Ok people, I know a couple of you already know the um.. "situation" with my in laws.... but I just wanted to ask your opinion on this. I was going to post it when it happened but was too mad to even talk about it...now I am breathing again so I'll tell ya! Ok, we've been married for a year and a half now and moved away from my family and are living near Hubbys..anyway, its my Mother in Law that is doing my head in....every time she comes round she's looking round the house with a grimace on her face, she offers to wash up clean the windows etc etc...making me feel like a total idiot.. you know...anyhooo, we went on holiday over Christmas, and when we got back, I found that my furniture had been re-arranged, (lounge and kitchen) my carpets had been cleaned, she'd gone through my entire washing pile, washed and ironed EVERYTHING, stripped washed irioned and re-made OUR bed, cleared out under the bed and under all our cabinets,and worse of all, she had been through my enire wardrobe and arranged my clothes, been through all my drawers and folded everything - AND my underwear draw! She had even separated my socks, bras, knickers, tights ...everything! and put them in all in different drawer! Now this made me SOOOOOOO MAD you wouldn't believe... Im very private and I feel she totally invaded my space, I mean c'mon...my underwear?!!! I guess I should be grateful for her help, but it makes me feel like a 5 year old who can't keep her room tidy ya know.... it's really insulting to me to have my M-I-L come and clean the house when I'd already done it! Any comments? Am I allowed to be angry? Bare in mind we have already told her a hundred times I don't want her to do it (help with washing/ironing etc)....so she goes and does it while Im on holiday....
