Horror scopes

The Belle Mere’s retaliation for being ignored has been astonishing, she has managed to scupper the plans of her ex husband (on a rare visit from Central America), involve other family members, move people from country to country, and invite a stranger into the mix for a particular outing this Sunday, snubbing us and rubbing everyones noses in it. This lady is not for taming.

Whilst we were in Southend I overheard The GR having a heated discussion with our managing agent who offered a meeting to discuss the possibility of rehousing us, Jeez, we just moved in 2 months ago, I’m sure they knew of the proposed building plans.

On the train back from Southend I pointed out our horoscope in the London paper to The GR:

‘Don’t yield, not because you’re necessarily on the brink of success (indeed that could be some way off yet) but because you recognise that if you feel strongly enough about something to take a stance, then you’re going to have to show people that you’re in for the long haul. Be defiant this weekend'.

Oh, no easy way out, or happy reconciliations on the horizon then.

The Grandad was so impressed with the accuracy he took the paper to read the Belle Mere's horoscope.
This was scarey:

'They just won't listen, will they. But you can make them listen. I'm not going to tell you how – I mean, you could make a banner, form a an air display or simply shake them hard – but I suspect you know of a better way to get under their skin. So put it into practice this weekend.'

Argh!

The Grandad, worried now and not really wanting to get involved having been divorced from the woman for 25years read his:

'Don't court danger this weekend. It's true that even if you walk on the cracks in the pavement, the Big Bad Wolf probably won't eat you – but let that be as risky as it gets for the next couple of days. If you can make more trouble for yourself, then you almost certaily will. Don't move out of your comfort zone.'

So, he is definitely not getting drawn in.

I read my horoscope on Thursday that was so spookily accurate about my life that I was sure the writer must be following me.
Good luck with it all.

@ Chic Mama
Usually I find if you read more than one, they all say more or less the same thing - so this was super spooky, we're all avoiding doing ANYTHING this weekend!
