Turn up to take MIL shopping and she presents this, she has bought this for herself from the charity shop....it's also pretty far from true!

Love it!!!!

I'd suggest your MIL has a good, tongue in cheek, sense of humour!!!!

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 01-Nov-14 18:00:31

Because she knows nobody else would buy it for her wink

Fluffyears Sat 01-Nov-14 18:02:35

No fairy she doesn't. Her behaviour is a full thread!

<snort>

That's fucking hilarious!

Hahaha

Every time she buys something she comes at presents it to me and I never know quite what to say. Latest is a full length fur coat and diarrhoea green cowboy boots which are falling apart. Don't want to say 'kill it with fire' to each item even though I feel like that but worry if I like them she'll find some replica for us. She's given us shitloads of tat.

even better is the fact that someone donated that to the charity shop in the first place! smile

Fluffyears Sat 01-Nov-14 18:11:22

Ha ha owl yeah I kinda wonder where it can't from and in what circumstances..,,she's now commenting on how much she'd like to go to new york but sighs 'I can't go alone' she knows we have booked up! Eh yeah keep dreaming dear!

Fairyfellowsmasterstroke Sat 01-Nov-14 18:11:35

OP- When she's not looking attach a post-it note just above the wording on the tat award with the words "Definately not...."

Fluffyears Sat 01-Nov-14 18:12:28

Fairy I'm getting the sharpie now [evil laugh]!

MrsTerrorPratchett Sat 01-Nov-14 18:14:16

I can just imagine the AIBU thread. "AIBU to donate a hideous statuette my awful DIL got me for Mother's Day?"

Could you mould tiny crossed fingers out of gold Fimo?

Fluffyears Sat 01-Nov-14 18:16:52

Wonder if the original gifter wonders where it is. Or was it a marriage breakup and MIL chucked it along with all the pictures of previous sil/dil

Fluffyears, we have booked a cruise qnd all we are getting is " I'd loooove to go on a cruise" from MiL. I told her we walked for miles sightseeing and she said "But you can just stay on the boat if you want" I was proud of DH when he told her how nice it was that it would be just the 2 of us unlike many holidays with DC and evev DGC.

I'm trying to think why there is a market for something like that. Is it filled with explosive?

BigRedBall Sat 01-Nov-14 19:33:55

Make sure you know how to spell "definitely" correctly before you get sharpie happy.

Fluffyears Sat 01-Nov-14 19:34:19

Soppycay it will only happen over my cold corpse! Thankfully my dp is similar. In fact we're not married so she's no-ones official mil!

Rubbish robot reading MN i cannot think why there is a market for this.

My boyfriend bought me one of these as my gift from his trip to LA when we first got together (it does say worlds best girlfriend).

My face looked like this hmm .

Thebodynowchillingsothere Sat 01-Nov-14 19:37:24

Hilarious grin

Fairyfellowsmasterstroke Sat 01-Nov-14 19:47:17

OP - I have a present for you open here

whitecampion Sat 01-Nov-14 19:59:05

I actually snorted my wine I laughed so much at this thread!

Fluffyears Sat 01-Nov-14 20:38:12

Fairy I need that to counteract this heinous crime!! At least it wasn't one of her church friends home made shite Christmas decorations. Think a lump of badly varnished wood with two baubles glued on top, I actually said 'oh you keep it here'.

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Sat 01-Nov-14 21:39:30

I want one of these. Of course, DH will have to get me one every year. Or I could just buy it myself!

RubbishRobotFromTheDawnOfTime Sat 01-Nov-14 21:42:44

The place that sells those also does life-size cardboard cutouts. Like this.

Fluffyears Sat 01-Nov-14 22:06:31

Do they have a life size Hugh jackman grin I love him.wife of year is a bit of fun but she bought this fir herself and I imagine is telling people I got her it hmm
