SuePurblybiltByElves Thu 18-Nov-10 11:03:21

Scarily, she won't be able to post anything anywhere without it being read and monitored sad. Maybe she'll buy a PAYG mobile and post from that smile

I'm thinking posts in the Christmas topic. WTF do you buy Her Majjers for Christmas? Do Bronnley make a bath cube big enough?

Ariesgirl Thu 18-Nov-10 11:18:37

My GFLI is such a monumental prick!

How do I avoid going theirs for Christmas? Christmas in the Highlands is so dull.

Nuttybear Thu 18-Nov-10 11:37:08

I think she'll post.... How do I deal with the snobby friends of my DH?
They upset me when they take the micky out of my old Mum. I think they are wrong anyway, why do they think it’s right to say ‘What’ instead of ‘Pardon’. How do I handle these bad mannered toffs?

BalloonSlayer Thu 18-Nov-10 11:48:20

DH is insisting that our children have fifty-six middle names. I think that's really naff and they'll get bullied at school. He says - not in the schools they'll go to. AIBU?

Skiing - are there any child friendly ski companies with a creche in klosters?

BalloonSlayer Thu 18-Nov-10 14:47:06

I love my MIL but she is DH's stepmother, and he thinks she is a man-grabbing beeatch. He keeps making little digs at her, like giving me his mother's engagement ring so "my mother can be part of things." His mother has been dead for 13 years FFS!

AIBU to worry that the ring might turn out to have a life of its own, and could against my will take control of my arm and cause me to punch DMIL in the chops?

sethstarkaddersmum Fri 19-Nov-10 09:10:30

frakkinup Fri 19-Nov-10 11:08:36

Often on here it refers to the well known author of a controversial parenting book.

But could be all of the above!

AdelaofBlois Fri 19-Nov-10 13:06:37

Relationships-Have just been proposed to. DH has money and says FIL will give him a job one day, but should I trust him? Until now he says he's a soldier, but doesn't seem to actually do anything.

Relationships: Am I the only one to find BIL much hotter than DH? Should I have an affair?

Career: Should I write a children's book if I manage to have children?

Education: When is too young to start planning DCs' career and schooling?

Education: This 'admissions process' thing, which ribbon do I have to cut exactly?
