It was really a four day tea party. We had a steady flow of family and friends, an endless buzz of chatter and laughter, a never-ending mountain of teacups, trays of cakes and freshly baked scones, and a table covered with flowers, baby presents, gift wrapping, cards and chocolates.
We must’ve had 20+ people come visit in those four days. Old colleagues, friends from our dive club, friends from church, friends from uni, friends from high school. It was really nice to see so many people from so many different parts of our lives in such a short space of time. Last year, for various reasons, we kinda kept a low-key social life. So now it felt like we were finally back into our social loop again. Yay.
Funniest moment : Callum was struck and smittened by my friend’s daughter – a very cute 2 year old girl. I saw him go all sparkly-eyed the moment he saw her. And he was so uncool about it. Such a doofus. By the end of their visit, he was running around the house singing her name on the top of his voice. I guess he’ll learn one day.
Social etiquettee lesson : Probably not a good idea to talk about the degrees of perineal tearing around my unmarried friends with no kids.
