I didn't buy it.
My granddaughters rang for my birthday, lovely surprise. Both are doing well and making their own way in life. Their mother is in Botswana, with a church group, building houses for the poor. Considering the way in which she brought up her own girls, she's racking up Karma big time.
Not a groat left in their Trust Fund, money that should have lasted until they were at least 20. Not after she picked it clean. Eldest granddaughter using information I gave her, checked with the Trust and found out the whole deal. Mother dearest might have provided receipts and invoices for items bought but nothing stopped her from selling them on and keeping the cash for herself. She even did this with the house the Judge demanded she buy for the children. His mistake was not putting in writing that the house was to belong to the girls or if sold, the money should be returned to the trust or another house bought. She sold the house exactly 12 months later to avoid paying tax on the sale and pocketed the loot. I have never forgiven her for that on a long list of 'not forgivens'.
I cost me a fortune to make a will tying up this house and money so that she could never get her hands on it and it went to the girls. Even then they weren't to have it until they turned 25 but it looks like I will get to see them reach that age, terrific.
I am always polite to the bitch when I meet her, secret knowledge makes me serene and she will never accumulate enough Karma to undo the damage she's done to every person who ever crossed her path.
Just thinking about it upsets me and I wish I still had that cake.
