what I saw was relief and in Gerry particularly, the attitude of a man who could finally get on with his pet project 'the wider agenda'.

Still spitting feathers over the Christmas thing!!!

Can anyone remember this? When they returned home to Leics the media were gathered outside of their home in the hundreds and one day not long after arriving back the big cat lawyers arrived (forgot their name LOL) anyway there was a picture of GM letting them in the front door of the house and I will never forget his face as they went in and he was left to close the door - he looked out at the cameras with a look of ' you will never prove anything now we have these guys on board' it was shown once and once only and then disappeared forever - me thinks the Lawyers made sure as it was such a vile picture and so telling! Anyone got any clues about where it may be?

This subject was discussed a few weeks ago and it's by no means certain that Madeleine was not with her whole family at Christmas 2005.

One of those calls is particularly strong in Eileen's memory.

She said: "When she was two, Madeleine spent Christmas at my house and it was lovely.

"The next year, the family came up for New Year but on Christmas Day Madeleine called and said she'd got a kitchen from Santa. She was very excited and said 'I'm going to make some tea'."

I think Eileen meant the whole family, and the the next year they didn't go up for Christmas but the New Year.

I've often wondered about the 'twins' thing and if Maddie was surplus to requirements. If you look at these photos of Kate and Gerry they seemed to dress alike - colour coordinated. Like the family had two sets of twins and Maddie was the odd one out.

I also think Maddie's 'disappearance' was pre-planned. Always have.

Hmmmm thinking so when Madeleine was two eh? So she would be two years and seven months at that Christmas, so yes still two, the twins would have been ten months, but they nor the parents are mentioned, just Madeleine. However they are mentioned as a family visiting the following new year by which time Madeleine would be three going into four so that must have been the new year of 2007. Christmas 2006 at home then they all go up to see Grandma Eileen for the new year ie 2007.
flag I am reading it that she was there alone with Grandma Eileen.

I always thought that maybe Madeleine had been playing up & Kate lost her temper & things went a bit far. But then a lot of what I've read points towards it being planned.
It's the printed pictures that have got me. I don't ever remember reading anything that pointed to why they had them or where they were printed. When they were asked, what did they say, or were they never asked?
Sorry it's a while since I read up on the case, I'll have to try & read it again to refresh my memory.

Going back to the video of TM that's been mentioned, I'm sure that I've watched it before but I can't find it on you tube, can anyone remember the title?

We went over that not long ago and it was definitely Maddie alone, Eileen's husband had died I think and the idea was that it would be nice if she had Madeleine. It was confirmed but I don't know where to find it right now.

I get what you all saying about their reaction afterwards, the laughs and in that particular picture, the happy faces. Which is really sad. I am going to share my opinion on this. It has been discussed on here, I dont remember by who, but that's my feeling too.

Like I said earlier I dont' think Kate is either mentally or emotionally stable. I am a mother of one. My daughter had colic when she was a baby and was quite a hyper todler. To top it all she has OCD, Which means things could become tiring at times. Now don't get me wrong here and I'm sure all healthy balanced mom's and dad's will understand that there are times that you do need a break.

With Kate, Gerry and Madeleine. I think they loved her in their own way. They waited a long time for her, but I think it all changed when the twins came. I think we all have come to the conclusion that Madeleine was difficult as a baby and it became worse when the twins was born. To raise 3 kids under the age of 4 can't be an easy task. I'm sure there are people for whom it comes natural to maybe raise 5 kids under the age of 6, but

1) Parenthood did not come natural for them
2) They lived a life where there weren't space for "difficult" kids
3) Madeleine probably became more and more demanding once the twins were there
4) There were even talks of having her adopted by someone in the family - which means Kate did not cope with the kids, less so Gerry.

For a person to change her life from being "hotlipshealy" to a full time mother of 3 small kids is massive. Kate comes across as someone being desperate at times, and I'm sure it was like that even before the incident. The fact that there were plans on having her adopted by family tells me that they didn't want her but also didn't want to let go of her fully (even if it was just to keep their concious clear) I mean life with one less child would have been a lot easier on Kate. Sad, but true :-(

But that is why I can see why they look relieved. It was like the problem was solved. WE don't have to feel bad anymore for trying to give her away. We can pretend now to have been the best parents to her ever. We can pretend to have loved her to bits. We don't have to explain to anyone why we want to give our daughter away.

They are in their own little world now, just how they wanted it. Them and the twins.

The fact that Kate said "it was not suppose to happen like this". Well to me it confirms what I'm thinking. She probably wanted Madeleine gone, but not like this. I for one can not stand Gerry McCann because of his controlling nature. But I can also see Kate can become emotionally draining. Even before the incident. She is a loose cannon.... even though she seem to be in control sometimes its probably because of some meds she is using too. They way she talks (which have been discussed on plenty of blogs) She talks slow, then faster then pauses - long silences then fast and slow again. She always looks tired. And I think for them now, the guilt for literally not wanting her full time is worse than the fact that she is dead.

