Sleeping! shock grin

I have a 5 week old DS and a 14 yr old DD. I am feeling my age this time around I'm not old, just older than when I gave birth to DD.

I have had a few social invites from friends (these are not dinner / cinema / soft social invites they're for full on nights out) and, so far, have been able to side swerve going out by being somewhat honest in so much as I'm just not ready to leave DS yet. And I have also been diagnosed with PND (whole other story) but the real, honest to Godfrey reason is....

I'd rather catch up on missed sleep if free time were available.

I love my friends but I'm just so bloody exhausted and socialising is the last thing I feel like doing.

AIBU? Should I force myself to socially flutterby?

Don't force yourself if you don't want to.
You need to recover from your PND and get much more settled than 5 weeks in.
You will go out with them when you are good and ready but that's not yet.
You catch up on your sleep and get yourself better then you can go out and celebrate.
I love sleeping!

I knew I couldn't be alone with my thinking.

Thanks for the support. DP has just come in from work and after a horrendous night and a not much better day, I've handed the wee man to his daddy and will go get some sleep before the night-shift grin
