He is an abuser and will continue to be so while you stay with him.

Re: where to buy loo roll

Make your own. Same principle as nappy liners. If all this continues it will come to that - even for the stockpilers when they run out.

Re: Friendship status quo upset

They possibly feel the same way as you do. The alpha one’s way of operating is to take over. People go along with it for a while then get fed up. I’ve seen it many times with friendship groups. Just give it time, and make some other friends in the meantime.

Re: MIL stayed for 2 months over Christmas and is back in 5 months

My mother lived 300 miles away in this country. She came to stay once a year for two weeks. We spoke on the phone every week. It was quite enough. My MIL lived in Wales and would come for a week. My husband would deliver her and disappear for the duration ie no responsibility for taking her out/talk...

Re: Different mums and different budgets for class nights outs.

You’re organising it so either the suggestion already made or a drink in a pub? In my experience of successful ladies nights the food isn’t really important as what people want to do is talk. Fancy dining isn’t the purpose of the event, surely?

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.......

It is said we’re all only three salaries away from the streets. It could be you, there.

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: Wife sharing too much on social media

Invitation to burglars if people know you’re away. And those privacy things don’t always work.

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: Unauthorised Absence from School

My niece takes her boys out of state school in term time and happily pays the fine as the savings made make it well worth it.
