Night in

The weather has been horrendous in Southampton this week, and even as I write the wind and rain are lashing against the balcony doors and the Met Office have just issued severe weather warnings for areas in North West England and are preparing people for some severe storms.

Since I am of the opinion that there is nothing better to do on a stormy night than sit by a heater (well, it would be fire but I live in a block of flats, not a country lodge) with some toasty socks on, a good book and a big ol' mug of hot chocolate I am planning to do exactly this tonight.  I may even throw in a bubble bath, some nail painting and some trashy TV watching for good measure.


I know that, as a 26-year-old, I am supposed to hate nights like this - stuck in, nowhere to go, no-one even to keep me company, but the truth is, I adore them.  I have enough social engagements and hobbies to keep me busy most of the time (not to mention the four days out of eight that the boyfriend is here) and so, rightly or wrongly, I really cherish the nights where I get to go home and do nothing.

I have lived on my own for four years now, and I love it.  I love knowing that any mess is my mess, I love coming home and being able to get into my pajamas and not have anyone tell me I can't, I love not having to worry about anyone else's bills, and most of all, I like my 'me time'.  I have always enjoyed my own company, and over the last few years I have become an old person turned into someone who would much rather do some baking/sewing/watch a TV box set/read a magazine in the bath than go out drinking with friends - well, on school nights anyway.  Don't get me wrong, I love nothing more than having friends over for dinner and a bottle of wine, or going out for a meal, to the cinema, or even just round to a friends for a good old gossip, but every now and then, maybe... once every two weeks I have a night like tonight.  And I love it.

What about you? Do you love or loathe nights in on your own? Baking or boozing - what's your evening of choice? :)
