Spoke to my mum last night and was informed by her that She and my Dad will not be coming to visit us ....ever!!! Mmmm, well i knew she had doubts but this is quite a shock, last year they were looking into re-newing passports as my cousin had helped them fill the forms in, she said they have never really been ' Travellers'' and it's not really them. Now i understand they are old but i would have thought that seeing where your son and Grandchildren live would be quite an adventure, we even said we would pay for the flights, but it seems by the way mum spoke that they are not very interested, she said we have never been an emotional family and that a phone call once a month will suffice, I told her we might go back for a visit in 2011, but its hard for us with 2 kids and it seemed that she even tried to put me off doing that, she said it would be a lot of hassle and we would have to find hotels and stuff to stay in. The thought of not seeing my parents again is not one i want to contemplate, and we will be going back but not sure when, she asked me to take some photos of the area we live and send them, like thats good enough. I'm quite upset and peed off to be honest, i know they would love it here and we have plenty of room in the house!!!!!!
Maybe i'm being a bit harsh but a little bit of effort on there part wouldn't go amiss, i know my Dad is a real man of habit and likes routine but surely you would of thought they would want to come out here.
This decision dosen't change a thing about how i feel about coming here, i wouldn't change that the anything, My mother in law had a quiet word with them and got the same excuses....ah well!!!!!!!!