Apr 27 2008 By Grace Macaskill, Sunday Mail
Exclusive Madeleine: Our Year Of Pain
MADELEINE McCANN'S beloved Scots gran has spoken for the first time about her family's year of torment.
Saturday will mark the first anniversary of Madeleine's abduction in Portugal.
In a heart-breaking interview, Eileen McCanndescribes the pain her son Gerry and daughter-in-law Kate haveendured... and her lasting hope that her lost angel can still be foundalive.
_snipped________________


Eileen says Madeleine's twin siblings Sean and Amelie still regularly talk about their sister, despite the 12 long months which have passed since she vanished in Praia du Luz on Portugal's Algarve.
She said: "Kate and Gerry don't have to remind the twins Madeleine is no longer there because they ask where she is all the time.
"They pick up the phone to speak to her and ask, 'Where are you?'"
(philomena has almost word for word the same sort of story about the twins - at another date)

"I knew Madeleine had been abducted, I just knew it in my heart. She would never have got up and gone off on her own, it just wasn't in her nature.
"She wouldn't have left the twins, she was like a wee mother figure to them.
"If someone lifted her out of bed Madeleine would have screamed the place down. That girl could throw a tantrum if she wanted to and she and the twins were quite shy about meeting new people.
"I just can't imagine what happened."
Eileen described how Gerry tenderly read his children a bedtime story just hours before Madeleine vanished.
She said: "They'd had a really full day because they'd been up early.
"Gerry said he put Madeleine and the twins to bed and read them all a story. He said they were very tired and he almost fell asleep too.
"He and Kate didn't leave until after 8pm and the children were sound asleep. They then checked on them every half hour. Who could have imagined that somebody would take Madeleine as she lay sleeping in her pyjamas?"( those pyjamas figure rather large in the narrative)
snip.
- somebody came into Maddie's room, carried her out in her pyjamas and we just don't know where she is. It's the stuff of nightmares.

She is near to tears as she describes how close a bond she felt to Madeleine from the day she was born.
Eileen said: "Madeleine was in my heart from that very first day.
"She was born on a Tuesday and I went down to see her on the Friday.
"I felt I had a really special bond with her.
"One night I took her into my bed to let Gerry and Kate get a sleep and it was just lovely having her lying there next to me.
"When I couldn't get to see her, I would speak to her on the phone."
One of those calls is particularly strong in Eileen's memory.
She said: "When she was two, Madeleine spent Christmas at my house and it was lovely.
"The next year, the family came up for New Year but on Christmas Day Madeleine called and said she'd got a kitchen from Santa. She was very excited and said 'I'm going to make some tea'."
This Christmas was spent without the blonde-haired, green-eyed girl who fills Eileen's life with such joy.

Snipped.

Yes, I posted the relevant clip earlier tigger, and I think we will have to agree to disagree. It can be read both ways. As Eileen was specifically talking about Madeleine throughout that article, she says Madeleine came up for Christmas, because she was talking about her, To me, that is the way it is written, and I would take it the whole family was there.

I'm not sure where it comes from that Kate said: It wasnt suppose to happen like this. But I remember its been said all over forums for a long time. Can't find a link though.

Only closest words I can find for now though is this : "I know that what happened is not due to the fact of us leaving the children asleep. I know it happened under other circumstances." -

Oops sorry - need to get up to speed with these things! Then again was he having difficulty remembering which 'one of our party' saw the abduction - it doesn't matter what comment you read by these guys there is always something strange about them!! Oh well off to do some catching up on the previous threads - keep up the great work I have every faith that one day someone out there will eventually find that missing piece of the puzzle and BINGO!!

I think that is covered very well in the transcripts of the mcCann interviews on the McCannfiles.com. And also in the Dr. Roberts' articles, where he analyses their interviews. I'm sure the above remark is there. Because Gerry also made a remark to the effect that he wasn't there when she was taken. Fascinating reading.

@jd

Just to get back to the theory of 1st May. I'm currently reading through some of the statements again. It in unbelievable how much info there is on this case... and to absorb and reason through all of it. I came across something I totally forgot about which is:

However, both Jane Tanner and Russell O'Brien have stated that he did not go to the Tapas Bar on the 'Quiz Night' (ie Tuesday 1st May 2007), but had stayed in their room looking after his sick daughter. Jane Tanner took his dinner to the room; thus explaining the unused plate setting. Russell O'Brien was not asked by either the Polícia Judiciaria or Leicestershire Police whether he had heard Madeleine crying!

Yesterday I mentioned the 3rd because Russel was away from the table for quite a while. I forgot or didn't realize that he never went for supper on the 1st.... That was the night Maddie was crying. I'm trying to put a few puzzle pieces together. Lol normally I'll start and leave for a while, read again, try again get other opinions etc. I am practically back to square 1 right now.

eta: It also seems that Kate's phone was quite busy between 10:15 and 10:27 on the 1st.
