Last night was Friday Night Out with MB's friend from work and his wife.
I hadn't met them before and I was very nervous. I wore my 'swishy' blue skirt and a blue top, hoping to appear, at the least, respectable. As I was buckling my shoes MB came downstairs in jeans. Needless to say, one cutting sentence later, he was heading back upstairs to put some proper trousers on.
I really struggle with strangers, and that is why I like my Crazies, where I work and also the Company of Chivalry. Neuroses are so hard to control sometimes. Work and hobby have been so understanding about my little ways and the Crazies are as mad as me. Anyway, I tried to be cool about this new couple in my social circle, although I was terrified.
They were lovely. We talked about cars, me and Wife jibed at Hubby, we discussed kittens and cats, re-enactment, work and all sorts.
I was good; no weirdness, no kooky humour.......and it was a nice evening.
Today I went to the cinema with my Boy Crazies; cyberkitten, SleepyPete and Bionicdwarf. '21' was ok, nothing special. A bit of a let down, given Kevin Spacey and Laurence Fishburne. Nothing to grab your attention - the plot was predictable and not saved by the mediocre acting.
Now I am having an evening in at the Aginoths' - babysitting while Mr and Mrs have toddled off to help Nanny A celebrate her birthday.
The girls, Jnr and I had a lovely time watching CBeebies (kiddies BBC) before the girls went off to bed with a story each. Aren't cuddly little kids in pyjamas just the best? Jnr is a very self-contained young man for 7yrs and he just went off up to bed to read his book just a few moments ago.
So the children are asleep, my friends are enjoying a rare night out together and I'm having a Saturday Night In......just me and my chocolate bar [chuckle]
Oh - and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NANNY A!!
