Is that rude?

Usually stay for a drink and chat, but feeling ill today, looooong day at work and I need to get some stuff done in the house, and pick up a parcel and open the wine asap!

MIL looked a bit put out last time I scooped up child, thanked her and then left

Oh yeah - and I've also got the traffic to contend with sad

15 minutes for a cup of coffee and a quick chat wouldn't hurt would it,she has done you a favour. smile

Hopefully MIL will understand if you explained you've had the day from hell and need to get away quickly but promise a longer stay/chat next time and do actually follow through with that

You could say 'i would stay but.....'

can't you?

Just say you're not feeling well and that is why you can't stay. but will stay longer next time.

Let her know in advance you're really not feeling well and could she do you a huge favour and have x ready to go. Will at least give them warning what is going on?
