Wow, October's been a good month for meeting up with friends.
First, we met up with our friend, T, before the worship workshop.
And then there was the day when B came to visit. And the night when I met up with K and Caren.
Then we went over to Robyn's for a delicious lunch. Proper photos to come one day when I'm caught up.........
I then had a speedwalking lunch with Mrs FF (I had a meeting I had to get back for).
And then we had Sam and her lovely family over last Saturday.
I would have met up with Jenty on Wed but we had a double-booking situation so that's moved out.
And last but not least, I met up with J last night.
Somehow it feels like there weren't as many as there clearly were (8 if you've counted).
Maybe that's because of the speed-dating or because of the weekday meet-ups? I don't know.

In my last post, Terisha commented and said she and her friends meet up at each other's house and may I add.... this is TOTALLY my preference. I'm not sure why but that somehow hasn't happened often with my friends? Reluctant entertaining? :)
I used to be very a very reluctant entertainer til I realised I only have to be myself. I'm not a big cook so I do what's comfortable for me, and if people don't like that, well, they are welcome to bring along what they want to eat too ;)
Pros - much cheaper, especially for a family
Cons - washing the dishes (I'm not averse to using paper plates! Remember, we have no dishwasher)
We used to pay Nanny S to come work once a month on the "entertaining Saturday" but the new nanny can't work on a Saturday due to her religion, so I'm going to keep things nice and easy from now onwards.
Are you a reluctant entertainer like I used to be?
Or do you have your friends over?
PS My Irish friends in Dublin said it's very rare to have people over in Dublin.
PPS Please go over to my friend Se7en and donate to the Cuppa for Cansa project. It's SUPER easy and it's for a good cause!!! Take your croissant/ lattes/ cappucino/ soda money tomorrow and donate it. I love supporting my friends when they have good ideas :) :)
