Re: dreading xmas because of my mean sister in law

HappySunshines suggestion good. It’s all very well pondering the reason why your SIL is a cow but you deserve respect and good manners. A variation on Happy Sunshine’s suggestion is Why would you say that? Good luck.

Re: teenage boy staying over with girlfriend

 We have a small house and when my daughter wanted to have her boyfriend stay over we said fine, as long as he's prepared to meet myself or your father stark naked on the landing because we've forgotten he's there.   He didn't stay.......

Re: Repair motheaten cashmere?

There is an Invisible Mending place on the Great Brompton road I think. They do amazing work but are quite rightly expensive. Put the shawl in the freezer to make sure the moth eggs are dead.

Re: Husband invited his dad on our family holiday without asking

You haven’t said if it’s hotel or self-catering. What would bother me is lack of privacy with another adult in the house if it’s self-catering. And you’ll end up doing all the work. Do you have an elderly relative of your own you can invite along to keep him company?

Re: Can't keep up with extravagant fortieth parties

They’ve invited you because the like you, presumably. If you’re conscious about your own financial situation and want to reciprocate do something different for your fortieth like having a massive afternoon tea and demanding everyone dress up in frocks and flannels. A friend of mine was in a similar ...

Horrible scam emails

I received one of these threatening emails showing that they had my name, my email and a password which I used many years ago and now I only use if I have to open an account to buy something.

Re: Unpleasant elderly neighbour - help please

If he wasn’t old and hadn’t fallen you wouldn’t have anything to do with him because he has an unpleasant personality. I’ve had dealings with a lot of old folk and some of them think because they are old they can say what they like and people let them get away with it. My own mother tried that one b...
