We've been invited to BIL's birthday celebrations at the weekend.

SIL called "not doing food, just "nibbly bits", and not getting any booze in either".

This is after she asked us to chip in towards his present that she couldn't afford to buy him.

Can't wait.

Wow, what a generous hostess. I assume you'll be clearing up after too !

They way it is is this.....

they are on pretty much the same budget as us, we've all got mortgages, they're always at the malls shopping, he's got a motorbike, they're always eating out. Money is not the issue here.

The fact is she's lazy. She will happily turn up at mine when I invite them over - empty-handed, not even a bottle of wine - eat everything I provide and leave without so much as taking her glass in from the garden.

I offered to help months back if she was having a bash for his birthday. She just can't be bothered. I'd be embarrassed.

DH doesn't want to go and it's his brother. Why invite people if you don't want to be a hostess? And I don't mean a la carte - burgers onthe BBQ and salads are cheap.

But to ring and invite someone but say by the way, no food and no drinks.... um????
