Well it was fun - really great fun!! And what we all needed and why we will do it again and again! It wasn't all rowdy and raucous and there wasn't any dancing or pillow fights in G-strings as some husbands thought it might be!!! It was 5 women (all mothers) enjoying great food, fabulous drinks and just being together.
We are a funny group - a bit like the book in that we have all met through the school where our children go and so have known each other 3 years maximum. We were not around to see each other pregnant, in the early stages of new motherhood or relationships. We each went through those stages with other people and through moving here, have emerged and changed into who we are today. I certainly feel a renewed energy (albeit a bit hazy this morning!!!) having spent quality time with girlfriends who are not dependent on me and see me as an equal not a Mother or Wife.
