Next month it will be the anniversary on the death of my lovely mother in law.

We haven't seen FIL for many months now, the final straw for me was when he said I was a liar. I claim to have a son who is a firefighter. It seems FIL has decided I don't and that I'm making it up.

Anyway, to get back to the anniversary, FIL has 'organised a memorial' no one is sure if this means an event of some sort or if he means a statue or something similar.

Either way he has been very upset, claiming to have spent a fortune on this, but that someone is trying to stop him. The problem is he's not clear on who is trying to stop him, maybe he just thinks someone will.

I think we will just keep our heads down and keep out of the way.

You can commemorate the anniversary without having to be with your FIL, perhaps?

Hester, it is hard to believe it is a year, and your L&M is still not well after the goings on.

As Margaret says if you feel L&M needs to mark the anniversary, I would think it better for the two of you to do something by yourselves, he really doesn't need any agro from family members.

We will raise a glass to MIL, just the 2 of us & leave the rest of the family to their own devices.

Heart sore and head sore
