|At my age, it's a sign I had two glasses instead of one|
Friday night is one of our favourite nights of the week. Quality time on the sofa watching a film as a family, with dinner on a tray. Unwinding together after a busy week of work and school wrapped in a blanket, being cozy.
Everybody does Friday night differently. And everybody does it right. Here's what Friday night looks like in our home, what does it look like in yours?
Rev T makes a special dinner - something a bit more elaborate than normal - or we get a takeaway we eat together as a family. There is wine for us and lemonade for the Tubblet. And pudding. We don't usually do wine or pudding because waistlines, but we do on Friday. Before dinner, there may be treats. On Friday night, crisps make an appearance. On other nights, crisps are forbidden because waistlines.
We try and make sure all chores are done so the weekend isn't spent doing housework. This doesn't always happen, but the front room is hoovered and may see a duster. Sometimes we dim the lights and light some candles.
One of us gets to pick a film for the rest of us to watch. And enjoy. Complaining because you didn't want to watch that is not allowed. Dimming the lights makes it feel like we're in the cinema. Rev T says the TV picture looks better in the dark. After the Tubblet goes to bed, Rev T and I watch grown-up TV. The Last Leg counts as grown-up yes?!
Let me know what your Friday night looks like in the comments. I'm sure there are some ideas I can nick to make ours even better!
