A Night Out

Well I had a night off on Sunday and my husband took me out, not far just to a place we used to go every Sunday night, I wasn’t drinking unless you can count 2 diet cokes and a J20.

It was lovely to see old friends as it has been 4 years since I had a proper night out, you sort of get stuck in a rut, forgetting what fun it is to socialise, some of our old friends aren’t with us now and it was strange going in to our local and not seeing them sit in their normal seats, you know a week in week out thing.

Another thing that was strange for me was I wore an on the knee skirt without tights or leggings, being a psoriasis sufferer my legs were always in a terrible state so skirts were generally a no no, since being on my injections most of my psoriasis on my legs has cleared up, yes I have loads of scaring but 90% better and I felt confident enough to show a leg.

We even had a game of bingo ha ha, not so funny really as Chris won a line and a full house, I was surprised they didn’t kick us out. I may even try to get back into the habit of having the occasional night out again, I was wished Happy New Year and Happy Birthday, I had to ask which one as it had been so long.

So i thought I would leave you with my tidy ribbons, much tidier than they were, I am still sorting and adding some of my favourite and most expensive ones onto something special to store them and hopefully I’ll be able to show you that real soon.

Glad you enjoyed your night out Jak. Your craft room looks real neat and tidy, well done. Ribbons are a pain to keep tidy I have the same problem. My husband made me a fitting for the wall and I used old video innerds to roll them on to, but then I don't have half as much as you!!!..... luv Ursula XX

Glad to hear you had a fun night out. Me & hubby always have a Saturday night together. We have been doing this since our youngest (who is 18), was old & trusted enough to stay alone. We had our kids young, so missed out, but are making up for it now Lol.

You should make time for yourselves x
