Thanks for the advice on dealing with my boyfriend's mum. She made another fb comment today and James actually saw it and thought it was out of order.
I was just saying that much as dropping down to working 4 days a week has been good for my mental health, financially it's very difficult. A close friend of mine made a joke about not to worry, just a couple less beers a week and then she thought this was serious and made quite a patronising comment about how drinking less is worth it to save money & how it will also help my mental health.
I don't know quite how it turned in to a debate about my drinking habits (I actually don't drink in th week at all), I'm just surprised she didn't comment on how it'll improve my figure too.
I really wonder what the hell she thinks I get up to? I'm quite convinced that she thinks money is tight because I spend it on all my booze and cakes.
Time to deploy my tactful conversation I guess.
It's was really bad timing as well because I've had an amazing weekend in London with my mum, watching shows, crying at West Side Story and just getting chance to hang out. It's been the closest thing I've had to a holiday away in 3 years.
I had a really tough morning this morning thanks to yet another psych assessment & I was just feeling pretty vulnerable as it was. I don't think she realises that actually I'm the person paying most of the household bills and keeping our finances going. I do pretty much all the cooking and if I have a drink at the weekend, fuck it. I've earned it.
Being single at least didn't come with in laws. I love James but, man, his mum is wearing me down at the moment.

I have no experience with in-laws so can't really think of the best way of approaching the matter and know my knee-jerk reaction is nowhere close to what Real Life Timid Nadia would do. I would be bloody infuriated by it though. Also:

I have to admit, this made me laugh out loud.

Feel better chicky xox
