Dinner party guests wanted...

Having Doug for dinner last night was really nice. Dinner turned out really well. Even though it's Dougie and he wouldn't care if we had TV dinners, paper plates and plastic forks - he just likes being around us. We had a good laugh and we're always good with the banter and teasing - like siblings trying to out-do each other.
I enjoy being the hostess. I really like cooking for people and all the rest that goes with having company. I wish we had more friends, because I'm coming to realize that I'd be the type to have dinner parties. Parties where I'd cook a really good meal, light a bunch of candles, set the table really nice and invite a small group of couples where we could sit around with a few nice bottles of wine, laughter and good conversation. I was never in a place in my life before where I could do that. Now all we need are some friends.
Wayne didn't always live in this part of England. He moved here with his ex and never made any friends to speak of besides Doug. All his friends are back where he grew up and at our age - where do you make new friends? I don't work and he's an independent contractor that doesn't go to an office; so it's not possible for us to make friends with co-workers (which is how I've done it in recent years). Maybe I can take out a personal ad - Dinner party guests wanted. Must be intelligent, out going and witty...
