DH has just announced he is too busy to take time of work when his parents come:mad:. So I have to keep them entertained all day on Thursday and Friday. F-I-L is not so bad, limitless cups of tea and the Telegraph crossword and he is quite happy, but M-I-L is so very competitive about everything. If you have a headache, she has a migraine, if you have a sore throat, she has to have pneumonia, if you are tired,she is falling asleep while driving..... She has favourites among the grandchildren:eek:, and she has a favourite child too:eek:. I don't know what is the matter with the woman.
But it is not my place to have an opinion, as I have ' just married in'. Ho jolly hum. I turn into Mary Poppins at this point, harness my inner Julie Andrews and play my internal 'Perry and Terrence' soundtrack (southpark), and nobody knows as I hand around gluten free, dairy free, ginger tiffin slices, while she complains that she really doesn't need the extra calories..................................:rotfl:
