Today we did the shopping, and went to the library, and saw the movie The Boxtrolls - which we all enjoyed.

Later we were halfway through dinner (not expecting Tim home for a while, this week has included home-times of 10:30pm, 1:30am and 9:30pm) when my father-in-law and his partner turned up on the doorstep. I had known they were visiting this weekend but I had assumed maybe Saturday lunchtime, not Friday night! I hastily redistributed dinner for six instead of four people and notified Tim it was time to come home. It worked out ok, not the best situation for a planner like me but I adapted.

But now my house is full of political argument and table thumping and the same tirades against various things that I have heard so many times before. It is no longer my sanctuary. Two more days of this.


  1. Eeek! I'd probably run away from home if my inlaws showed up like that.

  2. You can do it!! Your in-laws sound kinda funny/quirky in a weird sort of way. Hm, in a way you could make a TV show about hah! Good luck!
