Aww Karen, I feel your pain. I have just bought some slip on ones. I have also put a pair of slip on Vans on my Xmas list to wear in the spring when I really can't reach my feet I had a pair when I was pregnant with Shaun and they were awesome

The nice tree in my living room is a plum colour and is 6ft. Stephen moans that it's too small and not tacky enough. The monstrosity in the dining room is 7.5ft, green and tacky as hell! It's like a grotto in there. It's nice on Xmas day I guess lol.

I think we're booking our 3d scan for the 22nd dec. so excited

Got terrible news yesterday. Shaun's gran only has a couple of weeks left to live. It's his dads mum and she's his favourite person in the world. I'm going to have to tell him and break his wee heart and I can't stop crying just thinking about how upset he's going to be. This is def going to be the hardest thing I've ever done.

Shaun's aunt is pregnant and today is her due date. She's desperate to give birth so her mum can see the baby. We were initially told the cancer was terminal but treatable and she'd have about 5 years. This was only 6 months ago so she has declined quite quickly. She's in a hospice now so it's really the end. I have a lot of love and respect for the woman, she's been amazing to my wee boy and when me and his Dad split up, she was the voice of reason and kept things calm when tempers flared. Darren was quite bitter about the split and I'm not sure we would have got through it half as well if it weren't for her wading in, reminding us to put Shaun first and telling Darren to behave himself! She's been the best Gran ever to him and he absolutely adores her. It's really going to break his heart into a million pieces. He was bad enough when our cat died, he's such a big hearted wee boy. I have no idea when or how to tell him, I just know I need to prepare him somehow. He has his nativity play on Tues and Weds. I'll wait until after then and tell him, that way it's easier for him to miss a few days of school.

Aww Laura sorry, I can't offer any advice. I think I would wait until after the school nativity as well.

Awww Laura. I can't imagine how you must be feeling. I hope when you do manage to tell Shaun, that he has a chance to see her again and say his goodbyes. I'll be thinking of you over the next few days. Big hugs to you and Shaun! Xx

Shaun's Dad lived with her until Shaun was almost 6 so he stayed with her every weekend. Now his Dad lives in the same street so he still sees her every weekend. It's going to be so tough for him! We are going to tell him on Thursday, after his nativity. That was he can have Friday off and hopefully he can see his Gran that weekend if she's allowed out of the hospice.

They are hoping to have her home for Christmas Day (providing she survives that long) so I have said if she makes it home, Shaun can spend Christmas with them. It will mean I'll be alone on Christmas day from 1:30pm until 9:30pm while poor Stephen has to work but I don't mind if it means they get to make some final, happy memories together.

The other option is Stephen's mum and aunt can hang around after everyone else leaves but I think I'd rather chill out on my own haha.
