According to DCs social worker. I have to get out of the house. DC are having their first overnight with dad in 5 months. I have gotten very used to having them here every weekend again, I quite like it. I don't have a social life. But she is right, I need to get out of the house.

What do I do? confused

Go for a walk?
Read the newspaper in a coffee shop?
Go to the cinema?
Go for a swim?
Any friends who might be up for a meal out and a chat?

Enjoy the time to be you again, rather than Mum.

Will definitely go for a big long walk with my hairy child dog. Will probably save that for Sunday as they won't be back until dinner time. It will break up the day .

I'm pretty skint so not sure about cinema or meal out but could probably manage a coffee. I feel like a dick asking people if they want to meet up though because I am never usually available when they ask. In fact they've stopped asking because they know.

The weather should be nice. Take a book and a picnic to a park and enjoy the freedom. You never know your luck, one of your friends might be having a BBQ.

Take the first step, contact some people, I bet they'll be glad to see you.

Ask them, ask them, ask them!
It's not being a dick, it's having the opportunity. But don't get down hearted if they already have plans at this notice. But it's certainly worth a try.

Ok I've just texted my friend. She is married and usually spends weekends with her husband but maybe she will have an hour or two free.

I'm in NI sick. You're probably not? grin my friend is up for going for a bite to eat! I'm pathetically excited about it.

Sounds great!

And if you have more time to kill go to the cinema! Lots of my friends who are shift workers go on their own and no one bats an eyelid.

Enjoy flowers

Well I would go and see Beauty and the Beast as I have two DSs and they refuse to see it!

Apparently 'Snatched' with Goldie Hawn which is on at the moment is very funny. A good laugh rather than a weepy might be more what you need grinflowers
