and ask if they are coming round?

Saw neighbours last week and arranged for them to come over tonight for drinks and food. They said they'd be here between 6-7 and they haven't turned up.

I have done really nice food and got in some cava. i am sitting here in a dress and have done my make up and i feel like such a loser.

I would pop round as they may have genuinely forgot. However, if they're not apologetic then I would be pissed off .

MarilynValentine Sun 30-Dec-12 19:31:16

Hmm rude of them!

I'd give it ten minutes then call. And I'd expect an apology for their tardiness.

ladyfirenze Sun 30-Dec-12 19:31:31

hold fire! wait till eight....

Spuddybean Sun 30-Dec-12 19:31:42

dp's gone round!

ladyfirenze Sun 30-Dec-12 19:32:07

and open the cava!

Wishfulmakeupping Sun 30-Dec-12 19:32:23

Yep agree wait till 8 Before saying anything

juniperdewdrop Sun 30-Dec-12 19:33:39

Have they been to yours before? This once happened to me. Except the other way round. Neighbours invited us and then weren't in? I wasn't keen to go so there was some relief. Very rude to be so late though.

trapclap Sun 30-Dec-12 19:36:05

What did they say?

Twinklestarstwinklestars Sun 30-Dec-12 19:38:45

Maybe they just run late?

Cuddlyrunner Sun 30-Dec-12 19:39:08

Waiting for an update!

MaryChristmaZEverybody Sun 30-Dec-12 19:40:53

So at least you get to enjoy a nice meal smile

crazynanna Sun 30-Dec-12 19:41:55

...and you can neck all the cava for yourself....wink

SledYuleCated Sun 30-Dec-12 19:42:23

Hoping the lack of update is a good sign!

BluelightsAndSirens Sun 30-Dec-12 19:45:29

Op would have been back having a rant by now so it looks like they forgot or assumed it was an open, pop over if you want type of invite.

Itsafreefuckingcuntry Sun 30-Dec-12 20:44:48

Still waiting for an update.....(taps foot impatiently)

FredFredGeorge Sun 30-Dec-12 20:47:42

I reckon they turned up and the OP is now too busy with the wife swapping cava to update us...

EuphemiaInExcelsis Sun 30-Dec-12 20:58:21

They've been kidnapped!

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 30-Dec-12 21:02:40

Soooo...assuming the neighbours did come round?

Iggly Sun 30-Dec-12 21:03:48

Nosy bump

ShipwreckedUnderTheTree Sun 30-Dec-12 21:08:10

Does she not realise we are all here and wondering??!

Jemma1111 Sun 30-Dec-12 21:10:32

I can't go to bed tonight unless I get an update wink

Itsafreefuckingcuntry Sun 30-Dec-12 21:11:24

Well, that's so bloody rude. A room full of nosy fuckers concerned mumsnetters abandoned!

Shamelessly being nosey
