    :cry: Working 7 days aweek at the moment and doing some eveings as well but in laws are still doing my head in.
    Been with us 3 months and still just over 3 weeks before they go.I hate to imagine what my gas and electric bill will be like.
    Father in law just sits watching tv all day and mother in law plays on a ds all day.They have been buying shopping as thier way of helping but they buy frozen food from farmfoods?We only have frozen food when we dont have the time for anything else but very rare.
    I have upset them a couple of times but they still wont go.I keep getting on to them about thier health has they do not do anythink,no walking ,no hobbies just sit all day,that can not be good.Could go on and on but got some of it of my chest.

    Now how frustrating family can be but have you considered that


    perhaps there is something they arent telling you xxxxx and are desperately wanting to spend what they consider quality time with you all

    Hope this is the right place to reply. Been staying with the daughter and her miserable old hubby ...... he keeps telling me to get off my backside and go walking. Today it was snowing and below freezing .... is he trying to tell me something? I wish he would go off in that motorhome of his and let me enjoy sitting with the gas fire on full belt and watching tv, drinking all his tea and what have you. Any suggestions gratefully received.

    from the Mother in Law:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    They sold thier house years ago and live in a static and yes sometimes they do tour with us.They are like parents to me really,dont come from a close family myself so perhaps thats why they can really pixx me off sometimes.

    My God,
    I feel so much better now, I was feeling a bit low what with the recession, downturn in business, plummeting margins, increasing material costs.
    Now I realise how lucky I am, I could be in your position.
    Hang on in, you will reap your reward ?
    Well let's hope so you DESERVE IT.

    Oh! You have no idea of how I sympathise!! We have mother in law with us since father died - and she is exactly the same!!

    ITV3 all day, all night- every day she watches die hard, every one being ' a new one' - I tried to explain that there was only 4! lol!

    The rest of the time she is on DS, unaware of the TV's din, which she claims she is still watching - oh! The tv is faulty...it isn't her that turns the volume up to an ear splitting 12 - it turns ITSELF up. I suppose it goes with the Telephone, which she says is faulty, as it doesn't ring as loud as it used to - of course, she is NOT deaf...the items are faulty and we all mutter because we are ignorant!

    we tried so hard to get her to go out - but she wont! 'Happy in my chair' she says.

    But hopefully she is going to move in with bro-in-law soon to give us a break - he has no idea what he is in for!!!:BigGrin:

    AAaahhh that explains it


    If they live in a static some static parks dont allow you to stay all year round !!!!

    Be tolerant Dave xxxx Parents and inlaws are not around forever (although at times it does seem like it)


    Why not take advantage of the situation - leave them to house sit and take your wife/partner off for a romantic weekend !!!!

    David,,,,, If you stick a pin through the Co-Ax aerial cable it will make the picture go very fuzzy and snowy make sure you stick it through the centre, so the pin touches the braded part and the single bit in the middle.. :thumb:

    They will either buy you a new telly or pi$$ off home.. :RollEyes:

    When they have gone just pull the pin out and back to normal,, if outside put a bit of tape over the pin hole to stop water getting in..

    Worked on the old dragon that lived next door to me when I was a lad and complained every time I started my motorbike. :Rofl1:

    Quite agree - although they drive us all mad now, these things will be the endearments we chuckle about later!

    One of my fondest moments of the father-in-law, was when he eventually admitted he has going deaf - he bought a hearing aid, and the first night was a laugh. He sat agitated for ages, and we were wondering what was up (he was ill so we thought he was in pain) - then he blurted out 'For gods' sake turn that TV down, and stop shouting'.......He never did use the hearing aid again!

    We may moan now, but we love them really :BigGrin:

    ...............and one of these days it will be YOU doing the same thing to your kids.........it comes around much quicker than you expect :cry: and I bet you won't enjoy being told off for taking it easy!!

    However, I really do sympathise with you - 3 months is a seriously long time for relatives to stay!!!!
