My birthday is tomorrow but as it's DS's football final we were celebrating tonight (small get together) while he is at his dad's. Family invited my DP's as no contact with mine. Phonecall from Dp's mum and dad they can't come as dad is ill. Now SIL doesn't seem to be coming making excuses but not a definite no. Feel like cancelling as I don't have any close family I was really looking forward to seeing them

AIBU to be pissed off that they can't make the effort to visit when invited two weeks ago or am I being childish sad feeling a bit sorry for myself tbh

Who else will be there if PILs and SIL can't make it?

It might be a big birthday, but you're not a child, you know that sometimes people get ill. You can't control what they do, but perhaps you can control your reaction. Try to get over your disappointment and make the best of this.

Do you have other children?

Go out with DP for a meal?

Personally, I pray for this kind of thing to happen and it never does. I never get to do what I want on my birthday as family insist on visiting. Seems a bit rude to tell them not to come grin

It's was SIL and her partner and my DP's brother and wife who I don't particularly get along with is attending. I went to a lot of effort food drink etc and feel a bit let down. I'm always on hand for them. So there will be me my DP my BIL and his wife.

Bung all the food in the fridge/freezer and get dp to take you out somewhere nice and snazzy. Somewhere you'd never go with the kids.

Thanks testing, I just had my hopes raised for a nice get together. I haven't had many birthdays celebrated as a child or as an adult and I was excited (very childish of me I know)

Thanks DeanKoontz I am going to do just that!

Yes call it off and go out together to celebrate. You'll have more time to enjoy yourself and relax if you aren't cooking and entertaining on your own birthday.

Oh and Happy Birthday winecakeflowers
