Sometimes It Just Turns into One of *Those* Nights...


So it was off. We were trying to pin down another date with little success. Out of the original five only three could make it, and as we three were driving long distances to get there it all became too hard.


But two of us lived not far apart. Hesitantly (shy little flower I am) I suggested dinner, as free nights are pretty rare and hard to arrange in the Madmother house. Falteringly, she agreed. We had never met face to face.



Oh my Lord! What a night. Started at the local Mexican Restaurant for dinner, moved on to a Radiators gig at a local pub, ended with an hour of laughing our heads off talking in front of her place.



I feel I have a new friend, a real life friend. We talked. A lot. We both do talk a lot. We laughed, oh my we laughed all night! I think we share a similar warped sense of humour, and think fast on our feet.




I left home at 6pm, I returned at 3am.


Sometimes the nights where everything appears to go wrong can end up so right.

I had only just read your last blog before you posted this and I was on a bit of a downer for you. Now I have a big grin as I read this. Good Times!

I'm so glad it worked out so well. I always think that unplanned spontaneous nights end up so much better than the highly anticipated ones - something to do with high expectations often leading to disappointment I think!

I'm glad you had fun with Renee.

Sometimes plans on the fly work out the best. I'm also glad you had a great night.

Cold still hanging on but just annoying, not bad.

It was probably one of the best nights out I've had in decades! I agree with you Kelly, I usually end up a little disappointed with organised do's.

Next time, Mel, next time, eh?

And the Radiators were older, grayer and not as bouncy, but sounded fantastic!
