This might be too diff to explain but will try. My DD isn’t very sociable. She particularly dislikes the enforced sociability of her parents in law. She has no children btw. They have invited her and me to a birthday lunch in a few weeks. At a local restaurant, no big deal. Her husband (their son) is awAy that weekend therefore DD suggests that we go out for the day to the seaside to avoid going. I think this is a bit mean. And to complicate things we do go to the seaside once a year on Mother’s day, which is s couple of weeks later....
Btw the dogs love the seaside and I am not up to driving the distance there and back in a day anymore. Do you think I am making s fuss being bothered?
