Yesterday my brother-in-law came up to help me make a start on my husband's shed. We did really well. My neighbour (who is lovely and has helped a lot) asked if he could have all the wood so we duly gave it to him. He then asked about some hardboard and I said I wanted to hold on to it for now in case someone kindly offers to finish boarding my loft.
Well I went round there for a cup of tea last night and he is really p****d with me. He said that last week I said he could have it so why had I changed my mind. Firstly I don't remember saying I'd give him to him but secondly I don't really understand why he should be so upset about it. I've given his son a stair ladder which is in perfect condition (he's a plasterer) for nothing, I'm giving some garden furniture to his daughter for nothing and am going to sort out some hand tools for his other son.
I was in tears and told his wife I would never do anything to upset him and she told me to ignore him. But I'm a bag of nerves this morning. One other neighbours are really nasty so I don't want to fall out with the good ones. I even said he could have it after he made a fuss but he said no.
I don't need this stress, I can't cope with it.
