I'm a first time poster but long time lurker on Gransnet. After being a lover of hosting Christmas as home, this year has been the final straw. My partner's daughter is in her mid 30s with a teenager and a 9 Yr old and she acts like a spoilt teen. They came, empty handed on public transport on Christmas eve, moaning as she refused to drive due to not liking driving an unfamiliar route (she has always been driven to our house by someone else) . On Christmas Day, I get up at 7.30 with the step GC to open their presents. She didn't come downstairs until 3pm and even then she hadn't bothered to get dressed. We eat quite late - 4pm, we were in the midst of cooking and she asks her Dad to make her a cup of tea and has a go when he tells her off. She didn't attempt to help to clear up after dinner. Sat on the sofa, mostly on her phone but happy and chatty until I went to bed. They ate late night leftovers and I cleaned up the mess this morning. Boxing Day, spent the day in bed again with her teenage daughter, youngest was downstairs with us. The teenager came down for snacks but they both stayed in bed until we said dinner was ready - 5pm They came down to eat, happy as Larry and they are back upstairs to watch a film. I'm just so over it, I know it's different with step children(adults) but this is just so bad.
