If you ask me what my idea of a good night is, I’d say being at home with my husband. Our girls would be asleep in bed. We’d have a good film on, and perhaps a takeaway too. I’d be laying on the sofa under a blanket next to my husband.
Boring? Perhaps, but that’s my idea of a good night!
That may change as our children get older. I may push the boat out, and my husband and I may go out for a meal in the evening, perhaps a concert or the cinema etc, but for now a night in is a good night for me!
I’m not one of these people who enjoy going out, getting hammered and dancing until you get kicked out. I wasn’t even that person when I was a teenager. Yes, I’d go into town with my mates. We’d go to clubs, I’d drink, but I can count on one hand the amount of times I got drunk. It just wasn’t for me.
I’m quite happy going to the pub for a drink in the evening, and for a meal etc, but clubbing to the early hours just isn’t for me!
I recently went into town with my friends, and whilst the club was great and I recognised the songs being played, as it was a 90s night, I just didn’t enjoy the dancing aspect of it.
I know some people enjoy going out and doing all of that, but it’s just not me. Does that make me boring? Some may think so, but then I look at my life and I know that I’m not boring.
Although nights out may not be my thing, I’ve done plenty of things that many others haven’t. I’ve organised numerous charity events to raise funds for various charities. I’ve run a half marathon, and this weekend will see me run my second half marathon. I’ve also bagged myself a charity place at the London Marathon 2019 and have so far raised £1,400 for them.
I also like to fill my weekends with family outings and days out. To be honest, by the time the evening comes round, after having spent the day working, looking after the children, cooking and cleaning etc, all I really want to do is relax in the comfort of my own home!
