This isn't really cat related but i needed to let off some steam! I'm just a little bit annoyed at the moment as i feel as if i may have turned into a little old mad cat lady who noone wants to see anymore.. A few weeks ago i sent an invite out for a halloween party at our house - i love halloween, but it also marks the 1st anniversary of OH & i moving into our home which i think is rather special & i wanted to celebrate it. I have a few really close friends who i thought would instantly say yes but they didnt, one was a bit hesitant, one said they would come but wouldnt dress up (its halloween!!) and my best friend said maybe as she didnt want to be scared & would have to see if she could get a child sitter etc.. So i re-planned the party to make sure there would be nothing scary so as not to freak her out & even now i get the impression she doesnt want to come as just this morning she's sent me a message asking if it was still happening - in a way which sounded like 'do i have to'.. (well it kinda has to now ive bought the decorations & snacks n stuff.. plus i have 6 definates which isnt too bad i suppose) Everyone else (i invited around 30 people!) hasnt even bothered to respond with a yes or no which is to me really impolite! and for a while i was thinking why should i bother if noone else wants to? Have i really reached that point in life where everyones too grown up to have even just a quiet house gathering of costumes food and drink? Im only 26 but i feel 60!! Even my OH wasnt too enthusiastic about it.. Only a couple of years ago we would all still go out together to pubs, clubs, did loads of games nights round peoples houses, but now im lucky to see them once a month! It's just made me a little bit upset (am i being pathetic?!) i know im grown up and i have a job and a mortgage and 2 cats (thank goodness for them!) but i didnt think my going out days were over yet?! ok one or two of our friends have kids but the rest of them still either live with parents, dont pay bills or just spend their time playing computer games so i really cant understand why they wouldnt want to go out & have some fun still. Sorry if this is terribly boring!! I just really needed to have a bit of a moan and cant really do that on facebook for all my friends to see.. Anyone else going to halloween parties?!
