There's been a whole lot of these personal posts around lately. And I've had immense sympathy for everyone having a hard time. I felt chuffed with myself that the only stress that I had was work.
Then I get a message from my mother... Now we have always had a very difficult relationship. There were times that we would get along quite well. And then there were times that we just did not. There were times that I would actually feel physically ill at home because of the things that my mother would say to me and how kak I felt because of it. And going to work was a welcome relief.
There was a time that I wasn't allowed to go to BF's house, unless I took the dog with.... Or that when he came to visit and we wanted to go to a friends braai I would have to ask permission... This all way into my 20's.
Then finally we managed to get a place. And our landlord was great, they brought the rent down so we could afford it, they left a fridge and a stove, because the place that they moving into already has all of that. They said we can use the stove and fridge as long as we need to. And we were super grateful. Then my parents decided to buy all these things they left behind for us, or at least so I thought.
Because fast forward to the message I got. To inform me that my mother is going to see if she can sell her stove and then she will be fetching ours. And today I got the message to say that she's sold it and will let me know when they will be fetching ours.
I am completely stressed right now. I don't know what to do, I mean sure I could do without it, but electricity is already so expensive and money is tight. And BF is just completely pissed off. I don't think that my parents really approved of him. I mean, they don't even want to come to our place, because they don't want to come to HIS place. Even though it's as much my place as his.
Anyway, I just had to get it off my chest. Maybe someone will take pity on me and send me stove. At least I know it's not just me that has a difficult relationship with the parents.
Sorry for the rant.
