With only weeks to due date we thought we'd take the opportunity to throw a party before we'll be busy getting used to life as a family of four. So yesterday we had about 25 people over for drinks and nibbles. Just 48 hours before the party we thought 40 people were coming but then the calls/emails/texts started coming: "we're sick", "our kid is sick", "the babysitter is sick"... There was no end. It got hilarious after a while.
In the end 25 people was plenty - I had a great time and I had time to talk to most people and refill nibble trays (Peter was responsible for drinks) - and it looked like people had a good time, but we were sad to miss those who couldn't come (hope to see you soon though, even if perhaps more on a one-to-one basis) and we got a lot of alcohol over*.
So, or despite that...
Note to self! Don't throw a party at that time of the year which Swedes call "vabruari" (from VAB - care of sick child - and February)
I didn't take any photos at the party except one at the very end when everybody had left except for a couple of people and Peter put Gangnam Style on as the grand finale ;)
