My Mum's lunch club was due to start on Wednesday after the August break, and I was going to go in and give her house its first proper clean in weeks (my SIL won't do much cleaning when Mum is there as she is frightened of her verbally abusive manner). We waited till 12.30am, still no community bus, so called and was told bus was cancelled till Monday. I then called lunch club and was told same thing as there was problem with the hall. When I asked why I was not told they said they had called my Mum the day before. I have repeatedly told them not to call her, only call me, they have my instructions in writing. Their reply was 'we had lots of people to call'! So my hubbie went food shopping for her while I tried to explain that she was not going to lunch club. I managed to do a bit of cleaning in between her rants and repetitive questioning. Wednesday was also my birthday. I did not mention this to Mum as she has not remembered my birthday since I was 12- I am 57! (She has NEVER forgotten my brother's birthday in November!) We managed to get away at nearly 3pm as I was due to meet granddaughters from school, and then had little birthday tea party which was good.
