Hope you all had a peaceful and enjoyable Christmas.
My last post was when I was feeling upset about the way my son had spoken to me and gone on and on and on.
The update is we had a long and honest chat and were both able to say how we felt. I told him I'd posted on here and about the responses I'd received.
We've come up with a code word for me to say when he's starting to go on and on and get a bit out of hand (for want of a better description).
We've used it a bit over Christmas and its lightened a couple of situations.
We had a great Christmas spent with friends, just what we needed.
The best thing for me, though, was the chat and being honest and trying to think of ways round certain issues.
I'm sure we'll be putting the code word into practice during the week as it's school holidays and it will be busy, noisy and a bit overwhelming but fun too.
Hope you all have a good week xx
