Snippet from London

Carnaby Street Liberty Entrance Thread Rainbow in Liberty

My visit to the UK has not gone entirely as planned, completely down to the awful behaviour of my soon-to-be-but-not-soon-enough-ex-brother-in-law. I did spend a week supporting my sister and niece who have been horribly treated by him and I did then go to my Mum's and spend a few days there. That included *a lot* of cat stroking and the realisation that my Mum's cat has a really small head, which was odd. I also saw my cousin there and that was all lovely despite my Mum having broken her ankle.

I met Pooch back at my sister's on Thursday and we headed to London on Friday where I saw a friend for lunch and all my old work colleagues in the evening for a proper old school pub session. Saturday started well with Pooch bringing me breakfast in bed and a lunch with Nickerjac and her husband as well as the irrepressible young'un who was on top form and such a wonderful boy. Sadly, en route to another friend's for tea before meeting a group for dinner, my stbbnseebil decided to tell my sister by email - copying me in - that he'd met someone else just a few weeks after walking out on her and their baby and she went to pieces. What a cock. So I am back here with her and will be until I leave to go back to Tokyo on Wednesday.
 
There are few plus points to all this, but it does mean I get to spend more time with Jasmine, who has decided one of her favourite things is being turned upside down. My arms are aching...I didn't have a hand free to picture that but I did catch Sian pretending she and Jasmine were running very fast earlier.

She is such a lovely baby! And her Mum is such a strong person. It's going to be so hard to say goodbye to them both for a second time in just a few days.

All the best to your sister. I'm sure she's enduring hell right now but in the long run it's better to have that $&*#^ out of her life. She'll find someone who appreciates her! (when she's ready to move on.) And she has a lovely daughter.
