He's just been on the phone to a niece from abroad, who's at boarding school here (sixth form) which happens to be in the same city where a dd lives.
Poor niece is not feeling well at all - very bad cold getting worse, high temp, just waiting to see a GP at school.
We (as official guardians here) are unfortunately away for a week from tomorrow, and Dh has just suggested that she could go and stay at dd's - and dd has had to go away for last minute emergency work last night, for a week - and son in law is left with full time work plus a just 4 and a still only 2 to see to, get up, dress, take to nursery/pre school, pick up again, feed, bath, put to bed, etc.
The last thing SiL needs is anyone sick passing on bugs to him and the Gdcs!!! Let alone being at all responsible for looking after her.
Can't believe dh could be so utterly stupid and thoughtless!
I very much doubt they'd let her go anyway, even though they know she's stayed there before (she does enjoy staying there) - I'm sure they will look after her very well at school.
He really does take the biscuit sometimes!
