So two weeks ago I had major gynae surgery.

I'm feeling better but I've a long way to go yet and am not driving, have two dds 12 and 2 so pretty hard to get a rest as it is and dh is back at work.

So pil ring just now, caught me on the hop and announced they were visiting at the weekend.

This will involve an overnight stay and no help, dh will be at work and dd1 is in panto so in and out all weekend.

So for the first time in 8 years I said NO!
I actually said those words. No I'm not really feeling up to visitors yet and dd will be busy and tired so I'd rather leave it until another weekend.

Yay, the world didn't end, they didn't drop dead and I am happy and don't have make endless cups of tea or be on my best behaviour. Job done.

Have lurked on your previous threads, delurking to high 5 you!

Jolly good show. thanks

You absolutely have to put yourself first at times like this - an oasis of looking after yourself in a lifetime of caring for your loved family.


- that was meant to be loved ones, not loved family, which just sounds knobbish.

Impressive! Were you tempted to spin a tale instead of saying no?

Well done you smile

High fives everyone whilst blowing kisses!

talc yes that would have been knobbish!
Loved family! grin
crowler you know what, I was but I literally couldn't think of one and then realised the truth was reasonable.
I really don't feel like making small talk or worrying about clean bedding or enough food to eat.
Or making three cups if tea every time I want one.

Dh was pretty impressed too.

Ledkr Wed 22-Jan-14 19:43:03

Why would they even think it was ok??

Good job - said in a bad American accent! Bet you feel like strutting around the room!

Well done smile

It's bloody well taken long enough

It's a shame they aren't the sort to help out, that would have been lovely, but given the massive pain in the arse they are CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS!!

Ledkr Wed 22-Jan-14 19:48:06

Thanks chippy tbh they do help a bit more these days but I'm meant to be resting which is hard enough with two dds and dh at work, I just don't feel like visitors and I realised that was ok. It's not them who've had the operation is it?

Well done smile
