So all DPs cards were put up for us apart from mine, then the sauce for his birthday cake was thrown out when I had asked for it to be left.

mil is most disappointed that the internet was switched off as she was listening to a documentary (she's been taking up so much bandwidth the rest of us can't access it)
And she has 'washed' a load of plates and put them into the cupboard.

Is she just visiting?

Turning off the Internet sounds pretty petty. It's not the norm for ones persons use to prevent others from using the internet. If I was visiting someone I wouldn't assume my useage would cause problems for others. Why did you switch it off?

Card thing. Yes OK that would grate me. Was yours sitting with all the others before they got put up?

Sauce....... could be a misunderstanding.

I don't really get what you mean about the dishes. Are you saying she did a crap job on purpose then put them away?

Totally the norm for one persons net useage to affect everyone here. Joys of rural living.

When's she going home grin

Ok fair enough I forgot that everyone doesn't have it so great as I do in a major city. Maybe MIL is the same. TBH it would never cross my mind if I was visiting someone else. I still think switching it off seems petty tho.

I turned the internet off to reset it and forgot to switch it back on as I was called upon to make dinner for everyone and simply forgot and didn't get back round to turning it on.

She's been here a week but goes tomorrow I even missed bake off because she doesn't like it angry

Also said to her that the sauce for the cake today so not to do anything with it.
She always 'hand washes' stuff and puts it away and they are always dirty at home she always uses her dishwasher so I don't see why things need hand washed here.

Erm...it is your fucking house! If you want to watch tv then fucking watch it.

Nice one about turning the internet off though.

I'm not really getting it. I guess you don't like her. Why didn't you watch Bake-Off? It's your house. confused
