Why don´t you:

  do more "Kitchen-Dinners"?
Not the latest newest thing to do, but always great fun and not too difficult to organise. Just make sure, that the kitchen does not look like a battlefield and that there is enough space for everybody to sit comfortably.
The big advantage: the poor cook does not have to slave away alone, but can enjoy the talk while carving the chicken...

  do more "Music at Home"?
Just invite some good friends over, open a bottle of wine and get copies of songs all of you now and off you go. If you have a piano and one friends who knows to play it, even better. Great fun and after an initial shyness the most entertaining evening you will have passed in months, loads of laughter and fun guaranteed...

  do more "Little Travels"?
Even just a day away from your ordinary day to day life is refreshing. Going to Paris for lunch with a friend sounds complicated, but is not the end of the world: Just jump in the train and here you go or to London for buying some tea and having a sip with another friend over there? If you plan well ahead tickets are affordable and the excitement of being alive and seeing the world gets you going for another 2 months in the daily treadmill. If you can stay overnight by all means do: it is a real break and feels much longer than only 24 hours. Proof that time is definitively "relative"...

  do more "Tea Parties"?
Even less work than a kitchen dinner, it is the ideal way of spending a lazy Sunday afternoon in the company of good friends. The advantages are several: not only is the time frame generally a shorter one than for a dinner, food preparations are minimal, as you in the last of all events can rush out and buy some cake, toast and butter. Really good quality tea in huge quantities for the adults make a feast for every one without the stress of formal entertaining with a 8 course dinner. Highly recommended also for inviting new acquaintances - just the right thing to decide whether you will be friends or stay better on a more formal footing...

  do more "Operas and Concerts"?
Get some friends together and organise between yourselves the concerts and operas you would like to see. This is a good incentive to go out to hear good music and do it in good company. Much more fun, than sitting in your pyjamas alone at home with a CD or, even worse, alone through a Wagner Opera, without anybody to comment on the horrible soprano or share with you the  desperate Glass of bubble in the interval...
