It’s not very often that I do something socially as I am very much a hermit, but we were invited to go to a Halloween Party this weekend (yes I know, it is BELTANE here and not SAMHAIN but we do love a bit of fun too). So we donned on our Halloween glad-rags and decided to participate in this gathering of ghouls and misfits…
Caetlyn went as the Vampire Queen, Paul went as the Grim Reeper and I went (naturally) as a green witch.
I must say I was very proud of us, we lasted a whole 2 hours before we got the jitters and had to leave….I think that is a record for us hermits.
I must admit to you that I don’t like being out of my comfort zone, and even though I try my hardest not to let it show in social situations, I get very anxious and want to run away from people and hide in my own little world.
There was only a few people that we knew at the party – mainly people in the theatre industry, but once we had chatted to them, had a couple of drinks, I just wanted to go home.
Both Caetlyn and Paul are no better than me in that respect either….Caetlyn was bored and getting eaten alive by mosquitos and Paul was chatting to a few people, but wanted to leave as he was getting eaten alive too by the pesky little insects (BTW – they don’t eat me, I must have poison in my veins…LOL).
So we were there from 7:30pm to 9:30pm – a record for us I think!!
It was fun to dress up, but it was lovely to come home and relax in our world.
We are such hermits!!!
I think it will be a long time before I come out of my comfort zone again!!
