Sorry not a yabu but couldnt find chat on the app.

Sil is making a big fuss about her nearly 5yo needing a nap after lunch trying to dictate to mil when she serves dinner and we are wrong because we stayed at pil last night (despite it being so we can help this morning and go visit DH GF in his nursing home).

My ds was 2 last week he wont be napping, DN is at school she doesnt need to bloody sleep surely?

She is a twat who is not ruining our day angry

CharlieAlphaKiloEcho Wed 25-Dec-13 08:33:12

Not yet but 2 hours in and I'm almost ready to tell my mum to STFU about my sister and BIL. Honestly, she went on for hours about them last night. Not in a gushy way, in a pure gossipy aren't they terrible way sad (they are going through a divorce and she is loving the drama and trying to insert herself firmly in the middle)

I'm on here pretending to do some vital email checking....

trinity0097 Wed 25-Dec-13 08:41:38

Yes, hubby took offence when I told him to stop whittering on about high winds on Friday when my parents are due to fly back to Scotland. It just makes my Mum stressy!

AntiJamDidi Wed 25-Dec-13 08:42:22

No arguments yet today. I'm the only one awake so far. No relatives here either so we're hoping for an argument free day.

oldbaghere Wed 25-Dec-13 08:43:24

No but I'm the only one here grin

superbagpuss Wed 25-Dec-13 08:46:23

only with ds1 as I told him 6am was too early to get dressed

and I wanted him to open the clothes I had bought him

CarpeVinum Wed 25-Dec-13 08:47:44

DH just told me his friend is coming over at 3pm. With gifts.

I have no return gifts. I knew nothing about this !

I am frantically wrapping one of the Xmas Pandoro/Spumate gift sets given to me as pressie to gift to DH's friend. I know he will give me digital copies of his stunning close up plant/flower photos...and all I have is crappy no immagination pandoro/spumante gift set.

DH got "the look". We haven't argued, cos it's impossible to be properly cross with DS practically vibrating with delight at his pressies.But I did flash "the look" at DH when he casually dopped that big of news during pressie opening.

Prettykitty111 Wed 25-Dec-13 08:49:35

Not yet because it is just me and the dog atm BUT I've been at PiL for two days already and my mantra has become "he's not being drunk and rude hes trying badly to be friendly." Today may kick off spectacularly. My Fil is an alcoholic and has been drunk and shouting over everyone for last two days. You just can't have a quiet conversation!

Loopylouu Wed 25-Dec-13 08:50:38

Dh was very sarky and passive agressive to me when ds was openig his presents. He wanted to give him something we bought for his PC specifically from him but it got opened in the excitement. I was videoing ds so now have it all on camera what an arse dh was being to me about it. He's now in a strop with me.

He's also in a mood as he drank 6 cans of larger last night knowig that ds would be up early and excited. I have put in so much effort with stockings and presents for the pair of them and I just get bitched at because he's hungover.

I get nothing by the way, no presnent at all apart from the tin of buscits ds (11) bought me. I spent everything on ds and dh and now dh will be an arse all day because he's tired.

I'm 26 weeks pregnant and he didn't even get me a card.

ephemeralfairy Wed 25-Dec-13 08:54:11

No actual arguments, but a great deal of pass-agg sniping from my mum to DP. (she doesn't like him, for unfathomable reasons...!) Luckily he has a v thick skin! grin

Eastpoint Wed 25-Dec-13 08:56:15

Told my dad last night that I'd had 45 years of him putting me down & making jokes at my expense & I didn't want to hear any more. It didn't really help our big Xmas eve dinner but at least he stopped picking at me.

Euphemia Wed 25-Dec-13 08:57:05

I'm trying to muster patience before tolerating DH's stupid remarks about DD's presents. Every bloody year ...

hb1976 Wed 25-Dec-13 09:00:57

Not so much arguments as uncomfortable, sad silences as we found out yesterday that my grandad has cancer and needs his leg amputated in January. We are all trying to stay cheery for my 2 year old daughter's sake as she is so excited and adores her great granddaddy but it's so hard :-(

sashh Wed 25-Dec-13 09:08:17

Well the cat told me off for letting her food bowl become empty. Does that count?

