Quick question - I've got the whole afternoon to myself and need cheering up! What can I do?

Was thinking of popping into London and maybe going to National Portrait Gallery for current photography exhibition - or to the cinema? But not sure that wandering round London on my own in the rain would do much for my cheer-up quotient! Go out in the rain or stay in with a couple of DVDs?

If it was me a DVD sounds great, especially if it's pouring down, and a big box of choccies. Thing is though if I stay in I can't avoid looking at housework around me and just usually end up clearing up. Retail therapy is always one of the best things. It's never easy to browse around the shops with the kids are on tow. Have a wonderful afternoon you lucky MN!!

Exactly, sparkler - I feel the need to 'do' something so maybe getting out of the house would be a good thing! I used to love going to the cinema on my own but am wondering if that's a bit sad on a Saturday afternoon?

I often go to the cinema on my own, my soon to be exDP thinks it's a bit odd, but I think its one of the best on your own activites. Going into London sounds lovely though, I used to love doing the galleries when I lived there. I really miss living in London, there was always so much to do.

Right, you've decided me - cinema it is! Big tub of salty popcorn all to myself and a couple of hours of total self-indulgence... Don't know what I'll see but am going to take myself off up to the west end and see what's on...
