    Swans game on TV tomorrow!!!!

    Because my grandma has Foxtel.
    And today she came over for lunch and I had a sook.
    So she went home and subscribed to the footy channel.
    I think it was a covert way of getting me & the kids over there for most of tomorrow, but I don't care, I'll endure that pain to watch the game.

    Plus she got marshmallows to cook by the open fire.
    And strawberries & ice cream for the kids (& me )

    And I'll probably head over there on Sunday, because she got the Footy for the next 2 months

    It's actually my wife's grandmother, but I kind of adopted her because my grandmother stole money off me and that caused some bad blood and we never spoke again.
    And now she's dead, so I doubt we'll sort that out soon.
    So I'm starting over with a new and improved grandmother, and so far it's going swimmingly.

    She even watched last week's crap game.
    I taught her that it was a mark not a catch.
    And we had a fairly lengthy discussion about how they get 6 points and one point.
    Maybe one day I can set her up with Kenny. If he's not married anymore.
    And I bet he isn't because his wife and that other couple who used to be behind the goals would have got pretty pissed when he got selected to be some kind of weird Swans mascot and they didn't.

    Wow.....out of all that....the thing i am most impressed with is a grandmother that stole....OMG..that just blew all my stereotypes away.

    Mind you the kids I talk to go on about their old grandmothers and it turns out they are my age. That blows my mind too.

    In her defense, she was encouraged by my 'possibly mentally ill' mother
    All a big part of my mother and father's marriage bust up.
    But she did what she did, and I made it known that all she had to do was apologist, but it seems she didn't want to0 do that.

    I'd replace my mum with my wife's mum, but my mum's not dead yet, so people might look down on that.
    I have a kind of surrogate mum in my best friends mother.
    He's been overseas for the last 18 months, so I could have exploited that but that just seems morally wrong

    Nah, my Grandma was a bit old and easily led.
    My mother is very manipulative, perhaps like that Sylvania Waters chick - I didn't watch the show.

    My family is very dysfunctional.
    My brother and father don't speak.
    I haven't had anything to do with my sister for 20 years.
    My mother is currently out of my life due to a long story involving her grandchildren.

    Unfortunately my life is much better and happier without certain people in it.
    Who needs the constant drama?
    Plus they don't support the Swans.
    Although my dad is a Saints supporter and he's cool.
    And my brother is Essendon and i get along with him.

    My eldest daughter is 'out of the family' at the moment because she says that she supports Collingwood.

    Is she going through the stage of losing her teeth?

    Nah, it's her second head taking over.
