So BIL has said that mum s going to him on Xmas eve - this means she wont see Joshy open his stocking at 4am on xmas day

Should I text him and tell him its not on?

Well! That is just not on. It is only MARCH fer gossake!

How dare you type in a variant of that C word in MARCH, you bar steward, you!

YABU, you should have sorted this months ago. To deal with it this last minute just isn't on angry

Never too soon to get organised where mothers are concerned. I'll be seeing mine this w/e & expect to have the Christmas Venue question put to me. We plan to be away without her, as it happens - my bro is already primed to ask her to join in with going to his ILs - she will huff & fuss & be snooty about the whole thing & might even stay at home by herself just to make some sort of "poor me" point. Sigh.

Will no one think of the sprouts?! Sprouts first, then sort out who is going where and when.

Mine have been on for two weeks already <smug>.

Why is your BIL wanting your mother for xmas?

YABU to call your dog Joshy though

MammaTJ Mon 31-Mar-14 17:51:43

Is BIL planning on fattening her up ready?

Better hurry up, there isn't much time!

I know this is supposed to be 'light hearted' but ffs cant you all just stop and think of those without BIL to moan about this Christmas and perhaps you should be thankful you have a 4am at all, let alone a sock!

selfish fuckers!

I'd send Joshy over to BIL's on Christmas Eve.

MIL can enjoy the 4am slot and you can have a lie in.

Tell Joshy Christmas is on the 26th - he's a kid, they are easy to lie to.

BiL makesJoshy wait until 4am shock that's horrific, I think you should report him

I'd better get down the shops NOW or they will be sold out of turkeys before you know it !

I can't believe how behind you all are, my tree has been up since the weekend!
