Party strategy

We've got 10 for friends Christmas lunch tomorrow (plus 4 under 3s) it's a tradition we've upheld for the past 8 years. However 10 people is a nightmare I've come to the conclusion it's the worst possible number, especially with the amount of little people around. Starts at 2pm will meander until whenever. At present we don't know whether we're putting 3 couples up and 3 children or none or 1 or 2. So we're having to make up 3 beds which means washing all the sheets and then 2pm doesn't suit everyone because of baby feeds, football commitments and on and on and on.

And these are our closaest friends. I've come to the conclusion that you either go easy and have 6 or you just say fuck it and invite 100. Either way it's easier. 6 people and you cater for 3 variables. 100 peole who cares you say the date and time and if they can turn up then great if not well who cares there are another 99 who will.

sounds good Six, and you're right to 'let it meander'...all the best do's are spontaneous and what happens just happens...

I always ruined them by cleaning and doing the washing up (because I can't stand mess) but people always took it as a hint to go!!!

I hate arranging things. But somehow it always seems to me who has to organise everything, whenever I want to meet up with my army mates, or anyother get-together. It's a pain in the arse.
