Today, we were watching Lorraine and one of the Loose Women was on ( I forget her name) talking about divorce and not wasting your life.
I cant remember exactly what I said - something like 'I can't bear this whining woman, turn it off if you're not watching'?
To which Grampy replied ' You've gotten bitter since you turned 60 , you can have your point of view but I don't have to hear it !'
When I told him I was hurt ( I'm almost positive I'm not bitter about anything or anyone and certainly not since my birthday ) he laughed. Waited a touch too long and then said 'sorry'.
Not on his knees !
Not sorry at all .....
I have decided after 40 years if a) he has not learned to tune me out
b) I cant say what I like without fear of favour to him
he has to go !
Choices available to me :
Under the patio
Under the car
A 'trip' down the stairs
Drain cleaner in his dinner.
Any advice gratefully received !!

'The one' - "we kissed and wow!"
