My mum is coming to stay... for 2 WEEKS

My mum is coming to stay... for 2 WEEKS.

So I've made all the preparations... fluffed the duvet... put an extra pillow on her bed... bought english tea, and sherry.

And I've dug a big bast@rd hole in the garden to get rid of the evidence quickly should the worst happen.

Is there anything else I should do in preparation?

Develop a severe back injury that prevents you from performing any DIY or trips to charity shops and boot fairs. I seem to be up to my arrse in paint and filler every time my mother decends.
I'm sure that it's a test of your loyalty and sanity :p

How old is your mum? Is she breathing? How far are you away from me? I could distract her entirely so that you would hardly know she was there!

No, really. I could help. Honestly. I would give the site a blow by blow account too, if you wished. Or just a private report for yourself. It would certainly put her off coming again for a very long time, and it would all be done as a favour for you. An act of charity and kindness. No thanks required.

Personally I'd be wanking like a good'un. You don't want to disapoint her by not being match fit.

I'd get a load of jobs ready aswell. No point in her sitting around with nought to do.

check out the cuisine de compo thread and make her a slap up meal using some of the recipes that have been touted on there.
I would say the old cheese on biscuits brown sprinkled with lemon screech sounds like a winner, nothing like a bit of cheesecake for desert, she will think you are a gourmet chef and invite you to cook for all her friends when you next go to visit her.

Incesting question. Sorry, I meant interesting question.

BB you are most of the way to finding your solution. I firmly believe that there is not a single problem that can't be solved by the purchase of a quality shovel. How you use it is your choice.........
