We COULD however go to the movies the night before, so how 'bout it??
So, tonight myself, Jackie (from Jacksta B), Elizabeth (from she exceeds rubies) met up with Becky (from Miss Becky Boo) for a "Girls movie night!"
I dragged my cousin Sharleen along too, as she was long overdue a bit of girly time out!
We got there not long before the movie was due to start.... Bex and Jax were up front in the "waiting for tickets" line, and tried to get me to queue jump ahead with them...but I am far too chicken for that nonsense...so I stayed put back about 9 or so people.
There was no sign of Liz or Shar for a little while, so we continued on to get our tickets, and soon enough they had arrived and were through. After collecting some little treaties we got seated in the almost-bare theatre.
We watched "The Vow", and made our fair share of in-movie noise during the screening... (not myself though, I was VERY quiet!) heehee.
I think our overall reaction re: the movie was that it was okay... not riveting by any means, just light hearted, sorta romantic, sorta sad........ "OKAY" viewing. Still a great kid-free night and a good excuse to hang out with our bloggy mumma mates!
We came out of the movie when either Jackie or Becky came up with the BRILLIANT idea of going to see something else! Shar had to get home, so she cruised off, but the rest of us were keen beans! After a quick message to the "other halves" to let them know we were going to be a bit later, we wandered down to Dickens Inn for a bit of a natter and a bevvy before our second movie.
Was lovely to have the little spell in between movies for a laugh and chat, but all too soon we were packing up again, and off to see "Jack and Jill". I have to say I enjoyed this a lot! Sometimes Adam Sandler can be wayyyy over the top, but this movie was cool! We all had some real good gut laughs! We didn't really give a stuff about who heard us or cared... :)
I was so glad we had stayed for the second movie, it was great! And all too soon it was over and time to say "night night" and head off home!
Liz, Bex and Jackie saying goodbye
Cheers girlies for the socialising :) As usual catching up with you guys is a nice little boost to the soul!
See you again soon xxxxxxxxxxx
