I'm going to opt for saying nothing. You leave me no choice. sigh
Because you're not misbehaving harb....
maybe your actions say it nicer than your words innocent

Or so the saying goes dunno
laugh
That's funny! I have a similar situation. My son, his girlfriend and my 2 granddaughters are going away at the end of the month. It's the little one's birthday. She'll be 3. Normally, we would rent out a playland and have a big ol' party for both sides of the family. With this Covid thing we can't do that so they asked her what she wanted to do. She wants to go to a hotel with a pool. They're going to go to a water park out of state and spend 3 days there. The older granddaughter said "Grandma, I wish you would come with us." I simply told her that sometimes it's nice to spend time with just your mom and dad and sister. She responded with "yeah sometimes it's nice to get away from you and you can get away from us." We all got a chuckle out of that and hell I was just trying to be nice about it. laugh
This is so nice, that I nicely sent your family a link. laugh
laugh laugh Now Kp, you are an honest woman talking handshake

The way I see it, them going away leaves us alone to recharge our batteries conversing
and to blast up our songs that DON'T apply to us dancing





Ps, hope your grandaughter & family have a lovely time away cake party

And you too of course very happy wine
laugh laugh Jim, how nice of you ........ NOT shock doh lol
I am kinda use to being all by myself.

Eh steady on now String, It's just a little niceness I'm looking for ....
and not a proposal of any other sort roll eyes lol giggle





Just like you string, I too will get used to it as well wine
I have had more practice on lonely nights.

this IS a nice blog.grin
Hey, CW, you hottie svelte blondie Irish lassie. Yep, been there more than once. My far from sobriety alcoholic brother is the worst. Comes and acts like a total dry drunk, pissing every one off with his unresolved anger, and pissing up his kilt in the process. Even the nice twins can't stand his crap.
At home he swills up on the cheapest Yankie dishwater beer. A case daily. But insists that I keep the fridge stocked with my usual foreign good stuff.
The Swiss, who aren't among my favorites, do have a nice saying for visits, especially from relatives.
As with even the best cheese---after a few days, it begins to smell. Bad, VERY bad.
Nice grounded take on it all, Girl.
My tuppence. No more.
Thanks String .... one of my favourite songs applause

Lonely nights aren't always wasted when we can put our practice into our dreams wink



G'evening Vier, not nice of you to make me blush blushing

But since Its your good-self, this time I'll allow it wink bouquet

I wonder are we somehow related, sounds like one of my own family members you've got there....
but unfortunately most families have one sad
I have two, my brother sounds exactly like yours ... when my lived here with me, like yours, mine also hated seeing him coming, but unlike you, I would never let him stay here overnight... so either you are nicer than me, or your brother is nicer than mine conversing

Thank you kindly for your twopence worth wave
Thank you String handshake

But its people like you that helps keep nice things nice hug



Oh no, my daughters returned home to Covid's black spot in Ireland ...sad

Anything good never stays nice for too long blues moping
Yep, CW. The bottle. Ain't it awful? But some do get better. Lots of God's special grace.
@ Itchy, Girl - wave .... I know all too well that feeling when a family member leaves after a stay:

As you know I spent a week at my sister's place recently and of course she cooked for me, did my laundry etc. On the evening before I left I handed to her and her husband a $300,00 voucher to her favorite restaurant in appreciation. A little gesture like this goes a long way to reduce the "Glad he's gone" feeling, or at the very least leaves them feeling a little guilty at even thinking like that.... grin

There's no such thing as a free lunch but many people tend to take advantage of their own family.

Take care little 2" taller one and stay safe...

grin hug teddybear bouquet
Top of the morning to you Vier tip hat
it is awful and don't both of us know it, along with so many more.

As gracious as our God is, recovery is down to the strength and want of the individual and not to forget either, a transplant.
A nice man like you Hans, I'm sure no-one is ever happy to see leaving hug
but after giving them that much money, I might understand why they might be lol.
Have to say I've never heard of leaving guests giving money as a thank you before, I would be more inclined to give a voucher for a dinner for two, or maybe a thank you gift ....

That being said, different strokes for different folk wine

Its a beautiful Sunday here ....

Each and all, enjoy yours teddybear

I'm off and out to enjoy mine gotta go cartwheel joy

cool



@ Itchy, Girl - wave .... Maybe if you have time you could re-read my comment again Girl, see if you can find the 'voucher' word........ professor

Bless you for your niceness innocent bouquet

I prefer they visit me , rather that I go over .
I don't like sleeping out .
Today one of my sisters and her two daughters together with the grandchildren came , it was fun they left around 7 pm .
This is the part I hate . So when are you coming over ? Soon sister , lol
I'm very much like you Ann in that department, but more so with the visiting than staying over ...
Once I'm there, it's alright, but getting there .... is another thing.

But since I've being reminded enough ....
" if I care enough I would put the effort in" blah blah

The things we must do to show someone we care blah lol
wave



Rightyo Hans wave
So I've covered what is nice, time to cover now what is NOT ....
it may not be nice, but I have stayed silent, but for certain reasons I no longer can.

Okay goodnight I'm working in the morning so I'll not be able to chat till evening, if a tall....
but still before the alarm goes off, the phone rings.
(Txt a) I'm running late so I'll ring you later .... still the phone rings again, or with a load of beeps with so many incoming txts.

Attending/looking after either my father or sister, same thing, no consideration for me, my family space and needs, because I was her friend... I was to respect her more/ first.
Correct, taking calls did not always suit me, am I the only one guilty of not picking up a phone when it didn't?
maybe just maybe it didn't suit others that I answered.

