I have just reluctantly spent a weekend with my DH's family.
Their life revolves round money and how to save it. I don't want to know how much they saved on every part of their self built new riverside house which admittedly is beautiful. Or hear about how they are always upgraded on any holiday for no extra money, or how they got the best waiter or the top hospital consultant.
When we were choosing to go out for the day their was consternation at the price of the entry fee, they were worried they would have to pay for us. I said 'Don't worry we will pay for ourselves' this calmed things down.
When my BinL and I shared the newspaper I gave him the first few pages he immediately started reading from the back of the paper. I assumed he was reading the Sport, silly me it was the stocks and shares.
I did have one very tiny victory which must be irking them now. Their fabulous riverside house with a landscaped garden down to the river is worth about the same as our end of terrace modest home in the Thames Valley.
