On a lighter note, I was reading the names and was thinking WTF?? Then read they're not the real names.. Ha ha
I totally understand you do not want hubby to leave, and to be honest, I would feel the same. But, if he's not prepared to do that for whatever reason, would he pop back to the room every 30 minutes?? How would you feel about that as a compromise??
Sh!t, so you have about 7 hours of worry until it happens and then a couple of hours for the dinner. How are you feeling now??

I'm the same as you when it comes to daycare, babysitters, etc. I've only ever left DD with family, and once with the gym creche.
I don't know... I would say that for the amount of upset it is causing you, and based on the fact that Beryl doesn't want to do it, then I'd be expecting DH to put those things above a dinner.
Especially when he can take Beryl to the dinner. Sure, it might not be a big boozy night (if that's what was planned), but I'd be upset with DH if he overruled my feelings on something like this. In our case, DD has never been left with a babysitter, so for that to happen it would be a pretty major discussion that we both took part in and agreed upon. I wouldn't ever force the decision on DH, and I wouldn't expect him to do that to me either. It doesn't seem fair or considerate - especially since you can't do anything, being so far away.
Hope he listens to you.

LOL, was that Con the fruiterer??
I understand what you're saying, and I do not wish to be in your position. I would have serious issues about the not knowing too! This is one of your babies. Speaking from one control freak to another....
I thought as much about the sleep department. Hopefully he'll come back with something that will make you feel at ease.

I would totally feel the same way, and be annoyed thay child was taken on a special trip only for them to make it adults only so she is with a stranger in a strange place

Oh no, what a terrible situation. Hopefully when hubby calls back he can give you the reassurance you need. From your previous posts he sounds like a lovely kind bloke who wouldn't unnecessarily upset you (now your sister on the other hand....)
Hope you get the response you need so you can be calm and get some sleep tonight.

ohhh ok update...
so he called me at 5am to tell me he was going to go down to dinner.
agnes was allowed to stay awake and watch a movie.
the babysitter was a granny who runs the local preschool and so he felt safe.
she was given his mobile phone and was able to text dh on BIL's phone.
a brother checked on them every 20 mins.
agnes did not get upset.
he rang me 2 hours later to say he was going back upstairs and i got to speak to agnes.
i am still a little shaken about it. i guess i will never be sending her os again!!
dh is being a little off
with me as he feels i do not trust him to make the right decision...he said her safety and comfort matter just as much to him..he has a point...
