Is there such a thing as too much partying ? If you asked me last month I would have said “No Way “, but ask me tonight after I have been out every single night this week and I am starting to think there actually could be such a thing as too much partying.
The Christmas lead up is always a busy time of year, it’s a time to catch up with family and friends exchange presents and Christmas cards.
I’m feeling excited but so so tired and there are still 21 sleeps left till Christmas.
Yesterday I visited Melbourne’s Ice Bar. For those of you that are not familiar with the Ice bar, let me elaborate. The ice bar is a bar like no other where the temperatures are a freezing 8 degrees below zero. Where everything is made entirely of ice. The seats, the tables, the ice sculptures, the entertaining ice hockey table, even the glasses where the cocktails are served are made of ice.
In order to be able to stand to be inside the ice bar you need to be rugged up in these super warm water proof ponchos, wearing ski gloves and ugg boots.
It was a really fun night, like no other. We had dinner in the quaint little Inuet restaurant next door which was just as lovely, lots of different flavours, nice ambience, and finished off the night at the Lindt chocolate shop sipping on mocha and eating yummy macaroons.
Almost makes you wish the weekend didn’t have to end, doesn’t it?
My son has a better social life than me! This thought is going through my mind as I wait in the cinema foyer for him to come out of the new Spider-Man 2 movie he is watching with his friends. Not that I should really complain my social life is very full.
I use to be the kind of person who would pass up on opportunities to get out and have fun. I had this idealistic notion in my head that if my husband didn’t want to do something or go somewhere that I shouldn’t either.
The only problem is that my husband is a real home body he doesn’t want to do anything or go anywhere. He is truly happiest when he is home out on the deck doing his own thing.
It was very liberating when I finally made the conscious decision to go on with my life without him. Now when ever an opportunity presents I take it. I am doing more, having more fun, and I think my marriage is that much better off because of it.
Nowadays whenever my husband and I do go out it is because we both want to and not just because I am dragging him along someplace he does not want to go. So we inevitably end up having more fun.
There are times I know, that I wish he would want to do more with me, and I know there are times when he wishes I didn’t want to do as much but unfortunately that is life and as long as we maintain a nice balance I think we are both happy.
You shouldn’t have to give up the things you like just to be with someone, they should ultimately love you because of those things, because that is what makes you, you.
