Should i tell them not to mind him again?

Do you not want them to come?

Who knows...were you there? do you not want them to come? Are you out next weekend?

I'd simply say to DH that you're really looking forward to it and ask him what he's cooking.

I once had a 'moment' and invited neighbours over. Turned out they were lovely. They have moved away now and we're gutted.

Have them over - why not?

What whonicked said!

Nataleejah Sun 23-Feb-14 17:07:32

I'm cooking and they're welcome. Just DH should have been sober...

DejaVuAllOverAgain Sun 23-Feb-14 17:07:54

Just make sure he does all the work.

LiberalLibertine Sun 23-Feb-14 17:09:06

Why should he have been sober?

WhoNickedMyName Sun 23-Feb-14 17:10:51

Oooookkkkaaayyy... Well I'm probably being really dim but if you're happy to cook and they're welcome, then what's the problem?

Nataleejah Sun 23-Feb-14 17:12:28

Not if he does it again...

Nataleejah Sun 23-Feb-14 17:13:54

I really have no choice... Cannot uninvite them

FunkyBoldRibena Sun 23-Feb-14 17:16:43

You can uninvite them. You say 'my drunken husband invited you round and we are going out that night. Ha ha ha - he's a card isn't he?

Sorry I don't really understand what the problem is, unless they're really unpleasant people. We get on really well with our neighbours on both sides and occasionally socialize with them. You might enjoy yourselves!

If my dh had done something like this, he would be the one cooking or doing the uninviting. It certainly wouldn't be me, although neighbours to the left are lovely, I'm not a great cook.

If you don't want to do it get him to cancel or tell him he will have to cook. It's his problem, why bother yourself.

They're new. They moved in 2 days ago and i never even seen them. I HOPE it will be a nice time.

LiberalLibertine Sun 23-Feb-14 18:23:38

Right, no problem then?!

MothratheMighty Sun 23-Feb-14 18:29:14

I really don't understand the problem.
You have a week's notice
He can cook for them
You have no prior appointments.

We used to do this to each other all the time, invite friends and aquaintances and the like back for a drink or a meal. I once turned up with two Japanese students I'd met on a train and whom I'd invited back for a traditional English tea.

Does your DH know that you dislike this, even with notice? If it is something that really bothers you, then you need to make it clear to him. So clear that he'll remember even if drunk and excited.

FunkyBoldRibena Sun 23-Feb-14 18:42:21

So...what's the point of this thread?

ReadyToPopAndFresh Sun 23-Feb-14 18:45:37

I think the OP just doesn't really want to make friends with the neighbors. I'm a bit like that. They could be lovely, or they could ask you if you have a relationship with God, or if you're a fan of Nick Griffin. BUt it's always awkward when you've already had them over
