Last night Martyn and I spent the evening with our lovely friends Kate and John.
We went to their house to save them the need for babysitters and we had the best evening. We chatted from the moment we arrived to the moment we all decided it was time for home and bed. Because we all have young children we weren’t too late.
Since we have had children our time together as friends has been more limited. So it really makes me appreciate the time that we set aside for each other.
I was the driver last night and so there was no alcohol involved for me. Rather than being a negative I actually loved this. I was more alert, I listened more intently and I remember everything. Perfect.
It can be so tempting to start on alcohol when we get together on a Friday with friends but actually the fact that I had none made me enjoy it even more. I came home on a high from seeing our lovely friends and having had such a great time.
I woke up this morning still was full off happiness because of the lovely time that we had. Some good time with friends really is a tonic. Perfect!
