I got "around" this years ago, my place only has 2 bedrooms & one is my office & has been for years !
Some off them turned up once & had to pay out for Hotels ,never came again.

Unfortunately that doesn't work for us as the two I am referring to "only stay in 5 star hotels". Pity their manners are only 1 star rated! Comes to something when the children (aged 11 & 7) of one of our Hungarian friends have better manners than a couple in their 50s!

They had ordered linguine with prawns for the main dish and YEP he slurped up the pasta like the Tramp in L&TT. The slurping ,sucking and burping continued to the end. I wanted to scream. ED seems oblivious.God help their one yr old daughter.

Just say that you have other plans for those dates. It's easy if they live 3000 miles away, but a bit more tricky if they live 3 miles away. To quote the old saying, "just say no".

Erm.... Give 'em a #34 EP..... OH 'phones to say how much your both looking forward to seeing them, but mentions in passing you're both suffering from a virulent outbreak of head-lice. Raw scalps, itching and scratching.... You think it's lice but it might be a case of that new huge Andes-fleas, 'cos you see black things jumping between furniture. You're so happy they're coming & they can have the spare room/s & put-u-up for as long as they like....
Works every time

The help doesn't piss me off, but that someone needs it due to illness in one of the richest countries in the world does.

Consider contributing a bit if you can. He hasn't been on BE for a while but is facing severe medical challenges and expense. Older posters might remember him.

I was going to post the link in the 'What made you smile' thread as it made me smile seeing the post earlier and loving that, even after him being away from BE for so long, he's still part of the family and we can still support him and his wife.

We only have 1 bedroom and it doesn't stop people.

One day our parents will realise what bastards they all are for getting divorced. Now we have 4 sets of visitors instead of two.
