anyone remember how i almost begged MIl to help out at october half term as the six week holiday had been so bad, and sge refused and I got really down and davrois told me to pull my socks up........




so prepare yourself for me moaning about her during that holiday break

Fio, as a fellow-recipient of the "Could I care Less" MIL attitude, I am really pleased for you
Moan away!

We expect daily updates while she's there, you understand.

anniebear Fri 10-Jun-05 11:18:57

You know that she is going to now drive you up the wall .

Seriously - that is great.

Fio2 Fri 10-Jun-05 11:53:34

I am just thinking at least me and dh will be able to go out alone occasionally of a nightime when kids are in bed, as we never get to do that. God i love her now

Davros Fri 10-Jun-05 11:55:32

Oooh, I have turned into a French person Davrois, I like it
Did I tell you to pull yer socks up? Sorry Fio. I agree, she will now drive you mad, just make sure you get some free time out of it. She must have had a rethink? What do you reckon?

Fio2 Fri 10-Jun-05 12:04:45

yes Davrois, I was quite arsey with her months stopped ringing her almost and she had a young woman move over the road whose daughter had special needs and I think she realised that i most probably DID need help and wasnt just being melladramatic like my SIL has a habit of doing

Jimjams Fri 10-Jun-05 12:12:22

don't be fio. DH told his mum that she had to read some books on autism or we couldn't see her anymore. She did, and now visits are sooooo much better. She's even stopped going to bed in the afternoon!

Fio and Jimjams - I'm in a most pleasant way!

Lol at Davrois! Classy, very classy....

Davrois Fri 10-Jun-05 14:56:55

I AM classy!

Fio2 Fri 10-Jun-05 15:06:17

yeah of course, hehe. When are us common birds gonna meet up for a fag and pint then?

potty1 Fri 10-Jun-05 15:19:08

Fio - you're brave, couldn't put up with my MIL for 6 minutes never mind 6 weeks. She's just rung me for the upteenth time complaining about her fridge freezer. At least she's got electric in her kitchen, I haven't had any for a week and won't have for another 2.

And common? - you?!?

coppertop Fri 10-Jun-05 15:28:08

Davrois does indeed sound classy. Perhaps I should change my name to coppertoupe in her honour? You can all picture me as some mad little woman in a ginger wig - if you don't already, of course.

I look forward to the MIL updates during the holidays!

Fio2 Fri 10-Jun-05 15:30:49

potty you do know where I was born and bred dont you?

dinosaur Fri 10-Jun-05 15:52:26

LOL at Coppertoupe.

Davrois, anyone who used to booze with Shane McGowan must be absolutely oozing with class!

Marina Fri 10-Jun-05 17:16:33

or Coppertoque in a smart red hat.
We have a book on dinosaures...

coppertop Fri 10-Jun-05 18:54:21

Trust me to discover all these possible new names just as MN starts clamping down on changes.

Shane McGowan? Why haven't I heard this story before??

<waits for any juicy details>

TheRealMrsF Fri 10-Jun-05 20:29:41

That is soooo funny CT!!!

MrsF...could become MadammeRetourde

TheRealMrsF Fri 10-Jun-05 20:31:55

Or MadammeOublieux...depends on what translation u choose!!!

coppertop Fri 10-Jun-05 20:34:12

Or LaVraieMadameOublie-whatsit?

How come you always appear just as I'm logging on to MN? Stalker!

eidsvold Fri 10-Jun-05 22:09:28

that is fab Fio - and JJ - glad to hear improvements are on the way

InternationalGirl Fri 10-Jun-05 23:49:13

Every little bit counts Fio - baby steps...
LOL at ... Davrois... so European.

Davrois Sat 11-Jun-05 19:29:42

With my fancy new name I feel like a French tart..... I look like an English pudding
Ah yes, me misspent yoof. Its all true
I will now go back to being plain, boring old Davros before MN changes the rules (mind you, I'm missing Dr Who while I post this)
