Our Friday Nights In

LifeMarylin2 Comments

Ah Friday... I used to always look forward to Friday night... get all glammed up, go out for drinks with friends at the student union, dance until the music stopped, and walk/stumble home via the local kebab shop. 

That was the life!

These days though, my Friday nights are tame in comparison, and I wouldn't change them. 

I have these two gorgeous boys you see... and when we get home from the school pick up on a Friday it's high fives and fist-bumps all around as soon as we're in the door... it's the WEEKEND!! 

We often get an order in, pizza, chippy or something similar, and get cosy in our jammies to sit together, while all playing on our own devices... Kindle, DS, iPad, the usual. 

We'll find something to watch together on TV, and enjoy a little picnic of food while we're watching (Jurassic World is next on the cards, that Zack saved up his pocket money for all by himself!), cosied under blankets and just enjoying being with each other. 

Of course this doesn't happen every single Friday, but most weekends at some point we'll do that. 

My favourite part though, is once the kids are in bed... all tucked up and out for the count. 

The time when I can finally relax and catch up on some random tv, or do some gaming, before going to bed safe in the knowledge that I don't have an alarm set for the next day.
