go tomorrow night and take a lovely bunch of flowers as well as whatever you were taking already.

Nevercan Sat 29-Mar-14 19:57:34

Just take a big bunch of flowers with you and I am sure it will be fine grin

Toofattorun Sat 29-Mar-14 19:57:48

Oh dear....

That is all.

Invite them to bring the food to yours...if you have not eaten already???

I have done a similar thing before, I felt horrible. I have also had friends do this to us, we actually were going to their house, turned up, no answer at the door, they had forgotten. I didn't feel at all upset/anoyed because I think we all make mistakes sometimes.

Could you buy them some flowers and drop them over with a little sorry note.

Smartiepants79 Sat 29-Mar-14 19:59:37

Well you've done all you can. It was a genuine mistake and you've grovelled an apology. If she is happy for you to come tomorrow I'd go and take some kind of gift to show how sorry/grateful you are that she's been understanding.
Be very complimentary about her food/house!

Oh lord we call do it, don't worry. She could have said forget it but she said 'come tomorrow'! Yes just take chocs and flowers or whatever.

BlueJean Sat 29-Mar-14 20:00:25

Its an honest mistake as she must have realised from speaking to you. Go tomorrow ,apologise profusely and then try to forget it.
We all make mistakes.

You will need to bring her a mothers day present, if she is a mum...

Fusedog Sat 29-Mar-14 20:01:28

Yes I will do flowers

Sadly cat88 we were eating when she rand sad

I feel so shit oh is being no help at all he just keeps saying I told you it won't have been a Sunday no fucking help

Amy106 Sat 29-Mar-14 20:02:42

Poor you. You have done all you can. Now you just have to find a way to forgive yourself.

MrsSpencerReid Sat 29-Mar-14 20:03:13

It's only luck I haven't done this, and if it wasn't for a chance comment last night I would have turned up at the wrong place for a birthday party!! As others said, flowers, chocolate, laugh about it and double check next time grin

Fusedog Sat 29-Mar-14 20:07:28

Oh frigg oh is really rubbing it in he's being do bloody smug

If the host is a good friend, she will be understanding.

I was having a reunion about 5 years ago with five of my school friends (met for the first time 60 years ago) and their spouses one day and we all turned up except one (she lives abroad). We ate everything and had a good do but, looking at my e-mails because we wondered why one had not arrived, I found an e-mail that said she and her husband would be coming the next day. We are all over the South East from Devon to Kent. Everyone got together and reorganised it so I had a reunion two days running to accommodate the one who got the date wrong. We wanted to see her because she lives on the other side of the world and it was an opportunity not to be missed. <can organise anything> grin

OK Mitchamians. I've outed myself to a few.

I'd still in pyjamas, stick them on sofa with an ipad.

BuggersMuddle Sat 29-Mar-14 20:22:20

Shit happens. Just take a nice gift (chocolates, flowers - not wine as that'll be assumed for drinking and you'd probably take that anyway?).

I'd be a bit irritated if it was a friend of mine, but I'd get over it pretty quickly as it's clearly a genuine accident.

Fusedog Sat 29-Mar-14 20:27:13

Yeah I only meet her a few times she's more of a text friend

There a really nice couple but I don't know them that well she was really nice about it
However dh is really making feel like shit it was a genuine mistake now he's making this about him and how I never listen and I should of checked and how pissed off he is yada yada

I actually feel like I could cry I no it's very silly but he's being quite shitty

AwfulMaureen Sat 29-Mar-14 20:28:45

If I were her I would totally understand. Humans's our nature to make mistakes. We're not perfect.

Moomey Sat 29-Mar-14 20:29:22

Oh gawd!.... Was she calling to see where you were? Oh well, it happens! x

FabBakerGirl Sat 29-Mar-14 20:30:57

Tell your not so DH to shut up and stop being such an arse angry.

Fusedog Sat 29-Mar-14 20:38:16

Yes moomy she sent a text asking if we were still coming I then sent a text something along the lines of .....oh just booked the babysitter all se for tomorrow at that point she rang as she must of thought oh fuck they have the wrong day.

She was really lovey but dh is being a smug twat when you feel awful already it's not helpful when others make you feel like crap

And. I know he can't wait to say tomorrow at dinner how he told me so and make me feel 2ft tall so now I am not even looking forward to the dinner

iklboo Sat 29-Mar-14 20:44:50

If I was the friend & your DH was trying to belittle you tomorrow night he'd get very short shrift from me. Everyone makes mistakes. How would he like it if you spent ages rubbing something he'd done wrong in his face?

DoJo Sat 29-Mar-14 20:45:41

It sounds like your husband is the one with the problem - why does he feel the need to compound your embarrassment by adding his two penny worth?

puntasticusername Sat 29-Mar-14 20:47:59

Your "D"H is being a tit. I guess he's just embarrassed but for heaven's sake, let it go now, dude.

And why didn't he check the date himself, then, if he was so bloody worried about it all along?

And op, we've all done it. I clean forgot to turn up to a playdate the other week. Other mum was dead worried about us, thought we'd been in an accident or something sad
