36. Your Home…
This is one of those occasions where timing is amazing!lol
I live in two different houses at the moment because my Mum and my partners houses are in two different areas, but because they are both close to where my two different work places are. I’ve been spending half a week at one house and the rest of the week at the other house. It’s been good though, I still get to see my mum, my dog and my partner and his cat and feel like I’m spending time with everybody. I can also say that I feel safe at both and that is the best feeling ever!
The other thing that’s happening though is my creepy cousin (I’ll be writing about that one later) He turned up to my Mums house. Now before I say what happened, this is the situation. My cousin is MY blood cousin, he’s my Dads nephew. When my parents split my Dads sister, her husband and my creepy cousin all took my Mum’s side. The problem is my cousin has always had a crush on my Mum, and it is not subtle either. For some reason though she always hangs out with him, they are close in age, but it’s still weird to me. The other thing I’ll mention is that they live (he’s 51, he’s just become retired, and still lives at home with his mum and dad) about 10 minutes away.
Last weekend he turns up too my Mums house, bangs on her door. She said that really loud banging and so she runs to the front door, she was drying her hair at the time. Opens the door and he starts accusing her having someone in the house. He saw someone guy in a suit come up and knock on her door and when he drove around, the guy in the suit was gone.
- Mum never heard anyone else knock on the door,
- There was no other man in the house.
- Who WAS the strange man in the suit?
- Not that any of that is his business
Since then she’s been really shaken up by what he did. The surprising thing is he apologised NOT for clearly stalking her, banging on her door and scaring the jabber out of her because he’s just being “protective”. He apologised for accusing her of having someone in the house, when she didn’t. They are not dating, my mother is not interested in him.
It’s sad because now she doesn’t feel safe in her own home and she gets angry at herself, because she was so shocked that she felt like she had to justify to him, instead of telling him off. Now she doesn’t feel safe in her own home. Even after this, he still doesn’t get it and he actually invited himself over to watch a football game, that my Mum has never been interested in. She did say no that though. So FINALLY she is actually going to have a word with his mother…Like a 13 year old kid *rolls eyes*
I have to say I don’t feel comfortable either anymore. Even though I know that it’s her his interested in. My Mum goes out dancing every Tuesday evening and I stay and look after our dog, especially mainly because I’m working there at the time. I went to the bathroom and I started to freak out, what if he doesn’t believe that she’s out dancing, what if he just sits there, waiting for her to come back?
A home should always make you feel safe. You should be able to sit inside, go to the bathroom and feel like you are finally out of the rat race and all the drama, and that no one is peering in on you.
I am grateful for my homes, I feel safe and loved…It’s just a shame someone dumb has decided to disturb the peace…GET A LIFE!!!
