Family ...

Marcos was away all weekend .. had a bus charter to do .. so I thought .. hmmm .. clean and vac the house on Saturday and then Sunday is left for sewing ... all day with no one about ... YAY ...

So I spent the day Saturday ...  (I do apologise for all this swearing girls) .... cleaning ... vacuuming ... doing laundry ... ironing ... changing bedding and even washing the quilts ... .. busy busy day ... by 6 o'clock I had eaten and showered and was sitting down with plans of falling asleep in front of the telly ... perfect end to a busy day ...

then at about 7 the dog jumped up and was at the door very excited ..tail wagging ... not barking ... just happy like Marcos or one of the kids was at the door ...

so I dragged my very tired frame up out of my chair and opened the door ... and there was our grandson .. all 18 years of him standing there with his bags in his hands and a girl by his side ... and of course my brain started racing off in 20 different directions with all sorts of scenarios .. I said to myself ... do not jump to any conclusions .. just wait till you hear what he has to say ... so they came in .. and to make a long long long story short ... she was not staying ... phew .. although he wanted to ... he left home in a huff a few months back .. and was supposed to come here a few months back ... but his mates mum talked him into staying there ... I met her the day after he was suppose to come here and I did not like her .. I don't often not like people .. but there was just something about this woman ... something off ...

Anyway .. this boy .. all 18 years of him told me how the weekend prior which was his 18th birthday ... this woman and her boyfriend and her son .... the grandson's mate .. purchased a bottle of rum and gave it to him for his birthday .. then told him a real man could drink the lot ... so being a stupid boy .. all almost 18 years of him decided to show them he was a man .... but turns out he could not drink all that rum at all ... well not drink it and then remember what happened .... thank God kids love to video things that happen around them ... .. there are heaps of videos floating around of my grandson .. tied and faffer taped to a chair ... basically unconscious cos he was sooooo drunk .. this tying up and taping was the handy work of the woman's boyfriend and her son ... then these 2 males attempted to punch and flog him sober ... he had bruises and lumps all over him ... his ear is still split .. a couple of the kids that were there called the police and 10 officers turned up .. no one has been charged yet ... i have to take the lad to the police station thru the week and he has to give a statement to them regarding this .. however he only knows what his friends have told him and what he has seen in the videos ... he remembers nothing ... apart from my very very very harsh words about drinking so damn much and being such a fool .. supposed to be an adult now mate ... if you want me to treat you like one .. then act like one .. blah blah blah ... i then made him ring his dad and tell them that he was here with me ... daddy then came to visit and left at about 11 ... so much for my relaxing .. falling asleep in front of the telly haha .. love my darling grandies ...

and today was spent with the dad ... mum .. and siblings of the 18 year old ... well until 3 this afternoon ... anyway ... tomorrow I will spend the day at the school and the police station and then to centrelink to get his payment removed from this woman clutches ... and then Tuesday it is a doctors appointment and hearing test for me ...

Yes I could have been sewing today ... but I wasn't ... instead I was talking and playing and feeding my family .. in my nice clean and very tidy house ... Then Mr 18 year old and I cooked dinner and ate .. and hubby got KFC on the way home from his job .....

On Wednesday I think I am going to lock myself in my sewing room and hit anyone who comes near the door with the broom handle ... or maybe I will just make them use the broom for the purpose it was designed for .... that would be good too ...


Sorry ... it was a bit longer than I intended it to be ... but then I never could tell a short story ... lol

  1. Ohh! I am sorry to hear this has happened to your grandson, disgraceful behavior. Some "Friend". True friends should look out for you.
    They should be charged and arrested.

  2. Oh I do hope this will be sorted soon and your grandson actually understands what has happened. It is so hard for them to go against who they thought were friends.
    How is your,hubbies ordeal going...

  4. Best laid plans have a way of going out the window when it comes to drama in the family. I jope your grandson comes out of this well, wiser and healthier.

  5. Sad to know that about your grandson. Unfortunate drinking is very common amongst youth now a days. I know how it must have felt but sometimes you got to accept such incidents and move on.
