We had some people over on Saturday night and I think it went okay. If you weren't invited please don't feel bad. I was trying to keep the numbers down, so we could keep the noise level to a minimum. Everyone took off their shoes at my request, although I'm not sure how much that really helps. I offered socks to anyone who needed them. One pair of socks went home as a gift and the other - well, the other will be converted into a sock monster. We haven't had any negative feedback yet, so I guess we're in the clear. The last guest left around 11:40 so I think we succeeded in keeping within reasonably party hour guidelines.
Again, please don't feel bad if you weren't included. We'll be planning more intimate get-togethers with the people we couldn't invite, which is the type of party I prefer anyway. I'm not really into large social gatherings - especially hosting them. I find that very difficult. And you don't really get to talk to anyone. And very often you don't get to eat when you host a party. I think I ate more at my wedding than I did on Saturday night.
And no. I didn't take any pictures. It didn't even occur to me.
