Can’t blog. STOP. Away. STOP. Would Blog. STOP. Too Dangerous. STOP. With family. STOP. Need I say more?!!!!

For those in the know or who’d like to make a good stab at the whole situation it’s a long running drama now in its 12th year involving the lives and loves of two families his and hers. And every time I blog about it I get metaphorically slapped or really shouted at so I don’t do it even though I am itching to splurge every gory detail. But hey that’s families for you! You get the highs and the lows.

Will take Bach’s Rescue Remedy and remember my mother’s mantra: The best thing to take on a trip is an open mind.

Oh, crikey. Am the Expert in Family Relationships. Really. And how I feel for you. Will send up a few to wish you well, so that hopefully you return with all your limbs and sense of humour intact. But PLEASE do a little tiny smidgeon of a post about it??! xxxx

No idea what you're on about...... all perfectly happy families here..... cough, splutter!

Famous, deep and meaningful quote!! ..

If it were true, there'd surely be no blogging, email, letters, texting, tweets, media, TV, radio... need I go on?

Rob-bear said...

Oh, yes. Well. Um.

I like your mother's bit about taking an open mind. As long as your mind isn't so open that your brain falls out.

If you need a large Bear to step into the situation, just ask.

Hope you're "Bearing up" on your journey.

Von said...

Hope you eat the bear before it eats you (did I get that Americanism right?)
I take it Rescue Remedy is in your kit along with the rest of the Bach Flower remedies?
Perhaps a large rubber mallet for emergences and a tiny notebook so you can sneek away and whisper to us all about how you're doing?
The very best of luck and perseverence,hope you'll be back soon.If not before.

Bluestocking Mum said...

Ahhh, I know this well.

And I also have every Bach remedy imaginable in the cupboard - one for every such occasion.

What is it they say - you can choose your friends but you can't choose your family.

Leave it with our imaginations...

Posie said...

Pam said...

Must admit, times like those I keep my mouth closed - around the brandy bottle!
