When I turn up with my 5 year old and the place is locked, bolted and no sign of life...ring the party child's mother to be told "oh we changed the date to 2nd November, sorry"!!!

no yanbu to be narked. What a charming and considerate hostess that child's mother is.

YANBU. Why wouldnt they have told people when they changed the date?

She said, when I rang, "oh yes one of us was going to go up and tell people but we forgot"

How was your DC about it? I think my DD would be very upset thinking she was going to a party and then not!

He was ok about it as I explained to him what had happened and that he can go in 2 weeks. Yes, they forgot to tell everyone

If I were you I would 'forget' to turn up to the next one.

I couldn't do that...the little girl is only 5, imagine if everyone didn't turn up!

I think you're right ilove, after all 2 wrongs don't make a right... grin

Hope he has a good time at the rearranged party.

yanbu if they had made a mistake and thought they had told everyone but missed someone then maybe I could understand but to not tell anyone hmm

How can you possibly forget to tell EVERYONE? hmm You cannot. It is impossible. You change the party date and it does not occur to you to inform ANY of the guests? Crap. Missing 1 or 2 people off, fair enough, disorganised but forgivable. But everyone? Crock of shit.
