    At 4.30p.m to take Liam's statement. I am cross it has taken this long as the robbery took place on Friday. But anyway what is the right etiquette for having the police round.
    1) Should i sit them in the kitchen or the living room.
    2) Should i offer hot or cold drinks.
    3) Should i have baked a cake or just offer a plate of Tesco value biscuits.

    I know this seems light hearted but i think humour is going to get me through . As hearing Liam recount the events is not something i am looking forward to.

    I'd go all out and offer them a selection of cakes and biscuits, they may not have time to have their tea so you could maybe make some sandwiches or ask them to stay for dinner......;) (not really!)


    we'll all be here with moral support xx

    to you DBumble...I know it will be hard on you to hear the events of that day, but try to be strong for your DS.

    So....I would defo sit them at the kitchen table...hard surface and all so they have NO excuse for not writing something down.

    Always offer coffee or tea...if they decline, offer water...I think it would be in poor taste to offer liquor...but feel free to drink as much of it as you need for yourself

    Tesco value biscuits are fine....don't want them thinking you've got nothing better to do :D

    Hang in there sweetie....and hugs to your son.

    Well the only time we had the police in our house was when our neighbours were on holiday and someone bought a brick through their window so we called the police. We offered them a choice of the regular sofa or the sofa beanbag. They chose the orthodox seating device. Offered them a cup of tea or coffee but they declined. No food on offer.

    The only other time we did this was when a policeman visited our parents house to accuse my brother of something he hadn't done and had the perfect alibi for but the policeman wouldn't listen. He was shown the door without offer of any refreshments and had to walk down our driveway listening to peals of laughter coming from the house about his behaviour.

    Sorry Mumof2 but that one was a fool.

    I'm in the tea, coffee but no food camp and definitely do whatever your son wants you to do, be it stay or go. Good luck for this afternoo.

    Mean old me, I wouldn't offer them anything. The robbery happened on Friday and they've only just got round to interviewing Liam! Ok if Liam says he would like you to offer but otherwise I wouldn't bother
