Would love to, he is diabetic so double win (cruel but hey!) he is controlling but I honestly do not think she sees it, my mother doesn’t either (probably since he is the first father figure she has ever had) my Fiance, brother, cousins etc all see it but my mother, aunt, grandmother etc. do not 🙁 its difficult as he often tried to play off his comments as a joke but its obvious its not, and after a while even if they were ‘jokes’ its not funny.

Yeah I have mentioned it to my mother (as a reply to her text) she doesn’t see my problem but has said she will try with my grandmother…but apparently he is ‘super excited to come and spend this special time with me’ urg..sick in my mouth!

That’s perfect though. If your grandmother’s husband joins you for the meals but can hang out doing stuff in London while you girls are at the fair, that might be a good enough compromise. Maybe your mom could suggest it?

I hate manipulative people, but sometimes worse are the people around them who don’t realise it!
Good luck shaking him off…If you’ve for breakfast with the creep then you can easily spike his tea 😉

Yeah, I wouldn’t go. I’m sorry, but I’m at that age where I am not spending time with toxic people -period. Grandma can love him all she wants, but I’d ask for this to be my christmas gift from her and if she says no, then I’d be going by myself.

Awful situation . Frankly I would absolutely HATE for him to be there (especially as he is that creepy, controlling sort of guy who likes choosing women’s clothes for them, eeew) It woudl seriously spoil my day .
I would contact grandma ( or get mum to) and say it really , really is a girls day grandma, I thought you were joking about whatsis name coming, honestly sorry but he is NOT invited, and that is it . If she refuses, I’d contact him and tell him to his face /phone. So sorry for the misunderstanding , but NOT invited , it’s a woman-only trip.
