It's close to what we used to do when we were a bit younger but with more structure. Back in the day it was more of a case of always hanging around someones house at all hours of the day. Ah flatshares... So a kind of on-going dinner party where your dinner was more along the lines of bread dipped in anything runnier than bread, there is constantly music on and no-one ever goes home. Which was fun. I think its also the reason I read all these articles about people making all their friends in their early 20s because of the sheer concentration of shared experiences and after that your new friends tend be the people you work with for much the same reason. I don't know if I buy all that completely as I think so long as you keep doing interesting things you will keep meeting interesting people and relationships shouldn't be a race with some arbitrary deadline. That being said I do think its important to see your friends or catch up with them as much as is possible. Your lives get full and you move away from each other but so long as you don't put pressure on it I think you can maintain things pretty well. Its also important to hang out and do nothing constructive for a while.
And thus we have people round for dinner. Its still in its experiemental phase but its going ok...
This time we (I) decided we should have a shark theme after seeing this trailer -
I'm now on holiday from the day job for a few days (HUZZAH!) and will be generally cutting about my flat, watching movies, reading books, musing over cups of tea and pinterest and possibly taking some rainy walks. The husband has the same six days off so it will be absolute heaven!
