They Boyfriend and I spend a fair amount of time with his parents. We have dinner with them several nights a week. (Boyfriend’s mum does all my washing and ironing, bless her cotton socks. How could I not repay that by cooking a few meals here and there!)

This week Boyfriend’s sister has been visiting. I am getting this awkward feeling. Let me try to describe why – here’s a few conversations from the past few days:

Boyfriend’s sister: Mum, do you have a large frypan I can do toasted sandwiches in?

Boyfriend’s Mum: No, but 12 has a really good one, you’ll have to ask her if she can use it.

Hmm. Could be worse. But it keeps going.

Boyfriend’s sister: I need a knife, where are the sharp ones?

Boyfriend’s Mum: Oh, 12 bought me a lovely knife block, you can use those.

OK , I started feeling VERY intrusive by now.

Boyfriend’s sister: Where are the placemats?

Boyfriend’s Mum: Just ask 12, she’ll show you where everything is.

    That’s a little strange.

  2. Jennifer Says:

    She does your laundry? What a woman. It sounds like a fair trade to me. Your culinary skills have always impressed me (through the screen, obviously)

  3. Brett Says:

    I do so love reading your blog.

  4. Frank Says:

    Heh, how old is this sister?

    I realise that sounds bad…I mean it strictly out of curiosity and not in any perverted manner!

    WT, isn’t it reassuring when you find other people are just as strange as your own family. Or at least a little strange, nobody could top my family.
    Jenn: Yep, she is a gem even though she has this wierd obsession with oroning things that just don’t need ironing. We have managed to wean her off ironing underpants now though.
    Brett: Thanks. 🙂
    Frank: Sister Out-Law is just a few years (maybe 3?) older than The Boyfriend. Who is 3 years older than me. AND WE ALL KNOW I’M 12! hehe. plus the rest.
