawn to spend time with you. And as a bonus your grandchildren choosing to spend time with you will drive your DIL crazy, as at it sounds like it is all about control for her.

Sitting around the pool in Singapore halfway home to Adelaide now

had a brilliant fight with Singapore airlines hubby had four seats I had three so we were able to lay down and sleep which was an absolute bonus

The flight was only half full or half empty as the case may be and the check in assistant at Heathrow very accomadating when I said the hubby struggles - she sat us apart with no one sitting next to us !

Slept well overnight woke at 9am thinking oh sugar whe have missed breakfast - we hadn't but must have sleep so sound I did not know where I was lol

Omg how can someone be so cruel! Is she scared her children would have such a good time with you....and would want to see you lots...she sounds as if she has a problem...I would mention it to your son..what can she do she can't stop him coming round to see you with the children! Sounds like emotional blackmail to me....hope things improve and you can see your G/children soon...do they have grandparents rights in Australia like they do in the UK?....

Not sure how many children you have Tink? I have 3 and the other 2 are very aware of the hurt caused by our treatment by no1 DIL, consequently they would neither let that situation happen by their partners, they have both chosen "wisely"!!!

Luckily we get on really well with both, and I genuinely love my other DIL, just so sad I can't feel that for no 1.

Sadly neither of our other 2 have children so we joke and say we have a grand cat and a grand dog here, but on a serious note we have lost out on contact with our 2 UK grandchildren, however now they are 6 & 8 they want to spend more time with us when we visit UK, so life might get better for you Tink when yours can have more imput

 

I take comfort in my cousin's grandchildren and friends of my 2 children here who have children that I am allowed to be part of their lives, love them all dearly and they appear to tolerate me!
