Being a mum is a full time job, you’re on call 24/7. We know that, it’s what we signed up for but every once in a while it is nice to take a day off from all things mumsy and go and have a giggle with your mates.
Yesterday was one of those days and seven of us headed into Manchester for an afternoon of cocktails and Prosecco with a bit of food thrown in to soak up the booze.
A few too many of these were drunk.
Balloon hats may have been worn (by the birthday girl celebrating her 40th!)
And there may have been a bit of silliness with a very inappropriate pink balloon!
Of course, the kids and families crept into the conversation but we also talked about nail varnish and hair cuts and those other things that men generally just don’t get.
One of the lovely things about about getting a little bit older is that you have the benefit of drinking in the afternoon experience. Once it gets past a certain time (and you started on the Prosecco at 12:00pm) you know it’s not going to end well. The sensible ladies that we are decided to call it a day at 8pm and got our taxis home.
At the end of the day we are mums and nobody wants to be looking after a 3 year old with a hangover!
