    we are going away tomorrow with hubbys family for the weekend

    the following are going:

    his mum and dad
    me and hubby
    his bro, wife and 2 kids
    his other bro, wife and 2 kids
    his sister, fella and 2 kids

    we have split the cost equally between all 4 siblings (we are paying for his mum and dad as an anniversary gift)

    the thing that annoys me is we needed to book 2 big four bedroomed villas (costing just over £300 per couple for the weekend) to accommodate everyone because each of his brothers and sister have two children. we have no kids and have had to pay the same amount even though there is only the two of us.

    is that unfair or am i just looking for something to be pissed about (im doing it a lot lately! :growlmad: lol)

    we have always just split it 4 ways in the past and its never bothered me before but its only just dawned on me now that we are saving money for baby. surely they should pay more having two kids each? i would expect to pay a bit more for holidays when baby arrives.

    when we go on holiday we always split it per head, so if the children are like under 2 they are not counted since its no extra cost but ours is different we went butlins;

    Me
    oh
    Kyle
    My mum
    My dad
    My brother

    My mum paid for 3, we paid for 2 since kyle was free so she paid for more of the holiday because rightly so there is more of them who need own rooms IYKWIM? lol

    If the kids have their own rooms then yes their parents should be paying more.

    oh yer if the kids were babies it wouldnt bother me in the slightest but the oldest is 16 and they all have rooms too. just seems a lot of money to pay for two villas and we only need one bedroom!

    I agree, I'd be annoyed but would be hard to bring it up as you've been ok with it before, well at least not aired your annoyance before. People are too quick to blame disliking a situation or something on 'hormones' now you're pregnant grr which really annoys me, so probably best not to bring it up, but you're right to feel how you do!!! x

    well unless you want to argue it now i would just say make the most of these holidays when you have older children and their 16year olds have left home :haha:

    It does seem silly that you and your OH are paying the same price as FOUR people when there's only two of you :dohh: (well, 2 and a half :D) x
