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 ...

Re: Rights for "common law wife"

I could tell you a long and convoluted story about my idiot sister-in-law whose partner died suddenly and left her in the most appalling position. My husband, her brother, has been able to help her but she has minimal support from the rest of her siblings who think she was stupid for not ensuring he...

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. But someone had somehow managed to find these details. I showed it to a police person friend as I felt they ...

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...

Re: Claimsing share of exe’s pension

Thanks for your suggestions. Someone who has done it popped up and it’s quite straightforward it seems. Go to the provider with divorce papers showing agreement. It’s a local authority pension . She can’t afford a lawyer. It’s tale of a woman being brought up by her idiot mother to think someone els...

Claimsing share of exe’s pension

Does anyone know the process? My sister in law is in a very difficult situation, needs to claim her entitlement but is abroad and we’d like to avoid thrashing about trying to find out what to do from the internet etc.

Re: SW11 mugged at knifepoint in front of our 3 kids

If the likes of Amazon, Boots and Starbucks paid proper taxes and the government stopped pandering to their pals we could afford a proper police force.
