When I’m really busy all week and then have a million and one things to on the weekend, it’s very easy to get stuck in a bubble.
I socialise a lot with peopele from work: It’s a PR company, it’s part of the package! And I see my flatmates (albeit not much this week…) but sometimes I completely lose track of my social group outside of these two spheres. I’m sure everyone knows how easy it is to get in a bit of a rut. But if I want my life to be anything like Sex and the City (I’m not that sure I do, but the principle stands!) then I need to try a little harder!
All week I’ve been out at the crack of dawn before either or my flatmates have even stirred, and by the time I’ve got back from work, they’re been out already at their respective bar/club jobs. I work days, they work nights…I may as well live alone some times!
So, Alex (my male flatmate) is out working again tonight, but Katherine (my slightly manic, completely loopy but lovely other flatmate) is home, so I thought it would be nice to have one of my best girlfriends Emma over for dinner.
I’m going to cook some dinner (I adore cooking but I never bother when I’m cooking for one), and there will be wine, conversation and pudding…What more could you ask for?!
With the stress of the week, it’s really nice to relax, have a nice meal, a catch up and a bit of a gossip (do I sound old?) and with the cost of ‘going out’ in London as much as it is these days, staying in is by far the cheaper option! That, and with the weather as chilly as it is at the moment
It’s easy to let your social life slide, especially when you’re busy, but making time to catch up with close friends (or even meet new people if you’re daring!) even if its just a quick coffee or a meal together can really make the difference. Everyone’s busy, but that’s no excuse to forget about the important people in your life!
…God…I really DO sound old!
