OK. My birthday last week, my ds3's second on the 27th.
parents in law divorced after he ran away with girly after 35 years.
Car failed MOT today, £200 cost.

So FIL texted Dh with 'won't see you for a while as I am too busy'- forgot my birthday, no mention of DS3. Who happens to be his namesake.
hasnt seen them since January after he left MIL, dont think fiancee likes us.

MIL phones. Your BIL is too broke to come to visit, either you come to us or no gift for DS3 and cake goes in bin (she's a confectioner).
BIL drives sports car and lives at home. Shares mortgage with her but thats it. We are BROKE as car / me studying / three kids / several months off work for DH with depression will do that to a families finances.

DH now showing signs of depression returning after conversation with MIL who told him he was a useless son who supported FIL more. As I saud, have seen FIL once since whole debarcle. MIL loads of times.
DH crying upstairs earlier, alright now but wont discuss it. he tried (a sympathy bid i think) to kill himslef last year, at the time she told him 'you got it easy, i have more problems than you'.

OK rant over. I am furious, upset and worried.
Bad enough they have systematically done this to Dh over the years, now kids getting use3d as pawns!

Shall I tell her that her bloody ganache is horrible anyway?

Tee hee!

I SO wish I had the courage! I did once cause Richard and Judy to ask her to go on a worst MIL ever show (No! Wasnt my idea! Spoke to them about something else but they phoned and asked whilst I was out and DH said yes)!!!! I was too nice though and said no to the whole thing.
Wish I had gone now.

I agree. I would cut off from them too.

I cant cut of. I have tried so many times but I end up feeling sorry for her and going back. I do that all the time, I even nearly bankrupted us driving 70 miles to a run a youth group rather than say no sorry, when I move I cant.

Anyone got a backbone they can lend me please?