17leftfeet Wed 25-Dec-13 09:10:37

My 12 year old was an ungrateful sod when opening her stocking so I told her she was ungrateful and took the whole lot off her

I made a big deal about having lots of noisy fun with her sister and she came round and is now being sweetness and light after a big apology and a cup of coffee peace offering

StillaChocoholic Wed 25-Dec-13 09:10:48

We've only just woken up! May go and have an argument with the twat that's started a fire round the back though. My living room stinks of bonfire.

blahe Wed 25-Dec-13 09:11:38

hb1976 - so sorry sad I posted on your other thread about it xx

pictish Wed 25-Dec-13 09:25:14

No. It's all good Christmas cheer in here.

Loopy - sorry your dh is spoiling things. What a prick. Poor you. xx

Trigglesx Wed 25-Dec-13 09:29:35

yes, already. ffs.

ddubsgirl Wed 25-Dec-13 09:39:04

was pissed off last night as dh went out for drinks with his work mates at 1pm I was going to go for a drink after work at 7pm but dh was still out drinking so I had to come home sad as kidd were at home no dinner and I had to get the turkey cooked dh turned up at 8.30 and passed out on the bed but all good this morning kids up really early grin as thunder woke us all up and didnt really get much sleep after so all up before 7am now stuffed from huge fry up grin

weeblueberry Wed 25-Dec-13 09:42:26

Not arguing but bickering. But baby is asleep in my arms, he's off pottering through the house and has conveniently left me next to an opened box of Thorntons. So bugger it. grin

Loopylouu Wed 25-Dec-13 09:43:59

Pictish - it's ok I'm just ignoring him now as he's not happy with his presents that I spent a month buying.

Ds is happily sorting out his new tablet and the cat got a stocking and is being very cute with his new toys. Am hoping a bloody cat being greatful for what it's got will shame dh into being less of a cock.

beth27123 Wed 25-Dec-13 09:44:46

DSD1 (8) just asked who is cleverer, her or her younger sister....like Im going to fall for that one.

Loopylouu Wed 25-Dec-13 09:46:07

hb1976 - so sorry to hear about your grandad

YouTheCat Wed 25-Dec-13 09:47:22

Loopy, give him reason to be a grumpy, ungrateful, inconsiderate arse next Christmas by not getting him anything at all. Spend the money on some stuff for you in the sales, wrap it up and surprise yourself instead. x

ddubsgirl Wed 25-Dec-13 09:48:16

dog has destroyed the toy from his stocking lol cat helped himself to the pack of treats while I was filling up the toy that came with it with said treat angry and then decided the paper primark bag was more fun to play it grin

TheCrumpetQueen Wed 25-Dec-13 09:51:02

Loopy so sorry, I think your New Years resolution should be to kick his drunk selfish arse out. Hope your day gets better

Misspixietrix Wed 25-Dec-13 09:51:57

No but I got in to one yesterday with a self-entitled twat in the Cinemas. BIL got into one for standing up for an old lady who was being bullied by a cunt in a car park and didn't expect a 6ft bloke to come along and stick up for her grin. DM is trying. She's trying to order me around the kitchen. Nobody should ever do that with Miss Pixie. It always leads to trouble smile

Loopy, if I were you, I'd take all the ungrateful shit's presents back, get refunds, and spend the lot on yourself, in the sales. What an arse. I hope you, your DS, and your cat have a lovely rest of the day.

Only semi-arguement here was DD1(4) having an excitement induced tantrum, because her baby sister was given a present in a gift bag, whereas her multitude of presents were wrapped! She did calm herself down and apologise to everyone, including DD2, so I'm actually feeling quite proud of her.

Tomorrow should yield more results though, as we're visiting family, and my DSis and I always seem to manage to fit a blazing row in somewhere! fgrin

Just with DP who wouldn't get out of bed. But alls well now. He's in the shower, I'm just out of it and we will all be ready for DD1 getting home from her dads.

HellonHeels Wed 25-Dec-13 10:06:59

thanks to everyone having a less than good Christmas morning.

No arguments here, other than the cats shouting at me for their favourite biscuits. DH still asleep, I've just put some washing on! Going out on my bike for a quick spin in a minute - lovely and sunny here.

Happy Christmas everyone X

Chippednailvarnish Wed 25-Dec-13 10:13:29

Spent 10 may mins in the bathroom crying after not so 'D'H took DS downstairs to see what Santa had brought him, without me and DD. Its probably the last year DS will believe in Santa.

