I had to have a rant...sorry everyone!
This weekend my dear in-laws sent some books for my little boy (18months old) which initially seemed a nice thought, until upon reading the accompanying letter "...we found them in the rubbish bins and as they looked newish, we thought J would enjoy them" (this is NOT a joke and I was not amused! I wont tell you where I could have shoved them but you get the idea!)
I read back to the 'rubbish bins' and quickly whipped them out of my little ones hands as one of the books was about to go straight into his mouth - as only babys can!
Is this just me or are they deranged! They are retired and J is their only grandson. They are 'careful' with their money and this is actually the first time that they have sent a gift for him - I know it's the thought but this is lack of! Hubby has asked them nicely to not go through other people's bins and the (sort of) funny thing is that they said that the bins were sheltered so hadn't got wet...err what had crawled over them though! Aghhhh!
Santa, for Christmas please can I have new in laws!
