I hope other readers, some of whom have surely shared similar situations, can make helpful comments. Its rarely easy to have even very much loved parents move back in with you, when both you - and they - have learned to enjoy and value your privacy and autonomy.
Presumably you have discused this situation with your husband ? Ideally, you could jointly discus this calml with them, and explain that much though you love them both, you also need private time together. They might have concerns that even if they'd rather go to bed earlier, they might offend you by walking out. Maybe they'd also enjoy some time either alone together, or alone separately ? Is there room in the mother's flatlet, for them to spend the evening together, rather than needing to sit with you, perhaps, to be together ?
Are there hobbies and social / charitable activities they could get involved in, so they have less time to just sit around your space ?
Excellent response from Maria, as usual !
From the sound of your second response, maybe they need to be encouraged to spend the day and evening together in her flatlet, with him sleeping on your side so she isn't plagued by his snoring ?
They could also explore some simply snoring remedies.For instance, most people snore when lying on their back, so sewing a tennis ball or something similar in the small of the back of their pyjama tops or night shirt, making it uncomfortable enopugh to encourage them to roll back onto their side, can often help a lot.
And remember there is nothing actually about you not being good enough, in the way the proud mother keeps praising her son - its part of the job description of a mom.
