One week in Denmark with the inlaws... I guess I should feel privileged, my mother in law confines in me things she doesn't do to others. I don't know if this is because I've been in the family the longest or because in fact she's the same age as my oldest sisters and thus I sort of know her way of thinking and treat her more as an older sister than a mother in law.
