Mummy and Daddy got home at 3 AM
Parents escaped into the night and got home at 3 am like a pair of teenagers! Edit – comment on a social network re this expose: “Man, if I were those two’s kids, I would have sent them to their room to think about their actions…..” – seems we broke our curfew!
We met some friends for a few drinks and a bit of dancing! Phones are not the best for taking pictures at night, but here are a couple of shots to prove yes, we DO have a social life, even if events are few and far between! I recommend this to all our fellow parents out there!
There were some strange sights in the “bathrooms” (I am avoiding strange search terms there – Piglet in Portugal knows why). I just HAD to snap it, although this morning I have no idea why!
The lights hanging in the outdoor area of the last nightclub were beautiful! We queued! I haven’t queued to get into a nightclub for a very long time, but queue we did. In the freezing cold! Now, we were OK, but we were all stunned at the lack of clothing worn by some of the young girls out partying. We wonder how many cases of pneumonia are going to result. Don’t those under 25 feel the cold? It is WINTER here! Midnight! Cold! Mr O gave me his jacket a couple of times as it was nippy, even for this cold-hardened ex-Kiwi!
Doof doof music was the order of this particular nightclub which the men loved but us women were a little bored with the repetitiveness after a while – next venue choice is ours!
We stopped for a coffee at a McCafe on the way home. It was the only place open that served coffee at that hour, sadly. Sadly, McCafe coffee is also sad! I was astonished (sign of old age?) at the number of girls
stumbling waltzing around in McDonalds barefoot and the number of security guards patrolling the place. Scary!
A good night out was had by all!
We got home to clean sheets and a beautifully made bed, courtesy of the noise makers. Nothing like a freshly made bed after a night out on the town.
Today? Back to parenting! Mr O is off at the boys’ Sunday soccer match, I am about to go get MORE bread and milk (I think we need to buy a cow and a bakery).
Date nights: every parent needs them! When was YOUR last date night?
