AIBU to tell DH I’ve decided not to buy cheese and biscuits this year

Because there is always so much food around at Christmas ( thanks to MiLs very generous Christmas and Boxing Day spreads which provide us with leftovers for days and we always end up stuffing ourselves) only to weaken going past all the lovely cheeses in the supermarket and end up having a shelf full of cheese in the fridge?

I wish I could help myself, I KNOW that we will all eat far too much over the Christmas period and at some point we will look at each other and agree we shouldn’t have bought the cheese and biscuits. I manage to survive on just cheddar the rest of the year so why do I feel an uncontrollable need to have at least five different cheeses in the fridge at a time when we also have the most food, cake and nibbles around?

Cheese though

You must buy the cheeses, it's a legal requirement for Christmas

Is this a cryptic way of asking for a divorce?

It's Christmas. It's all about the (baby) cheeses..

Yabu. That's what the cheese shelf is for.

You may as well cancel Christmas if you don’t buy any cheese fshock

Buy one small block of one fancy cheese and a small pack of biscuits. Tell yourself that if you feel a desperate need for more then you'll pop out to the shops. You know the need won't strike on one of the shops closed days so you're fine.

There are soooo many other food items I’d do withought before I gave up my Christmas cheese board.

Doyoumind Tue 18-Dec-18 19:00:12

shock YABVVU. Christmas is cheese.

I’m sorry what? I thought I read that you don’t need to buy cheese but that can’t be right surely?

Well I don’t think either of us would be able to use cheese as an example of unreasonable behaviour, less DH ate it all ( like he eats all my Double Deckers - but that’s another thread!)

YABU...We live on cheese in those days between Christmas and New Year when the Christmas Day food has gone over...cheese lasts

Junkmail Tue 18-Dec-18 19:01:39

How could one ever have too much cheese???? YABVVU

I’m just surprised you manage on cheddar the rest of the year round. I haven’t done the Christmas shop yet, but there’s cheddar, feta, stilton, halloumi and cream cheese in my fridge. And I finished off some brie earlier.

uncheesenable behaviour do you mean?

This is a piss take surely. Who doesn't buy cheese at Christmas?

HRTpatch Tue 18-Dec-18 19:04:45