Apparently that's what I told him to do...

CoffeeQueen187 Wed 25-Dec-13 10:15:07

Yep, had an argument with my 7yo DS because he didn't get an xbox for Xmas.

Apparently I'm the worst mum in the world and he hates Santa grin

He'll get over it soon.... I hope confused

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Wed 25-Dec-13 10:15:22

No arguments here but have told dd2 to calm down a bit. She was super-excited opening her presents, tore the paper off at a rate of knots, chucked the present on the sofa without hardly looking at it and moved on to the next. Then complained that dd1 had more presents than her when dd1 was still opening her own. All fine now.

Merry Christmas! fgrin

BinkieWoo Wed 25-Dec-13 10:15:43

No arguments here but DSis has brought her dog here after only letting us know a couple of days ago and despite assuring us he's housetrained and will be kept by her side all day I've just gone upstairs to find a steaming turd and puddle of wee all over my bed. Nice sad

Papyrus02 Wed 25-Dec-13 10:18:03

DH and I argued last night. His mum came over yesterday with lots of presents for the DD's and I got cross because she doesn't have a lot of cash and most of it is bought on credit. Which means she'll be in debt later this year/ next year and we will have to bail her out. As we have had to do in the past ( to the tune of quite a lot of money). DH says it's her choice but it pisses me off.

He was annoyed at me because apparently I'm off with his mum and it's very noticeable - I was off, but that was after she announced her upcoming trip to Sri Lanka.... Sigh.

It nearly escalated to a major row. But we have said we will talk about it after Xmas.

ephemeralfairy Wed 25-Dec-13 10:19:14

FFS now DP has gone back to bed.... Roll on tonight when we can go to friends down the road and I can drink myself daft and the pressure will be off me to make sure everyone is having A Good Time.smile

TheBrotherHoodOfSteel Wed 25-Dec-13 10:23:28

No but if my husband doesn't stop playing marvel superheroes that I stupidly got him for Christmas I am going to murder him! We have guests due here in an hour and my mum doesn't look too pleased to be watching him take over the tv. I'm bored of Christmas songs so have put power ballads on instead wink
Merry Christmas everyone!!! grin

blahe Wed 25-Dec-13 10:26:36

Binkiewoon - I would be bloody furious. Have they cleaned it up and promised new bedding/mattress?

200Cigarettes Wed 25-Dec-13 10:35:11

No arguments but mother and sister aren't talking to me so no card presents or phone call, not even to the children.

Misspixietrix Wed 25-Dec-13 10:39:37

BinkieWoon shock hope you're making her clean it up and its been thrown in the yard.

Euphemia Wed 25-Dec-13 10:42:13

I'm just about ready to lamp DH for being a grump. Bacon rolls are making me feel better.

As predicted, MIL sent DD (11) a scarf she's knitted which is a foot long i.e. only fit for a dolly.

BIL and SIL have bought MIL a computer (<facepalm>) and are asking for my email address. No. Fucking. Way.

peacefuleasyfeeling Wed 25-Dec-13 10:47:24

Loopy, my heart goes out to you, how utterly bloody miserable sad. His loss, you clearly know how to create a lovely Christmas, and I hope you do get to enjoy yourself in spite of him. And congratulations on your pregnancy!

No arguments yet. But there is a definite iciness between DH and I, his pressie to me was 5lb of shortbread and a hysterectomy done privately. (I don't need one, I just complained about the 'curse')

Euphemia Wed 25-Dec-13 10:50:05

5lb of shortbread and a hysterectomy

Binky, you win Christmas! fshock

Thank you! should I be worried at the fact he is sharpening the knives?

FalalalalalalaFiggy Wed 25-Dec-13 10:53:15

Oh god my 40yr old sil is now throwing a wobbly because her 94yo GF has only given her a cheque for £25 this year not the usual £50.......she is of course minted and doesnt even need it angry

Euphemia Wed 25-Dec-13 10:59:02

Binky Is he a trained gynaecology surgeon? confused

How was the private hysterectomy presented to you?

No he works in the water industry, I think he's confused about 'water works'.

