Not a great day for me. Mum was particularly anxious and of course I've managed to make it worse by stupidly arguing with her. After spending the entire day with me (as usual) I took my daughter to the railway station (with mum) and then dropped mum back at home with a promise to be back within an hour or so to do some gardening. After literally just a few minutes the phone rang so abandoning any attempt at getting some much needed tidying up done, I went back to a tearful mum complaining that she'd been abandoned and left on her own "for hours". I stupidly disagreed and said she'd been with me all day. Within minutes I'd apparently made it all up that she's called me or complained that she'd been left on her own! From there it went downhill with her trying to phone me whilst I was sitting in front of her (and still I had to correct her - when will I ever learn?), followed by much complaining about how difficult it is to live on your own with an accusation of stealing her underwear thrown in for good measure. Tomorrow's another day and she will have forgotten all about today whilst I'm left frazzled and doubting my own sanity. Phew!
