So my “birthday surprise” from my boyfriend arrived today. It was my mum just as I predicted it would be.
I’m so mad at him and of course he doesn’t see why and I look like an ungrateful bitch (also as I predicted).
Who wouldn’t be happy to have their mum as a surprise? I love my mum. I always want her to come visit. My issue is the wrong timing (I was home a month ago with her and can’t take any time off work while she is here); the financial implications – neither of us have money; and the fact that my boyfriend is not giving me what I do want and getting us further from our goals not closer.
I tried to explain to him that something this big needed to be discussed with me. He tried to justify why he did it. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter. He spent a lot of time and money on something that I didn’t want and now I feel like shit for not liking it.
