Well, for once I've checked the fixtures, I now know that the nutty ones husband will be close by tomorrow watching the football, this is when he usually does one of his unannounced and ininvited visits to my house, bringing a bag of junk for my nephew.
I almost wish I hadn't looked and didn't know it was a possibility for tomorrow, but I have and that's that.
I can't just suddenly arrange for us not to be in, and I don't want to, it's my house and home and I'm not going out just in case he turns up.
But what do I do if he does turn up. Last time wasn't very nice as he had a friend in tow, almost like the heavy mob meant to intimidate me.
If I was on my own I'd have no problem whatsoever in asking him to just leave or I will call the police, but I don't want that kind of a scene in front of my nephew, who is likely to be in if he calls. (he would cause a scene, not me, I can be so calm and quiet it's unreal, but I know he would cause a scene to draw my nephews attention if he wasn't at the door)

Uggh, I just wish I hadn't looked at the fixtures!

I could, but that feels like avoiding it to me.
He's going to turn up at the door one day when we're all in and I'll have to deal with it, without upsetting the kids.

you say avoiding I say heading off a problem. You say avoiding I say turning a negative into a positive. Not only that but positive health promotion junk food ok occasionally and at the right time. Burn it off put it back. Stuff the nutty one and hangers on. Either that or stay in and call the police if turns up I see both sides you can choose. Maybe he will have worked out the same thing so change the routine treat both of you. and oh stuff the nutty one again

We took the dog out for a couple of hours, so I don't know or care if he showed up or not.
