Good afternoon, I'm new to Gransnet and to forums generally but I would very much appreciate advice about a vexing matter that has just cropped up. Our sister-in-law recently sent us a text hinting that she wants to stay with us while she visits her new grandson who lives with our son and daughter-in-law nearby. We are rarely in touch with our in-laws and are not yet ready to open our doors to her and presumably her family when they want to visit the area. We expect that both son and daughter-in-law will browbeat us (a frequent occurrence) if we don't extend an invitation and we don't know how best to respond when they do. Your comments and advice will be welcome.
