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.
