I’ve only been married for 3 weeks, afew days after the wedding, we went on honeymoon and now i’m living at his house with his mum, brother and sister.
I feel like ive sort of settled in, finding my feet as to how they do things.
The one thing i’m finding very different, is the eating arrangements and the kitchen.
There is nothing in the kitchen, just a hob. The worktops are bare. My mother in law puts everything away in the cuboards, even the toaster and kettle.
I was making dinner for my husband and I, and they didnt have a a baking tray for the oven, so I had to cook somthing else. I was then preparing a salad and needed a knife and his mother doesn’t have any cutting knives. I wanted to wash the salad and they didn’t have a colander, so i just rinsed everything under the tap. I needed a spatuala for my food and they did’nt have one, so I used a small spoon. I needed a small side plate and they didn’t have one, so i just put some food on large plate. I needed a bowl and again, there wasn’t a bowl.
I did buy oven trays the next day and today i will be buying a few more things for the kitchen.
My husband says it’s not his house so he can’t say anything to his mum about how shes set up the kitchen.
I don’t mean to sound demanding, I’m just not use to an empty kitchen.
His mum only eats ready made salads, his brother eats take out everyday and his sister, I haven’t seen her eat dinner at home.
I have told them, to help themselves to the food I make and I have told my husband, that i’d like us to cook together.
I don’t want to step on his mums toes, by buying things for the kitchen, but I can’t live like this. I hope I don’t upset her for buying stuff for the kitchen. I know this may come across at petty or demanding, but it’s very different to what I know.
We will be moving out in 8 months, which I can’t wait.
