We had our last bunch of company leave yesterday at noon.
Let's see - we had overnight house guests on Friday to Saturday. Sunday we had guests for Thanksgiving dinner. Wednesday we had more house guests arrive and leave (as I said ) at noon yesterday.
Truthfully I am done with house guests.
Though I have to admit Wednesday - Thursday's house guests were the most difficult. They are vanilla and Christian and W's oldest friends. Somehow it is easier having lifestyle guests - I don't have to worry about slip ups (like calling W "Sir") but even so - it was a lot of people in and out of the house for a week. A lot of talking and noise and disruption.
We did yet another tour of Kingston Wednesday afternoon - which is ok - and I had brought my camera along in the hopes that I could take some pictures - but they didn't even get out of the car!! They took pictures through the car window. And when W asked if they would like to walk around the old Fort where they could get a really nice view of the city they didn't even answer! (What was THAT about??!!)
I tried very hard to be a good hostess - but when they left W pointed out that I talked too much :( I didn't mean to....... but I guess maybe I did talk too much. They were after all HIS friends. So maybe it would have been better if I had been the invisible subbie - I should have sat at his side and smiled and nodded and kept my mouth shut unless specifically asked a question. Hopefully I have learned that lesson for the next time some of his friends come for a visit.
Lesson noted and learned!
