Ok, so you may know already that I live with my elderly parents, and that my 80s diet plan has led me to start cooking !! Wow, a whole week so far, and no retreating upstairs with a takeaway and a large bag of crisps.! My mum, has to cook everything herself,vwhich is admirable, she's 86, but....shes in the kitchen ALL the time and doesn't like me in the way. But- im managing..but..
Help needed because, like today she watches me cut up loads of veg and boil an egg and says " your having an egg AS WELL??"
this totally irritates me , it takes me back to the days when she would make comments such as - no wonder your so fat, eating all that food....yes, I do have an attitude problem with my mum, and at 64 you'd think id have grown out of it..but no.
So.... Any ideas as to how I could react to her in this, without being really nasty and telling her to xxxx off, which is, sadly what I want to do.
Give me a clue here- how would YOU react ??
