Like many parents I don’t have a lot of time to myself and nights out are a rarity, I can count on one hand the number of times we have left Isabelle for an evening out in nearly three years.
I don’t miss it but what I do miss is the social aspect of keeping in touch with my friends, sometimes being a parent I feel out of the loop but can’t muster up the energy and the time away from my toddler to enjoy an adult evening out. What I can say is that I miss adult interaction and conversation, currently I spend my days singing nursery rhymes and answering lots of ‘why’s’ and ‘what’s’ with a toddler
Recently I have discovered that I can have an entertaining evening at home by cracking open a bottle of wine, popping on my slippers and pyjamas, grabbing my laptop and hopping online to a top bingo website for an evening of adult entertainment with the ladies, gossip and the chance of winning jackpots to start that holiday/shoe fund again.
I love how social and interactive these sites are now, with special lounge areas to meet and greet, you can play with existing friends and even make some new ones along the way all from the comfort of my sofa.
I’ve been enjoying a few child free evenings now with my friends catching up over a game or two of bingo all from the very comfort of my home. It’s become a way to socialise that fits in with my needs and restricted schedule.
