Today id arranged for three friends plus kids to come over for lunch, as my garden is quite big we thought it best they come here rather than anywhere else....firstly, i draw back the curtains to rain, rain, rain, i spent most of yesterday afternoon sprucing the garden up as it was quite messy, it was so hot i got a real workout sweating as i pulled out the patio weeds!
This is the scene i had in mind!Secondly,I went to tesco yesterday and bought lovely bread mini cakes for the kids, fruit snacks etc, then came home and made flapjacks and granny buns. I thought french tick for the adults and mini cucumber sandwiches for the kids woud be perfect, also bought some special mummy fizzy drink(not alcoholic but expensive!).....so, 4 mummies,7 kids, plenty of food eh?
Well, friend A returned my 'please can you bring kiddies drinks message' call last night, only to say she'd promised to visit a friend who was camping locally today, and so were'nt coming-surely she'd have known this 2 weeks ago when the get together was arranged?! Then, THIS MORNING, friend B text, to say, do you mind if i bring food for myself and the kids as im sticking to my diet(which has been going on for 6 years, 2 stone lost!)and the kids are really fussy!!!!!!!!!!!!! WELL, my reply text may have been a little 'blue', she quickly retracted, saying 'oh yes, bread will be fine'!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Im sorry, but how hard is it to arrange a straightforward get together with three friends? I do feel quite let down to be honest, friend B hasnt visited this house yet and she's quite a 'NEXT' girl, you know the type, a home which is all beige and not a thing out of place, and the farm, well, its at the other end of the spectrum really isnt it?! So the last couple of days have been spent tidying cleaning, sprucing, alot of 'no you cant get the barbies/farm/happyland people ou't has been shouted'....and for what???
Friend C,she's bringing her springer spaniel Ruby over, so at least murphy will have a good day!
I just feel like i shouldnt have bothered going to much effort,am i right to feel a little pissed off, or am i just turning into one of these....
what do you girls think?...