Once at an unsuitable time when I did pick up ( mainly because the ringing was driving me up the wall) I asked what ever this is, leave it till later ( the reply) a big loud NO, I'm in a bad mood I need to give out so you're going to shut up and listen.... because I was gobsmacked I did.
No-one will believe that, hell I still don't ... but its TRUE.
Ever since then I've been trying to pull away from you, unfortunately you gave me no reason, not to.

I am sorry you are alone but it it not right, nor fair, you hold me responsible for your loneliness.
I am sorry you took offence when I advised you as a friend, but aren't friends meant to be honest with each other. I am sorry to hear of your mothers passing but we had our words before she had... if you don't recall, then I'm sorry but I'm not about to refresh your memory anymore than I was going to allow you take advantage of my sympathy ... what I am most sorry about is this comment, but you have no idea with what I've being putting up with since your lies of me and my so called treatment to/of you ... absolutely NO idea, like others don't know what I've being putting up with, since I befriended you.

I have not mentioned your name, told lies nor have I insulted so I don't expect to be reported, suspended or removed again by you, having said that ... who says lightning doesn't strike twice.
however, be that the case ... then so be it.

Note to-self, never befriend another woman here again.

Goodnight & God bless all teddybear
'Others don't know what I have been putting up with since I befriended you'

How long can you get , just when you thought it was safe to write something very nasty on your 'Nice Blog' which has said ' if you have nothing to say say nothing ' but we know you blow hot and cold.

I found this extremely Itchy the Victim. Those phones ringing, as in I was the one /.
This is not true. I am not on the Blogs anymore but you are not going to get away with lying, or with trying to say you were a nice person in this scenario.
You were not.

Truth ~ I was a little anxious when you befriended me, as you had a sort of tough persona on line.
You told me some time ago that I quote 'You are the only one that I trust on the blogs'

I had very often told you that you should let the others look after your father, and I wa[mes there to listen to your problems with your sister [you mentioned it first here on the blogs ] and also I was there to advise when you were at your wits end. I gave you advise about both,

I never was one for phoning often. I realised that you are a busy woman. I was delighted when you got your job back and WE spoke a lot about that. You trusted me and visa versa.

To say that I was lonely and that that was not your fault. Who says I am lonely, ?? You have completely thrown the truth on its arse and re written the script to make yourself out the good girl.
Don't deceive yourself Itchy. The truth stands like this ~ We became friends.

I was reticent about phoning you as I knew you had grandkids and were a busy woman, also your x husband there etc., I let you phone me. When you phoned me, Did it ever dawn on your that it was late at night, that I might be going somewhere ? not once did you say is this convenient ? I always asked you can you take this call...... There were times when you incessantly called me when you had problems on the blogs. Then you would ignore my calls. I took this for a while and realised that you blew hot and cold. Just like I notice you have been doing with people [men on here ] that you did not want anything to do with...... they were eerie, and now you are all over one in particular like a rash. you are not very wise in the decisions you make or else you were lying about the poor man and his stalking.

Now missy,, To say to one and all here that I was lonely What a horrible thing to say.... in other words all I had was a woman like you who were kind enough to take calls from somebody like me ? boring, let me tell you Itchy I have friends, intelligent, articulate, fun friends and I have had some for over 40 years.
How dare you tell lies knowing I was not here to defend myself

I have not been on the blogs but tonight I was up having a chat with a very good friend of mine Pam about her Birthday party and got an invite to stay in her house. you told me you missed the blogs an needed them..... I never needed them. I have a life outside them. I don't think you have an y real women friends.
Again don't deceive yourself. your treatment of me when my mother died was horrific. There is also an insinuation that I had you banned ????? I did not have you banned. I have had nobody Banned you often got yourself banned. In jail whatever. I was never banned or in jail.

Now back to you knew ~ you phoned me when it suited you and then ignored me when it did nt. I dont like that in a friend. i helped you with all problems you phoned me with, you ar simply put a narcissist. Its all about men and I could go further her but won;t,
just saying I am far from lonely. I don't need to flirt with men who I have told another woman I cant stand, and then one who is dangerous and eerie and stalked you from afar..... and then am so needy for attention that I went back to them.... this is pathetic.

I have both platonic men friends going back years, and some really good girl friends. Are you saying it is because I live alone
Oops I disallowed comments without seeing/checking comments.

I shall go now and read what is written.
Celtic if you disallow comments and ever write the lies and untruths and try to come on all over as nic eon your nice blogs. you are , were never a friend , I guess I always knew it but found you nice and sometimes even funny if sometimes you took things up all wrong.
Again, I did not chase you. Sorry you are not that amusing and usually in one Drama or another and like to be centre stage on the blogs.

you tried to get me to stay at one point. Again I did not phone your house alot. your smartphone alot. you phoned me often late, sometimes with drink taken and wanted to talk to me, to use my brains, my take on b't log matters. I was there to fight your battles.

You let me down badly and you know nothing of real friendship. If only those men knew what you said about them. I won't be looking in to the blogs, unlike you, I have alife, I am involved now in many things.

I would like to take issue with the fact that like another thug on here you told me in an email that you felt sorry for me as I needed to go for help t hat i had serious mental health problems.

well as I said before I don't drink, I don't write dramatic blogs for notice. I dont befriend and use decent people and then drop when it suits and defame and lie when the person is not here to defend themselves you know about my life , you know about my family situation and knowing all this and writing what you just did, shows you are just not even worth the dignity of a reply.............. I was just shocked.

Anger, you are full of it. your life is a car crash in many ways and you blame everyone else.... think about that one. Don't write lies about me again.

I was a darned good friend to you but you have become like others that stayed too long here and became hard and bitter. If you lie down with dogs you attract fleas. Dont say I did not warn you. You have tried to demean me and If you lived in Dublin and were my neighbour I would not choose you to become friends with, it is only though CS that we had anything in common. So get a grip girl.
