FG, was little one's second birthday on Monday, we're having the cake tonight
TT, If it has wheels and an engine, I can say No all I want and he won't take a blind bit of notice - he probably would if it was one of our cars, but as neither of us has bank of Mum and Dad (OH's are no longer with us, mine are in Spain spending my inheritance!), he borrowed quite a bit of money from his sister, and he thinks if he doesn't fix the car, then her OH will want to go out and buy a new one, so will start pestering us for the money back, when he knows full well we haven't got it. He doesn't work (never really has), and is supported by OH's sister, which is one of the reasons why I don't have a very high opinion of him, he's one of those people that if you have a cold, he has flu, he tried to make out he had the same as I did, so I challenged him to go and get it diagnosed properly, the same things I had to go through, so we're still waiting for that. His philosophy is, if you can get someone else to do it, then that's OK by him. I don't think he's heard of self respect, he runs a mile if there's any graft to be done. They need a soakaway digging in their front because their land rover is making a mess of the front garden. His sister can't do it, because she has back problems, her OH won't do it as he's a waste of organs, I can't do it because he won't look after my little ones whilst I do the digging (yes, I know!), so it will have to be MY OH that does it. Some people seem quite happy sponging and commenting on those doing the hard work. heigh Ho, I'm sure Karma will come around and sort him out one day. Just hope I'm there when it does!!
