I need to remember how to have fun!
Although I am a happily married mum of 3 boys, I've always had fun times. Saturdays were something to look forward to. Especially the pictures that would arise the next day......
These are the before and after shots of my birthday 2 years ago!!
I started the night glammed up posing with the hubby.
I ended the night on my ass outside the pub!!
Now I'm sat home on a Saturday afternoon, cooking pie and typing this.
As little as a year ago I would be in the bath now, with music playing, getting ready for a night out. I would still be looking after the kids, but I'd be relaxing myself. The hair dye I want to put in certainly wouldn't have sat by the sink for 3 days waiting for me to make time for it!
I love being a full time parent, and I understand that as an Autism parent my children are more demanding of my time and attention, but it never got in the way before.
Something else changed too........The people that I loved socialising with are now in loving relationships. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't be happier for them. But why does that mean you can't have fun with your friends? I've been in a loving relationship for 24 years! That doesn't stop me from being around other people! We're not joined at the hip.
I just need a night of booty shaking and fun! Hopefully fuelled by copious amounts of vodka...
How do you have fun? Do you look for busy pubs full of music and fun, or would you rather look for peace, with a nice meal?
