I visited my son, his partner and my little granddaughter who lives a long way away so I had 5 nights away from home plus 2 long journeys of over 5 hours. This always wears me out and I accept I will need to recover when I return. I came home on the Monday and by the Friday I was beginning to improve but not back to normal. My partner who is usually very understanding decided to secretly invite another 2 grandchildren ages 12 and 4 to stay over for 2 nights. I found it hard to act excited when my daughter arrived and told me the news. My partner is very good with the children and does try to keep them busy but I still found it too soon after my other visit and am now suffering again. I’m in lots of pain and exhausted. I thought he got it but when I try to explain it was too soon he doesn’t get it. He got up with the youngest in a morning but I couldn’t sleep properly because of the noise and this just still makes me feel rough. How do I explain to everyone without sounding mean and ungrateful how it is for me?
