Dear South West London Mum,
My mother is visiting at the moment.
We”ve been taking advantage of the “free babysitting” and going out more often than usual.
She”s a big fan of “Outnumbered” so on Saturday evening, before we popped out for dinner, I asked Mr NappyValleyNet to queue up a few episodes on Sky Plus.
Half way through our meal I mentioned how excited my mother had been as she adores the brilliant young actress who plays the daughter.
Mr NVN went white as a sheet.
“Errrr…what did you want me to set-up for her?” he asked.
“Outnumbered” I replied.
“Oh god” he mumbled “I thought you said Inbetweeners“.
We returned home to find my mum watching a bunch of sweary teenagers being disgusting.
To her credit she just looked disappointed “I used to love this” she said “but since the children grew up it”s got so rude”
