In October my brother and his girlfriend invited me, hubby and 2 children to their for Christmas day. They live 60 miles away so would be out for the day so asked hubby if he fancied spending Christmas at my brothers and he said yeah and it would be nice.
A couple of weeks later we sold our car (had been planning to sell it for a while) so rang my brother to say we wouldnt be able to make it for Christmas. He was gutted as would have been the first Christmas we had all spent together as a family in 15 years.
I decided that with my Christmas money i got from my grandad to organise renting a car to go. I asked him about this and he got in a mood saying he would be bored there and didnt want to go. When i questioned him about it and that he agreed months before he said that he didnt think we would be going anyways and i got the feeling he only said yes before as he knew we wouldnt have a car for Christmas.
Hes now decided that hes not coming with us and is going to spend Christmas day on his own. Our children are 9 and 5 and think its totally selfish and unacceptable for him to say this, to go back on his word and cant understand why he would prefer to spend christmas day on his own rather than me, kids and family. He gets on with my brother and doesnt have any probs with him.
Am i being unreasonable?
