To use these tickets?

I found out Monday that I've won tickets for a weekend away this weekend! We're all very excited especially as it's the only holiday we'll get this year.

The only problem is that one of my DFs has organised a night out to celebrate her birthday on Saturday night. I said that DP & I would be going a while ago & confirmed that we would be last week. I've sorted childcare, bought a new dress & DF had said we could sleep in her spare room so we wouldn't have to drive.

Today I told her we wouldn't be going because of winning this competition, I had to text her as couldn't get an answer when I called. She's now really annoyed with me & has cancelled the whole night saying she can't be bothered to make an effort if no one else can.

I feel awful. AIBU to use the tickets? Should I have just not used them & gone out instead? I'm genuinely not sure now.

I guess some adults are just more bothered or excited about their birthdays than others. I've just had a significant birthday but wasn't bothered about doing much for it, other than with DH and DD. I never make a big deal out of my own birthday though, not since I turned about 18y anyway.Guess for others they see it as something more.

You don't sound horrible at all. I completely understand your feelings and those of your friend however, she will have alot more birthdays but this might be your only chance to go away and it's not as if you knew you would win! I can appreciate your friend being upset but knowing you've won these tickets would she really expect you not to go?

It's just one of those things really isn't it? Neither of you are bu.
