We had a family Christmas planned for the 23rd. We had the time, place, food and gifts all planned. She changed her mind and didn't tell me and then went and replanned it and rented a hall that can't be cancelled. I try so hard not to get angry, but she really makes it hard.
I'm sorry to hear about your mum.

My dad developed dementia early - around 52 years of age - and it's always upset me that my children will never have the chance to know the wonderful father he was to me and who he could have been to them but for this horrible illness. He was diagnosed while I was still in hospital after my son was born.

Please keep in mind that it is not your mum's fault for what she is doing, it's the disease.

Take care.

Thanks all for all the replies. Lots of ideas.
This quote above, I love. I forgot about that. I have absolutely no idea what the current craze is and so happy I'm not running around looking for it.
Was so grateful that none of my kids liked the Cabbage Patch dolls. I did have to hunt and did know all of the characters to HeMan though. I bought the grayskull castle and all that good stuff.
