Last night the thing I have been dreading happened, DH had gone to bed quite early and reappeared while I was just shutting down the computer. 'Oh, hello' he said 'you are still here?' and went on to ask how I was getting home. He explained that he was no longer allowed to drive and then invited me to stay the night. He was wearing the PJ's I gave him for Christmas and broke off to pose, show them off. Then the bombshell 'Do you like my new pyjamas, MAW?'
He went on to say I could have the 'spare' bed (ie mine) next to him in the front bedroom and pointed out where the bathroom and toilet were, and where I could make a cup of tea. Then off he went to bed again saying 'Don't wake me when you come to bed, Maw, see you in the morning'.
Now MIL, who has been dead for over 20 years, hated me from the start, she described me as a Golddigger, who had stolen her only Son. I knew that the time would come when DH would no longer recognise me, but to be taken for his Mother is too much.
This morning he was his usual confused self but did know who I am and where we live - probably been overtired last night and out of the normal routine with all the Christmas comings and goings. This morning I can rationalise but I am still so upset. Not really looking for sympathy just thought if I wrote it down, it would get it off my chest, then chin up - Onwards and Downwards.
Thanx for Listening.
