Next month my OH reaches a milestone birthday of 50.He has grand ideas of what he wants for his birthday.It started off a year or so back with him wanting to go on an all inclusive holiday for a week and the family coming too.Then when he realised holidays are off the agenda he wanted John Otway to come and play at our house.( i didn't even bother to look into the price of that one,)
Now as of last night for someone who didn't want a party he wants a gathering at our house.Well he go to 20 people without us and my children and partners.This is all well and good and I'm not a kill joy(well maybe i am)
but even with everyone bringing a bottle it would cost at least £150 to cater and provide rest of drinks.
If this was the only thing going on that wouldn't be too bad but the week before is fathers day,we are going away to a hotel which was paid for by DD .We still need to spend money on food and fuel. The week after is DGD's birthday and her last weekend with us before leaving for Scotland.DS wants us all to go away for a few days to celebrate her birthday.
So I'm in a pickle lots going through my mind,i cant see any of this fitting in with wanting to pay off my debts this year.DD (youngest) says we have to do something special for her dad to mark his birthday and all this doesn't even include going in with her to get the present.
DD came down this morning and said when she woke it felt like she was on holiday.I said that's the only way i get a holiday is in my dreams and was accused of being negative...
What should i do?
