A few weeks ago I went to see a friend in Yorkshire - ten years ago we would have been planning a night on the town - but now we were planning a night in with another girl friend. I found myself quite excited by this prospect - no men allowed - and a chance for a girlie gossip without the faff of getting dressed up, putting make-up on and quite frankly walking around in heels far too high...and in perishing North Yorkshire climate!
So - why do I love a girl's night in?
I love the fact that we can gossip - gossip - and gossip just a little more. I can assure you that all the men in our lives will have had burning ears that night...but shhh - don't tell them!
I love the fact that we can have a giggle - we know each other so well that we can talk about anything - literally anything. No holds barred.
I love the fact that we can drink wine without the massive bill we would have if we were in a swanky bar in town. I am partial to a glass of chilled pink fizz!!!
I love the fact that it is warm (yes - I am obviously getting old!).
I love the fact that there is no 'closing time' for a girlie night in. Even when we 'think' it's time to go to bed, it is in fact just time to find our PJs and carry on with the evening.
Am I alone in my love for a girlie night in?
No - I don't think I am - but please tell me below whether you love a girlie night in. A recent survey from Ladbrokes Bingo suggested that 69.9% of women would pick a girlie night in over a night on the tiles! I was quite shock by this figure - but also quite reassured. I'm normal!!!!
I can honestly say that my recent girls' night in was fantastic - we laughed and laughed and laughed. We vowed that we wouldn't leave it so long next time.
|How we laughed.........|
So what would you vote for....'girl's night in' or 'girl's night out'?
