bit of background:

colleague has been in company a year,I was on maternity leave for more than half of that, so whilst she is a realy nice girl and we are the same age, I dont feel I know her as well as the others do.

now she's leaving and there's a night out at a local resturant but i dont fancy going!

its an expensive resturant, indian which i hate so i dont want to pay lots of money for a meal i wont even enjoy, plus there's the babysitting issue - dh has a business trip away.

so AIBU? everyone else is going i think...

I would go personally, simply because it's a night out with your other colleagues who I presume you DO like?

That said, I didn't go to my staff Christmas do last year because I just didn't fancy it! It's up to you!

I wouldn't go. Just say dh is away can't get a babysitter and wish her well.

Nah, I never go to leaving dos as I'd rather hang with the living and not with the dead and they are always faux sad

Just don't go. It shouldn't be an issue.
