Clari - your OH definitely needs some training! What is he thinking? Birthday with ratty in-laws? I suggest you take him to yours for his next birthday and prime them to be on best bad behaviour. Alternatively, organise something you really want to do for his birthday that he may not necessarily enjoy and then explain why afterwards. Repeat till he learns.
My OH dragged me off to hs golf club yesterday for prize giving after a competition. He didn't win anything. Just wanted to be there and maybe meet a few people. All very well but he was waylaid, upon entering, by a very interesting Scot who has a French wife who doesn't speak English and an Irish couple who think the local French are racist because they won't talk to them. Not surprising as they don't speak French.... Doh!
Scottish chap told Lester about a "private" competition group in the club that was worth getting into and the way to do that was to go for lunch as it's all organised by chappy who runs the restaurant. I can cope with lunch but not the rest.
Starting early today. Painting a wall and window sill, painting furniture, cleaning house and then, finally, some planting in time for the rain they're promising. Only 1 or 2 mm but it's the thought that counts.
How is everyone today? Well I hope - or recovering if ill or injured.
