Best Son In Law EVER!!!

.......I'm gay!

Right....Here is a brief lesson to all of those readers who want to impress their mother in law on one of her infrequent visits.
These are all achievable and easy to complete

1. prepare her room with care. Lovely handmade patchwork quilt on lovely clean bed.
2. Fresh Flowers on desk and place own bedroom mirror onto her desk to act as a make up mirror
3. Clean towels set out with slippers
4. Gossip magazine left on pillow
5. Small set of Easter bunnies as bedside gift ( she doesn't eat Easter eggs)

Simples! ......all a bit gay...but it bloody works!

  4. Oh, that's just the service stuff. It's YOU she loves. Plenty of people could do all those things and not mean one single bit of it.

  5. You ARE the best son-in-law ever! You thought of all the best things that make a visit comfortable and fun. But as Mitchell said, I'm sure it's you she loves with or without the extras! Have fun!

  9. Who wouldn't feel cherished and loved with attention like that?

  10. you really know how to spoil your MIL!

    ReplyDelete
  11. You do have to tailor the treatment to the mothers-in-law, though, and my poor son-law has country hippie lesbians in that role, so his kind attentions are back-breaking. He has reamed out the storm drains, rototilled through quack grass and knapweed in the garden, hauled firewood, reroofed the barn and put up pasture fence. We love him dearly.

    1. My mother in law is easy
      She is grateful and easy going...
      It's not a hard job

  12. Definitely a Perfect SIL John. I'm surprised you can get her to go home! But, the other commentators are right - it's you she loves, for your kindness.

  13. Oh, you are a dear for preparing such an inviting little nest! Once the hard work of the spring-clean is done, the nest-fluffing is the fun bit. It's even easier when it's for someone adorable who loves you right back.

    1. Exactly! The Prof doesn't understand " small thoughtful ideas" he sees it as titivating ...

  14. I'm MIL to three and if ever one of mu son-in-laws or daughter-in-laws did that for me I'd be eternally grateful. Good on you!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am absolutely hoping that at least ONE of my grandsons is gay in hopes that I will be cherished in such a way at some point.
    What a lovely son-in-law you are. And I feel sure that your mother-in-law appreciates you.

  16. In Yorkshire we call all of that stuff "arse licking".

    1. Arse licking is quite nice

      ( ok too much information)

  17. That is so lovely, John. You are a very special, thoughtful, and loving son-in-law. I don't think this is because you are gay [or not], it's because you're a very kind man.

    ReplyDelete
  18. She loves yeah, yeah, yeah! Oh, it doesn't hurt to suck up once in a while. lol

    ReplyDelete
  19. Any chance of booking in for a bit of TLC?

  20. Just like a high class hotel! Points for John :)

  21. Well played John....well played.

  22. You value your relationship with your MIL. Very smart of you. It also is a sign of how much you love your husband. He should be grateful.

  23. You've omitted the small glass bottle of poison with 'Drink Me' on the label.

  24. Why is it a bit gay? Sounds just polite and welcoming to me, can't see gay comes into it at all

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm a MIL, can I come and stay. Please take this the right way, but if I want advice on style I ask my gay friends, they are always spot on!!

  27. It sounds like it gave you a lot of pleasure to do. I have niece and great nephews staying, Dillon is exhausted, the cats have scarpered and there is a drama going on with various phone calls to nieces sister . Hey ho xx happy Easter

  28. I am taking this as all tongue in cheek.

  29. She deserves it all....and you are a treasure!

  30. Lovely, and I bet she really appreciates it ❤

    I have a son who is the perfect house guest. Every time he stays he leaves his bedding folded back neatly so the bed can air, the window slightly open to freshen the room. Used towels he puts on the radiator airer and unused ones folded on the bench, and the bathroom is wiped from top to bottom after his shower. The other son rolls out of bed, dashes down the stairs and just goes on his way bleary eyed. Guess which one is ex-army and which is ex-student 😆😆

  31. Well done, sir, well done.
    And it really is the simple things, isn't it?

  32. You are a good chap x

  33. The fresh flowers were especially a superb gesture of good manners, how lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I wish you were my son-in-law.

  35. Just simply caring..you're the best

  36. You've cracked the code, John!

  37. You couldn't have chosen a better profession than being a nurse! Your understanding of comforting has no equal. By the way, telling her she raised a wonderful son and was a good mother goes a long way with us Moms too!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You are so thoughtful! It's all I can do to inflate the inflatable mattress! (OK, I'm not THAT bad.)

  39. Tiny touches like this maketh the host whatever his/her sexual orientation me thinks.

  40. Brilliant. I see the makings of a book here - "How To Be The Perfect Host and Dazzle Your Guests".

    ReplyDelete
  41. And a Les Dawson mother in law joke book on the pillow . . . or maybe not.

  42. Amanda says 'full marks' to you. She will however require a Landscape magazine or National Geographic 😊

  43. You gay? I would never have guessed.
