another week another argument with OH he’s determined to bring the kids to his mums tomorrow they’ve organised it behind my back he’s just said to me now I’m going to pop over my mums with the kids tomorrow.

I feel like I’m being controlling but then my mum hasn’t seen the kids either. What are others doing?

We haven't seen any family.

But I am meeting my mum one on one outdoors on Friday per the new guidelines, but not taking DS.

No, just dropping shopping off at a distance, quick shout and wave. Facetime for everything else.

Nope, cos I’m not a dick

Whitestick Tue 12-May-20 19:48:32

I'm not in England, but isn't that still against the English guidelines?

I don’t understand why he’s so eager his mum is still seeing her other grandkids they can bloody wait. I’ve also got a blood disorder so I’m in the vulnerable category. Every week I’m having to argue with him.

No, but I am meeting MIL for a socially distant walk on Friday with my 19 month old.

Lemonnhoney Tue 12-May-20 19:48:49

Yes I have seen family outside and will do tomorrow.

Isadora2007 Tue 12-May-20 19:48:58

Yep. Have been for weeks.

Dowser Tue 12-May-20 19:49:07

Well it’s pretty obvious that the people who have aren’t going to say so

Dowser Tue 12-May-20 19:49:47

Ah, two have owned up..and I’m the third

YerAWizardHarry Tue 12-May-20 19:50:35

It's my birthday on Friday and will likely be the first time I'll ever have spent with without my twin sister. Seriously thinking about breaking the rules but I know its for the best we don't meet up.

HollyBollyBooBoo Tue 12-May-20 19:50:33

Yep saw my Mum today in her garden. Stayed apart though.

Elouera Tue 12-May-20 19:52:12

NO! I even felt guilting going out twice in 1 day- the 2nd time being for a medical need, but not, we have stuck to the rules and not rushing out anywhere. There are still 4000 new cases A DAY, and 600+ deaths A DAY, so NO.

IsntThatYourThirdPlate Tue 12-May-20 19:52:17

All his family are breaking the rules And no one has got sick so he thinks it’s fine to go ahead.

Nope. The most we might do is drop some bits and pieces off to my DM and take DS to wave from the car. That's it though

P0lka Tue 12-May-20 19:53:10

Yes. They've all had it (test confirmed) so I don't see the harm in it, though we are staying apart etc.
