My in-laws are coming to us AGAIN for xmas lunch. They have come to us every year for the past 5 years. My brother-in-law and his family also come to us and I think it's about time we either went to the in-laws or to my brother-in-laws. The problem is every time I mention this to my DH he says that they should come to us because we have the room. That's fair enough but its not him who has to do all the cooking and cleaning. Him and his brother go to the pub at lunchtime and leave me too it. The mother-in-law and brother-in-laws wife simply stay in the living room drinking all our sherry and leave me to do all the work. Any suggestions on how to put this madness to an end (without ruining everyone's xmas)?

Make a list of everything that has to be done, and a list of adults. Match them up.

Send the combined list to everyone with the time at which you will be serving up so they know when they have to have their bit ready for.

Then you can all go to the pub.