The presentation of this wonderful gift was, he snuggled closely to me on the sofa (after the biscuit presentation) placed his mouth near my ear, at this point I'm thinking Oh yes I get my present later how early can I get the kids to bed. He then whispers 'Your other present is I will pay for you to get your lady bits sorted out', 'Hey what? erm what do you mean?' his reply was 'You know, your lady bits' I'm thinking what labia trimming? Fix the hymen?, 'You know your bits, so you don't have the hassle every month'

I politely declined the offer, had a mouth full of tea and left the room before I decked him.

YouTheCat Wed 25-Dec-13 12:34:48

That is the most outrageous thing I ever heard! grin

I'd reciprocate with a vasectomy done with two bricks. wink

rumbleinthrjungle Wed 25-Dec-13 12:48:59

No rows, but it's only me and mother this year and mother has gone into her Cooking Frenzy (was at it before I even got up this morning) preparing for tomorrow when the daughter who has produced children is coming home, and is buried in saucepans, clouds of steam, hot ovens and washing up. She will do this ALL morning, then wash it all up, and then sleep all afternoon because she's exhausted. I think she's enjoying herself, it's hard to tell. Mostly what she's talking about is tomorrow, which is clearly what she's thinking of as 'proper Christmas'. In previous years we've plotted to prevent her doing this because you just can't have any kind of day with her or get her to do anything else once she's hit the zone, but if this is what makes her happy at Christmas so be it..... I tried to cook here, I've tried helping, she isn't having any.

I sat with her as long as I could in the kitchen but have a heart condition so can't stay upright more than a couple of hours. At 11.30 I got to the point of feeling unwell enough to have to stop, and she's not going to stop cooking come hell or high water, so rather than lay alone in her living room have come home and turned to the internet to sulk in peace :P

parabelle Wed 25-Dec-13 13:19:28

So glad it's not just me. I'm currently upstairs so I don't have to deal with over-excited five year old being a little so-and-so and dh pandering to her every whim and then when I politely requested he stop butting in and let me deal with her behaviour he walked out. only to the local shops to buy washing up liquid but even so. Dd2 is plugged into her headphones ignoring us all. Don't blame her. Oh and yet again he bought me some sodding hotel chocolat chocs which I don't like. it's all going a bit shit this Christmas. Seriously thinking of moving out and having Christmas alone next year.

MajesticWhine Wed 25-Dec-13 13:22:19

No arguments yet, but Mil a bit frosty when I asked if we needed another dessert and suggested I could whip up a mousse (she is hosting).

Belini Wed 25-Dec-13 13:25:47

I'm about to have an argument with my neighbours! My whole flat is vibrating with the sound of their new bass speaker. My 2 year old DTs are crying because of the noise confused

DailyMailGail Wed 25-Dec-13 13:39:59

I'm just about to batter the MIL to death with my laptop. She's been whittering on for (checks watch) 3 hours now. It's like having tinnitus.

Oh, and playing christmas songs on her iPad at full volume because she's too fucking stupid to work out how to turn the sound down.

ChristmasDayIsAGoodDay Wed 25-Dec-13 14:06:04

No arguments as such, although that's only because dh never rises to his dm's pathetic attempts at starting one. For eg, she sent him a text last night, asking him why he washes her hands after handling her dog, since she doesn't feel the need to wash her hands after stroking our rabbits! hmm ? That offends her apparently.

I tell you what we must be pretty frigging perfect if that's the most offensive thing that we do!

wontletmesignin Wed 25-Dec-13 14:10:18

Things have gone along surprisingly smoothly hete today.
First christmas without the knobhead and its been fantastic!

We have all been very relaxed. Im dancing away to jason derulo while cooking dinner.

Looking forward to my bed tonight though! Yawn..

wontletmesignin Wed 25-Dec-13 14:11:13

dailymailgail that made me chuckle. Oh i feel for you lol

MatryoshkaDoll Wed 25-Dec-13 15:55:23

DSD has been acting like a bit of a spoilt. Literal eye rolls and throwing to one side of some presents.

"Hmmm I'm not really into that."

"I don't want that one."

ouryve Wed 25-Dec-13 16:20:23

Binky fshock

BinkieWoo Wed 25-Dec-13 19:22:53

Haha yes they have been washing things all day in the machine and also the bathtub as there are no laundrettes etc open today to sort the duvet out!

The dog also ate dd's breakfast but luckily we had loads more so we could make some extra for her smile
