This year’s blog party is already exciting some interest, which is delightful – it’s genuinely open house and I love to have lots of people in the house, it enjoys parties. This morning, a former blogger, Chairwoman of the Bored phoned to say that she plans to come, along with her daughter, best known to some of us as Katy Newton of Everything is Electric. And this, reported on Facebook, has garnered several more guests.
Several people will want to stay over – I have two spare double beds and a single, plus a double blow-up bed. After that, either someone sleeps on the sofa or, sharing a bedroom with another couple, on a sofa bed. The bedrooms are big enough to fit whole crowds of sleepers, but I only have five of them. So I’ve kept a bedroom for Zoe (ex Brussels) and her other half, one for Mig and Barney, though I don’t know if they can come yet as they won’t be able to confirm until April and Keith Smith hopes to come and I expect is wanting to stay. Eddie-2-Sox and family say they’re coming and I had promised a room, but I suspect they will be in a tent after all, at this rate. Dandelion also hopes to come, so does Alan – a sofa will be called into play, I suspect. Then there’s Vicus Scurra too and his wife – I need to make a list. We will sort things out, I’m sure, but some cosying up may be needed. Another camp bed in the study, perhaps.
July 16th, darlings. Looking forward to seeing lots of you.
