and I was uming and arghing about dad's birthday? I didn' bother sending a card in the end. I text him on the day wishing him a Happy Birthday. His reply was "Where's my expensive present?" I didn't bother replying.
Fathers Day yesterday again I just sent a text.
Now my niece shares the same birthday as my dad and my mum has been texting my sister all week asking when SHE is going to pick up her birthday card. Is that just off or what? No present, there wil be a fiver in the card or something but to not even bother to drop it off - or even pop it in the post! My sister has said she's done with them. My niece is 7 now and she's never in her little life had an Easter Egg off her nanny. She's never been taken to the park, nothing.
It make me so sad and so angry but I know if I talk to them about it it will just fall on deaf ears...yet mum will be contacting me asking why sis is ignoring her.

They could get her a little present even worth £5, its not the value with kids, it the getting a present :(

Exactly. Did you see my point about the Easter Eggs? They cost a bloody quid. And the fact she's asking when my sister will go and pick the birthday card up?! Out of order

Exactly, I quite agree with your sister. Its wrong, they are not children for very long

D is done with them too but I find it harder

It's not even the gift IMO it's the gesture. The thought, the fact you think, and remember and acknowledge it.
Sorry to say belle but I think you're right to accept it. Say it if you want it off your chest but not to change things.
I of course hope they have a change of heart though.

The fact they can't be bothered to take a card round to their grand daughters is pretty despicable IMO Hun. No wonder D and your sister have given up. If she asked you why your sister isn't talking or pickin up a card I'd have to tell them, I know it falls on deaf ears but they will eventually be the sorry ones because at Some point in their life they will need you lot more than you need them. It's rubbish for you to have this situation with them, some parents/grandparents don't realise how bloody fortunate they are to have grandchildren or children x

That's a great way to describe it Lauren despicable. No doubt mum will start contacting me soon asking why sis isn't answering her calls and I will tell her.
