However the thought of having some of my best friends round, in our pjs, mixing cocktails (or drinking tea), eating nibbles and playing party games sounds like a much more appealing prospect. Also from a mummy point of view it would save me looking for a babysitter (providing that they kept the noise down)!
A survey by Ladbrokes Bingo recently discovered that 70% of women much prefer a night in than a night out. Although a night out is seen as the most exciting choice (getting ready being my personal favourite part), they are expensive and sometimes don't live up to expectations, long queues, paying to get in EVERYWHERE and my personal low point- the weather! Nothing worse than rain ruining your perfect 'do or fake tan!
I'm actually heading out with my girlfriends for a rare night out tomorrow but the work that goes into in is just phenomenal. I've spent more time finding a new outfit and planning how we are going to get there and back than anything else. It's so time consuming and expensive. And although I know we'll have a good time, as we always do, it's almost too much hassle to bother!
Now that the cold weather is here to stay I think that next time we fancy a night out I'm going to gather up the girlies, some chocolate and X Factor and have a cheap & cheerful girls night in. No men or heels allowed!
