Winter SocialsI think one of the things that can make Winter feel like a long drawn out tedious affair is the fact that I tend to hibernate in Winter. Doing the whole social thing takes a definate back seat when there are DVD's to watch and whole blocks of chocolate calling my name from the pantry.
Which is why I was not jumping for joy when I was invited to a fund raising trivia event last night.
Firstly, it's the middle of Winter ( say no more). Secondly, the night was to take place in a school hall (never known for their warmth). Then I was told to bring my own food and drinks - that was to be the "dinner". Well, that was always going to be chips and dip - so no great incentive to go there either.
But I did make the effort because the other people going were people I love and always have a good time with. And I am so glad I did.
I've never been to a trivia night before. Who knew they were so much fun? Or so competitive? Grown men pushing other grown men out of the way in a bid to be the first to present our answers to the judging table. Truly shocking - and hilarious.
Our non-winning tableNo, we didn't win. Nor come second or even third. But I did laugh until the tears rolled down my face. And that is definately worth leaving my cosy loungeroom for.
A splash of wine always warms things up
Hope you all had a great weekend too.
