Ok, so I managed to avoid inviting the whole class. And I also managed to avoid going to the bowling alley. (Would have required the staff to appear and talk to me during the 15 minutes I wandered folornly around their open venue.) And I forgot to get the giant blow up bowling ball etc, not that I am terribly upset about that.

And allwas good with the world. And then I had a phone call. M and R were coming to the party (twins) and I made mention of the after party BBQ and their parent said "Cool, do you want me to bring anything?" and I was like 'Nah, it should be fine.." and anyway, end result I eventually said 'meat.'

I felt like I lost some of her confidence in me as I hemmed and hawed. I had everything sorted for goodness sake. I doubt I have let any one leave here hungry before. But this isn't the focus of my post.

The focus of my post is the feeling of "oh dear gods, now I have to do a good job of a kids party. There's outsiders coming. I have to get softdrink and more party food and make sure there's a new candle OMG this sucks" which was certainly an unusual series of thoughts for me. But every one else is already trained to how I work. I don't think any of you expect me to have softdrinks anymore. It's just something I always forget! (Which reminds me, I have wine ready for mulling! Yay!) Plus I drink water! Or booze! And I got lots of junk food. I did buy the softdrink.  And I had to buy meat. I was planning on buying meat, but now I had to make sure it was delicious meat. :) So there's chicken wings marinating, rump steak marinating, and chicken legs to be roasted. Plus I had to buy extra salad ingredients to up the level a little. I was just going to make every one eat bread, but now there's strangers coming so I'm making 2 salads. I also bought ice and wood, too.

This is amusing me even as I see it as a bit of social anxiety. I don't have much luck making friends in my own suburb. I just hope this goes well. :)

Gosh! Where do we start?

We had a huge pile of kids, and heaps of adults. I had made a whole bunch of pirate ships and swords and wands, and we had facepaint ready to go as well. I made a treasure map! A map! There was treasure in the PIT OF SNAAAAAAAKES!

I declared the party a success before we even go to the treasure hunt! Or the heaps of pirate cupcakes! The kids all had a fantastic time, and I really enjoyed myself too.

The funny thing is that we're so used to putting on the TV, and playing Dragon Hunters during/after parties that once we'd done the one and half loads of dishes (yup, that was it!) and cleaned up, we snuggled in together on the couch and watched Dragon Hunters on the new TV! And it was STILL SO VERY PRETTY! Prettier even! Awesomecookies!
