To think you check before buying all the food in that people are coming?!

My MIL, who reigns supreme at Christmas, has phoned us twice in quick succession this evening telling us we're to go to hers for a buffet tomorrow.

We were there on Christmas Day. She only lives 10 miles away and we see her regularly. As in weekly.

When dh said we had plans for tomorrow - stuff on in the day and we want to spend some time as our family - she got annoyed because she's already bought the food in!

When we said we'd go on Christmas Day, which we only agreed to because she made such a fuss of us cooking for her as was the original plan, dh said we wouldn't be going on NYE.

Now she's annoyed. And making us feel bad.

Tough tits.

She and Fil (can I presume there is a Fil?) should have listened to what you said about Xmas and should listen to you now.

"Oh dear, we did make it clear twice" should suffice. Don't put a 'sorry' in there. And don't feel bad - life is too short!

It's not your problem. If she bought the food before asking you, she's an idiot.

Your DH just needs to tell that he's sorry she bought the food, but she should have checked with you first and you can't change your plans now. Hopefully she'll learn her lesson.

No way. You do what she demands this time it will be the same every time she wants it her way.

Enjoy your evening as you always planned OP.
