Today was not so peaceful. We were up early before 6am and I was worn out by the time he left and I crashed for several hours. I did get a cooked breakfast and my car detailed and washed by him so that I could make him earn $30 which was a lot cheaper than what I had been quoted. I also paid for tea the night before.
He still would not add me as a Facebook friend and this morning I was hoping that he would be able to take Connor back for the weekend to use the facilities as he suggested but there was no-one home. It is Connor's birthday on Sunday and S did not have much intention of buying him anything. We started arguing about his role in his son's life and I insisted he buy him something/anything - a torch from a Supermarket. I hope he does. He has not bought him a Christmas present. He says he is too broke but whatever pay he gets from working he gets this evening so surely he can get something - even a packet of lollies. "He wouldn't want that - but the torch is OK". I got the usual about "them" trying to stop him from succeeding but I have to switch off to preserve my sanity or simply tell him to be quiet because I don't want to hear it.
I found a site that does cognitive testing and I must say I am finding it very hard except for remembering numbers. My profile looks terrible for one who used to have a high IQ and be a Uni tutor and teacher. I found the one below next to impossible.
