I need a rant..

We have had house guests (BIL and SIL and Children) for two weeks.

I have just got in from work (they left to catch plane home after I left for work) DH insisted on us cleaning the house for two fucking days until it was gleaming, and they have left it in a right state (DH even spent another day at home cleaning and tidying last week they were that messy - think beer cans/crisp packets just being left where they were consumed - am not stepford by any stretch).

(OH has just got home from several months away).

Washing up piled on the side, dishwasher (from last nights dinner which I cooked and then cleaned up after) not even emptied, snotty tissues dropped on the floor and kids rooms trashed when they were really tidy in readiness for their arrival.

Asked if there was anything they didn't like "no" they said then every night SIL would push into the kitchen while I was in there cooking and make a different meal from everyone else for her and 1 of their DC confused.

Constantly feeding them chocolates, sweets and fizzy drinks, saying they wanted an evening meal but the kids not being hungry when it was ready then having the cheek to be sniffy about unhealthy white bread.

Pissing off upstairs for a shag for 45 mins when I got in from work while OH and I cooked and looked after all the kids.

I could go on .. And breathe........

we had DB and sil with 3 kids years ago, they said it was on route visit but they stayed 9 nights... never again, I fed them all they never offered a bean and we just got so fed up of having them sat around every night. every time its been hinted at again I have changed the subject and last time they were heading our way I said 'oh that's nice... you must call in' so far they seem to have got the hint. I am no good at having people around for long.

Time to discuss this with your DH now. Yes NOW. Before you forget the awfulness of it. As in "that was a bloody nightmare and they are never coming again. Agreed?" And make a note of the conversation for future reference. Cheeky caaaaahs.

And tell your FIL how bad it was so that he thinks twice before behaving in the same way.

I can't believe anyone would be so rude, don't ever let them stay again.

My recent guests, family of 5, so we had a real houseful of 10 of us all week (and only one bathroom) - never left any mess, stripped their beds before leaving, contributed odds and ends of top up shopping throughout the week, washed up all the time and bought wine, chocs and flowers for us when they left! They are welcome any time!

They did contribute but obvs it has cost quite a lot having them here.

At 1 point there were 12 of us as we have 6 kids and they all came home!!
