I've changed my name in case my friend sees this.

We are invited for lunch on Sunday,friend invited us a couple of days ago. We don't want to go so what cab we use as an excuse? We don't want to go because there will be drink and I don't want to drinkplus I don't want to eat a big lunch but don't want to talk about my diet, it makes me feel very awkward to talk aboutit. The friend is skinny and bulimic I think so very strange about food. She will definitely notice if I don't eat much or don't drink. I would usually be honest but I really don't want to discuss being on a diet. Dh doesn't want to go as he wants a day at home lazing about with us. What coukld we say? Thank you.

Just tell her you can't stand her lunches/parties and just can't be bothered to be entertained at her house. Also, advise her she needs to actually eat the bloody food because you're stuffed already! That should do it!

if you've already commited to the invitation, you'll have to give her a last minute excuse now. I would imagine she's going food shopping tomorrow so there's not much you can do about it. You'll just ahve to say one of you is really ill (hangover, cold, temperature, stomach cramp etc).
