Today is the wedding of the daughter of the hubs' distant cousin-married-to-the-French-man.
Yesterday evening the hubs was telling his mother what he had planned to do. Leave the house earlier to send her to the hospital, because she had told the hubs yesterday while we were at my brother's that she wants to 'take care' of the FIL. But she quietly said she wants to attend the wedding instead. Full of lies this one. Anyway, she brought along 2 tops and asked for my opinion which to wear to the wedding.
When I asked the hubs what are the plans for tomorrow, since it's a work day and that she's 'afraid' to be alone, she says she has asked for her nephew to stay over and he will go to in the evening today and proceed to work the next day from her place. Fine.
So we attended the nice wedding lunch and we invited the 2 brothers and their family over since their mother was at our place. The youngest NIL played in K's playhouse and almost wrecked it while the older NIL showed how ill-disciplined and total lack of sportsmanship he has when I opened up the new box of table snooker for them to play. He sat on the floor for a good while throwing a hissy fit because he did not manage to enter any balls.
Anyhow, we went for dinner somewhere near the in-law's at the suggestion of the hubs. On the drive there, the MIL called her nephew who didn't answer the phone. And then she started complaining. So I told her to either call the house or the hubs' aunt. Perhaps the boy is sleeping? She finally called the house and managed to speak to the boy, who did not seem to have the idea that the deal was for him to stay overnight. So he went on to say he's got work tomorrow and asked if she would like to go over instead. I thought it was nice of him to offer because my 20 something self would not have thought beyond that. And then somebody got angry. When she put the phone down, I asked her if anyone had communicated to her that he was indeed going to spend the night at her place? And how exactly did she ask him? Aiyo, that young man has his own life please! And she goes to say because he wants to play games and usually does so till the wee hours in the morning.
So when we arrived at the coffee-shop, the youngest SIL, her son, K & I sat at a separate table from the rest because simply there wasn't any bigger table. So the hubs, the 2nd BIL with his family and the MIL were 'discussing'. The youngest BIL who left for soccer training after the wedding only joined us later. And when he did, we shooed him to that table and the 2nd SIL came to join ours instead. Leaving the 3 sons to deal with their mother.
The hubs had offered for her to stay over our place but will send her back home early tomorrow morning but she declined. I suspect it's because the hubs did not offer to turn on the air-con for her yesterday evening and she was half-angry about the truth I said about the so called arrangement she thinks she has with her nephew. She also rejected the 2nd BIL's offer to stay at theirs. So it concluded that she will stay over at the youngest BIL's place. Splendid planning on her part because the youngest SIL cooks for her son and the entire family sleeps in air-con comfort. Although also, the BIL leaves for soccer training during the later part of the day which means the MIL has shorter hours to pass out from an asthmatic attack, if any.
Such scheming, I cannot! But good anyway for me.
