I try to be positive and accept invitations, it is a little easier now but sometimes you have to say "no".
I was in Devon with my son over Easter, we went into the local chip shop to get dinner. The owner was very friendly and chatty, while I was waiting for fish to cook he asked me what I was doing later, embarrassed and lost for words he then asked me to meet him for a drink. I couldn't get out of that chip shop quick enough. I laugh about it now and my son was amused mainly at my reaction but I felt I had to say "no" to this invitation. Poppie:blush:
I don't get asked to go anywhere, I've got kids that
arn't old enough to look after themselves and nobody to help out caring for them so that I can get out for a few hours... I guess I'm home alone for a good few years yet:(
As Sun has started this yes thing I am doing it!!!
I have been out for a drink (yes it was a Monday night ! and I did cry ) but i went AND i enjoyed it!
Husband has says he doesn't want a divorce and wants to try - so I am saying YES (for now) and seeing how it goes ... easy when you are off work to forget about the girlfriend who you work with ... we'll see how he is when he returns next week. although i have agreed to put on hold I am feeling stronger and will continue to say YES to invitations and if I find my life is not the lying cheating husband i will go my own way when I am ready.
I have just come back from Norwich = I missed reading on here. I had a great time Norwich is wonderful went to the Adam and Eve in a little cobbled street great!
Back in old hertfordshire now, cat on the bed laptop on cup of tea ... waiting for the next invitation....
I can recommend this YES business ... go and if you are cash strapped just go along for the ride and company.
Ruby - what book are you talking about - I would like to read that! see what life may bring me
