Much like 95% of the population, I’m pretty into music. I saw my first band at the age of 15 – Weezer, supported by Remy Zero, at the Manchester Apollo in 2002 – and can still remember how amazing it felt when they took to the stage and started playing (“My Name Is Jonas” was the very first song FYI, it still give me chills).
Whatever kind of mother you are – stay at home, work at home, work in an office – Friday is always SO welcome. For me it means adult conversation and 50% more grown-ups in the house, which in turn means I have 50% more time to do really important stuff like go to the rugby club and drink beer. Or watch Strictly Come Dancing.
Going out used to be such a big part of my life. At least twice a week I’d be at dinner, drinks, or in a nightclub – with my job and a husband who was a promoter I’ve never known any different. This stopped when I was pregnant and too tired to lift a glass to my mouth, never mind staying awake til 6am .
