Welcome Back To A Day In The Life Of The Anonymous Me!
I know this isn’t a usual Blogmas style post, but I need to put it up and I need to share my thoughts. So I am sat here at my typewriter planning what I am going to write and letting all my emotions out. Please also leave Christmas related questions in the comments as I will be doing a Christmas Q&A soon.
I love my family and I value them all so much. I used to be so close with my Auntie, but recently she got married and it seems like she has changed. This causes moments of anger and dislike towards her inside of me and it is like there is a fire burning inside of me at these moments.
As she lives in a different country, we only get to see her 3-4 times a year. However, ever since she became engaged with her husband, his daughters have taken over when they come over to visit. When she used to visit she used to spend as much time as possible with me and my cousins. Now she is busy dealing with her step children and speaking to them in a different language. It makes me feel left out.
They are only nine and I respect that they need more looking after than I do, but I wish they wouldn’t come over every visit and be the centre of attention. My Mum loves my Auntie’s step children and so does my sister. Everyone is always talking about them, counting down the days until they arrive. I never do this and sometimes find myself counting the days until they leave.
I found out today that my Aunt is designing the calendars for next year. That was supposed to be my house’s thing. It is like she has taken over now she has two children to take 12 pictures of to put in the calendar. I had been really proud of some of the photos I had taken of family this year and collecting them. I guess that was all a waste of time.
Don’t get me wrong, they are lovely people, but I just wish that they would be a little bit more understanding and respect thst they can’t just shove their children into our family jigsaw and hope they fit. They need to be gradually introduced.
Until next time, goodbye
