In a world of my own.
Last night Mrs Dts and I hosted a BBQ for Mrs DtS friend who is a girl (Thought best not say girl friend or I will get all the Brighton jokes) and her fella. So the girls can discuss table plans.

Really like her fella. Good lad who likes a beer. Mrs DtS mate is a good girl, massive set and always got them on show which is fantastic but total dreamer to the point where it gets boring - eg. Last night despite not owning a property at the monent she declares she is going to buy a 3 bed house. I pointed out that the mortgage would be more than her income and hence no-one was going to lend that however she kept on about booking some viewings.

Anyway - Went down the shops the day before and brought my meat and marinade (so to allow it to marnade over 24 hours) for some spicy home-made kebabs, sausages, burgers and beer/wine. All in come to about £30 but not really worried about that.

Fast forward to last night and they arrive. Now for my mind when you come to someones house for dinner its basics just to bring some sort of token gift - Be it flowers or some food/drink or even a desert.

Both of them turned up empty handed. Now I know you dont give to recieve but I do think its kind of a basic to bring something with you.

Am I right or what?
