    She was shouting criticisms at me while I was cooking dinner this eve...I know I shouldn't but I shouted my answers back at her with the same force ... she was so surprised that she stopped instantly - immediate relief..... and forgot all about it at the table.

    Don't worry, she has forgotten and you got what you wanted.

    It's a very difficult path to thread

    Maybe I've got some Matron potential - not putting up with nonsense when busy.

    Won't make a habit of it as it could have riled her - but I'll keep it in the tool box.

    My husband ignores me if I pussyfoot around him. I was a school teacher for many years and I employ my kid management strategies to organize him. It mostly works but we can have our bad days too.

    A thick skin can be a real asset too. If it's not important, let it go through to the keeper but don't beat yourself up because you're not a saint and will get it wrong sometimes.
