October 23rd 2019
Today I sat down for dinner with my parent’s for what felt like the first time in ages. For some reason or another, I’ve been out of the house every evening for like two weeks straight. Whether it’s football, or work, or travelling, or date night, I’ve been away a lot recently.
Since I wrote that blog post on the 12th about my Dad telling me I treat his house like a hotel, I’ve been out every single night until tonight. And before then I’d been out for whatever reason for 5 nights in a row too.
So, his statement is proving to have been quite accurate. It’s all fun though. I’m doing a lot. I’m seeing a lot of friends, and I’m enjoying my life. I keep saying that, but I think it’s important to say it.
Mum cooked a nice wholesome stew and dumplings for dinner. Some proper autumnal, heartwarming grub. I feel like using the word ‘grub’ makes it sound less appealing, but I wanted to avoid repeating the word ‘dinner‘.
This is usually the time of year where I the bad weather and early nights makes me feel like I’m stuck inside all day, but at the moment I’m out a lot. Tonight though, I was stuck inside. And it was good. I messed around on the PlayStation with some mates for a couple of hours and unwound. It was really refreshing to just sit in and not have anything to do — not that I don’t appreciate the nights where I do have something to do.
Tomorrow I’m out for dinner again with some mates, and then it’s the weekend and I’ll be away doing something again. And it’s fun, this. It’s really fun.
Until tomorrow, I hope it lasts.
