Evening

Postby Danielle 31 » Sat Aug 12, 2017 11:06 pm

Evening all, my pirate ship is going very slowly not like me at all. Feeling really down at the moment, I've just joined Facebook, for the purpose of cross stitching.
Really wish I hadn't, found things out about my brother and his girlfriend that had really upset me. As you all know my mum died last September what I didn't know my bro girlfriend, posted pics of my mum on Facebook which I don't agree with she said she had my bros permission but surely she should of had mine too. There is one particular photo that breaks my heart and it's awful don't want to remember her like that I don't want the world seeing her like that. Also tonight she had put up a for sale notice for a bike that I bought my niece for her first bday it cost 80 quid, the sign goes like this, NO USE for bike at all used once for half an hour,wants 50quid for it. I know Ella is 4 soon and she has outgrown it but to never have used it makes me feel worthless and a waste of my money I really want to ask for it back so I can give it to charity at least other people will appreciate it. There's all these little things with them over the few days, it's making me stressed which is not good for my arthritis, people will probably think it'd my own fault for joining up, I only wanted to join for my live of cross stitch.
I'm sorry for putting it on here but I only have hubby to speak to just needed to let off a bit of steam. Thanks for listening hope everyone enjoys the rest of the weekend happy stitching. Xxxxxx :(

Hi Danielle sorry your so sad and down. That's not good about your brothers girlfriend I can understand why you would be so upset.

Sorry to hear this Danielle. You don't need to add all of your family etc. Just make a sort of secret page that you can use as to connect on cross stitch lots of people do it like 'stitching fan' as your name something more your kind of thing. Then you're anonymous like on here.

Sorry you have been upset by these postings. This is the downside of facebook. But perhaps you can also block her so that you do not have to see anything of her postings and she can't see yours either. Also make sure you set your privacy settings too.

Hope you get things sorted. Some people don't think about how it will effect others what they put on Facebook.

You can play around with your settings so you only see what & who you want to, and vice versa, my settings are pretty high due to where I work & problem family members!

Thank you all will take your advice. Thanks for listening and advising xxxxxx :) Hubby thought he would cheer me up, he bought me this to put the ends of the thread in or chocolate wrappers lol so it doesn't interrupt my stitching to get up to go to the bin, thought it was very cute and a good idea.

So sorry to hear you have been so upset by Facebook postings. They are very hurtful & those sort of things do stick in your mind. Glad you DH tried to cheer you up.

I am glad others have given you advice as I do not understand Facebook. Went on it & got in touch with an ex work colleague which I was pleased about so we exchanged news. Then realised all those on her list could read my messages too. Naively I thought they were just between me & her, soon changed my mind & closed a/c when I saw a message from someone else which I could read.

Hope you feel a bit better today, expect it will take a while for the hurt to go though. Take care.
Del

Thanks Bron xxx :)

Thank you Del, I thought I had figured out the privacy setting, turns some people can still see unless I'm still not doing it right.really don't like this, I'm trying not to let it bother me now,i don't think Facebook is all its cracked up to be, I feel much happier on this forum and your all really supportive. At least we have all the same interest and love what we do. So thank you again for all your support. ;) Xxxxx
