OUR daughter-in-law says we are her best friends, as she is ours ('In-laws from hell', Real Life, 24 April). She never felt at ease with the coldly impersonal expression 'in-law' so on the few occasions when it is necessary to refer to our relationship (mainly for the orientation of other people) I prefer to use the much warmer old Scottish equivalent: I say she is my 'guid-dochter'.
