Sil called earlier to thank us for presents for Xmas, late I know but they were away over Xmas so didn't mind. But the way she said it upset me. She said ' thanks for our presents, we know your struggling so am grateful!' WTF not sure what she meant as we are not struggling money wise confused we have 3 kids including twins if that's what she meant but I still felt strange about what she said.

I think you're being a bit over-sensitive to be honest.

Perhaps your DH has said something to her about how busy you've been with the kids or has casually said something about how expensive Christmas is with three kids, and she's taken it to mean more than it did.

Either way it doesn't sound remotely bitchy or rude; I wouldn't worry about it.

Unless there's passive aggressive history going on then maybe she just got her wires crossed re; 'struggling'?

I think you are being abit over-sensitive too.

Don't know of there is a back story, but if not, you are probably over thinking it

Maybe she meant struggling for time?
