I had booked accommodation at a resort at the coast for our own family of 4, over New years period and when in conversation with some friends (who had already booked their own accommodation down the opposite end of the coast - like 2 hours drive away - (I didn't think anything of mentioning it..as they had their own place booked already.... they said they will cancel their original holiday and join us... then they go and invite their parents, godparents & uncle's family to book there too and another friend then decided to jump in too with their kids! Not only that, but my BIL and his family have gone ahead and booked it as well. I feel really annoyed because I wanted it to just be us! not have a holiday with about 30 people we know!
I know there would be NO CHANCE of any time alone to do any family stuff cos BIL and the two lots of friends will want to mingle non stop... and knowing my lovely dh - he will just be all ''oh yes!" about it... he has already said it would be rude NOT to mingle..
I just want to cancel our holiday and go elsewhere, but he wants to stay there. I know I will feel suffocated and won't feel like a holiday. Dh doesn't see the big deal, whereas I do... if I wanted a holiday with friends, I would have told them to come along too... yet they go and invite themselves..
