A little incident, where mountains are made from molehills?
Briefly outlined, a cup of Rosy was taken by my goodself to CBH who was in her bedroom this morning circa 7.25am. I knock on the door and seek admitance, which gets greeted with the regulatory hmmmph, sigh hmmmmmph, moan, hmmmmmph etc, and then the remark of " You know what I'm like in the morning"
To which I reply " A stroppy mare"
This then brings about tears and sobs and "Just go, leave me alone"
So after placing the Rosy on a table beside the door, I do just as requested.
A short while later after Jayne has come upstairs to find out what has upset CBH, I explain what occurred, to which the response I get is a scolding and it is explained to me that although I love our daughter, I do not like her. Also how would I like it if someone said to me " Cheer up, don't look so miserable"
Now I feel like I want to express my sentiments about what Jayne has said and thought about this incident, but at the moment feel unable to put into words a constructive and helpful comment, due to possible incursion onto regretabel "Oathing"
Prior to this on the previous evening, Jayne suggested I should have a shower because I had not had one that day or the previous evening. I informed her that I had had one that morning.
What happens next both upset and angered me, Jayne took it upon herself to check the shower to see if the tell tale signs that I had used it were there. Which of course they were. She then informed me that I had had a shower. I told Jayne that I couldn't believe that she had just checked. I twas ignored off. This morning probably totally forgotten? Or a guilt trip that attempts to be vindicated by out pouring the above vitriol.
Another little autistic aspergic moment?

Christmas has now come and gone and Santa bought me a wonderful present this year, that was a new Margery Allingham first edition whose cover will adorn this Blog shortly. In the meantime and as a special treat for Kay.
Charlotte Armstrong, "The Case of the Weird Sisters" First U.K. edition published by John Gifford Ltd, 1943, p191.
FORWARD:_When wealthy James Whitlock decides to marry his secretary, he did not take into consideration the reaction of his three sisters, all of whom are suffering from some sort of affliction. His amazing escapades and the ultimate entrance of MacDougal Duff, one time school teacher, but now solver of murder cases, will hold the readers attention absolutely to the end.
Gladys Mitchell "Noonday and Night" First U.K. edition published by Michael Joseph, 1977, p191.
FORWARD:_Called upon to probe the mysterious disappearance of two touring motor coach drivers, Dame Beatrice, Lestrange Bradley uncovers a racket which involves stolen antiques, smuggling and murder.
Later a third driver is missing, but reappears to tell a tale which Dame Beatrice suspects is only partly true. The story moves from a stately home in Derbyshire to a Cathedral town in West Wales and finishes in a loch-side hamlet not far from Fort William. One slender clue leads to another until the drama is played out and the murderer named.
Coach-party addicts may be able to recognise the various locations and those who contemplate their first coach tour may be reassured by the fact that, according to the story, only the driver-couriers get murdered, never do the passengers.
