Sometimes Things Are Just Plain Weird


Yesterday I received a call from my MIL. I couldn't find the handset so I couldn't answer the phone. I listened to the message. And then re-listened. And then I listened again just to make sure I'd heard correctly. Then once more just for a bit of clarity.

My MIL invited myself and the smalls over to her house. For afternoon tea. She wasn't going to be there - she was at work. No one was going to be there. But she thought I might like to visit her dog.

Shazamm! I just had the weirdest experience ever this weekend with my MIL and she is always weird (and twisted and a little evil).
I hope you er, enjoy the afternoon tea...

Aha.

On a slightly related note, received a call tonight informing me the inlaws have booked a ticket in our direction. Connipting all over the place, I am. Telling myself that four weeks is easy peasy compared to the eight weeks last time.

nb. Realising still require urgent therapy from 'last time'.

Looking at the picture it is good to see that at least the dog dressed up for your visit.

Great way to keep in touch.

I had to read that a few times to make sure I understood. I am guessing you didn't go visit the dog.
