Ask The Experts relationship, family, medical and pet problems resolved
QMy mum said she could no longer do Christmas, so for the past three years I’ve had my parents, my two brothers and sister and their families over. My older brother got divorced last year and brought his girlfriend to stay a few months ago. We made allowances for her being a bit quiet, so I was gobsmacked to receive an email from her afterwards saying I need to clean more, get new mattresses and make healthier meals. When I told my brother he went ballistic and said if we didn’t like it they wouldn’t come again. My mum is distraught but do I have to accept this?
Put your foot down and ask your brother and his girlfriend to host Christmas this year
