Im in the dark pretty much.
I guess I'm just looking for extras to take that would be appreciated.
She suggested bringing more chocs as they eat loads 🙂
Shes so busy, she's hard to communicate with .
I often don't even get a response to to a yes or no question .
Mums, I hope you read this .❤️
I'm travelling a long way.
I would also put a pack of AA and AAA batteries in my hand bag Just in case they are needed for toys
I would suggest helping with the children, take them off her hands and take them to the park.
Food wise, stuff that will keep. Stuff that can go into lunch boxes, maybe things that are a bit unusual, b and m for example have freddo frog chocolate that has popping candy (hard to get hold of).
I'm not sure of how long you are staying or finances but is it worth offering to treat the family to a pizza delivery?
Supermarkets are full of things like this at the minute. All of these are what 'add' to any Christmas-time meals served.
She can ration it if she feels its too much for the children, or put it all out to nibble on.
I would take some drinks (for adults & chidlren) but nothing major as shes likely got that in hand.
