My husband and I usually spend Christmas Day and Boxing Day with my daughter and her family, plus her mother-in-law, taking it in turns as to who does Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
This year, we have booked a restaurant for Christmas Day (first time ever). That left Boxing Day, which somehow fell to me. Not wanting to do a full-blown dinner, I had planned to do a 'Christmas Tea'.
No! That doesn't suit daughter, who wanted me to do chips and chicken nuggets for the kids. (Not my idea of Boxing Day!)
So I've given in, and now said that I will do a 'Christmas Dinner' (which the children will eat).
To be fair, Mother-in-law has offered to cook a turkey crown. Daughter will bring a desert for the children (they won't eat Christmas Pudding and Mince Pies.). Which leaves me just doing the veg.
But I still feel a bit resentful. Am I being unfair? (Reading this, I think perhaps I am!)
