sad I had a table for two booked at a local restaurant at 6. She knew this! What could I eat tonight to cheer myself up?

There must be a heck of a lot to this story OP?

That sucks. Did gp's know she was supposed to be going with you?

Get take out smile

Did they not invite you?
Send for a Chinese take away, with all your favourites. Open the wine! wine

Not really! Planned to have Dinner with dd. But now she’ll have eaten. All out of food - I ate last nights leftovers for lunch because I had dinner plans.

That’s a bit crap. How old is she?

Personally on my rare nights alone I make mushroom risotto and have copious wine. Nobody else will eat it do it’s a rare treat.

Chinese is an excellent idea - that’s cheered me right up!

GPs did not know, to be fair.

Oh I love nights on my own. Lots of wine & food & NO SHARING. Perfect.

YesILikeItToo Fri 19-Jan-18 16:56:28

Risotto is another excellent idea - I think I have the rice and there must be something I could stick in there - you are so right that it matches up well with the 9/10ths of the bottle left over from making it!

She’s only little!

GreatDuckCookery Fri 19-Jan-18 17:05:49

How is little?

If she's only 'little' presumably the GP had to ask your permission in that case why didn't you say tonight wasn't convenient

YesILikeItToo Fri 19-Jan-18 17:11:00

They didn’t need to ask my permission red, she was with them and they thought it would be a nice thing to do.

GreatDuckCookery Fri 19-Jan-18 17:11:19

You said " she knew this " I was thinking she'd be at least 12!

GreatDuckCookery Fri 19-Jan-18 17:12:11

Maybe it would have been nice of them to ask but maybe you should have mentioned it too?

I feel this thread will be like getting blood out of a stone grin

YesILikeItToo Fri 19-Jan-18 17:15:08

I see that I’ve fucked it up, duck but I was nonetheless experiencing some regret over my nice dinner. But I have been very inspired by the suggestions above to make it a different sort of evening.

GreatDuckCookery Fri 19-Jan-18 17:16:54

Rearrange for tomorrow? How old is DD btw?

YesILikeItToo Fri 19-Jan-18 17:20:29

DD is 8. You are so right to say that there will be other chances to go out for dinner. And I get a risotto into the bargain. Maybe - just checking my the rice position.

GreatDuckCookery Fri 19-Jan-18 17:21:37

Have a nice evening wine

If she's "only little," you can't really expect her to understand the significance of having a table booked for dinner. It's unlikely a little kid would tell her grandparents that she can't have dinner with them because her mom has a reservation elsewhere.

Deliveroo is your friend.

Topseyt Fri 19-Jan-18 17:32:18

Perhaps get yourself a takeaway of something you really like.

GlitterNails Fri 19-Jan-18 17:34:20

Deliveroo only covers some big cities. It's not in my area. Wish it was!
