Ask Aunty S


Dear Aunty S 

My sister is rich and loves flaunting her wealth, which grinds on my nerves and she always invites us to Xmas dinner, only to show off all their expensive gifts they’ve given each other.

This year I cannot cope with it but she is the only family I have and I don’t want to upset her so I am torn. My husband and kids do not want to go.

What do I do?

Aunty S responds

She is not the only family you have my dear; you have your husband and children who must be your priority.

Pack a picnic dinner and head to the beach.

Just lie through your teeth and tell your sister that your husband’s second cousin on his great aunt’s side is ill and you have to go spend the day with her or a similar story.

Over and out.
