Hello all I'm going to drop my mum off with my brother today. At last he is having some involvement! Mum has been here for 7 days and besides a rather big row yesterday (the usual 'there's nothing wrong with me' arguement), she has been fine. Last night whilst briefing brother on the phone, he stopped me to: tell me that a film was about to start on TV that he wanted to watch; that he was watching footie in the pub on Saturday afternoon so unless mum goes with him she will have to stay with his girlfriend. Girlfriend shouts up that she doesn't want mum with her! They are going out on NY Eve and will be taking mum. Although she's a sociable person, I'm worried that it will be too noisy, too busy. I'm sitting here now feeling very upset and guilty. I feel like I'm dumping her (albeit for 3 days) on him when clearly he's not prepared to sacrifice anything. I've written notes for him about her tablets, what they are for and about her routines. That he will need to reiterate all the time where things are (she's not been to their house much - another reason for me feeling bad). I guess before Xmas it seemed like a good idea. Brother seemed amenable and at the time said he had 'no plans'. I also thought it would give me a break. Now I'm not so sure. Mum changes her mind between wanting to go and not. We will be leaving in a few hours and I feel b**** awful!
