Recently I’ve been unable to take Nigel to parties and events. It’s become too hard to organise around his early morning starts (approx 2am). We used to try and get too places early, and then leave early. Now, I’ve decided I’d prefer to go and spend time with people and not be rushed out the door, so I go without him. This has the added benefit of helping me to avoid scenes like the one I’ve previously blogged about. Nigel also has the habit of falling asleep before we go, so I spend an hour screaming and begging and trying to get him out of bed before we make any headway.
ANYWAY, the point of my post is, even when I go without him, I still feel the need to take someone with me. To my cousin’s 21st I took a male friend. To my friend’s 30th, I took a different male friend. Even to my sister’s housewarming, I made sure I could drive my brother there so that I wouldn’t be going alone.
Am I alone in finding it hard to turn up to these events without company? I’m ok if it’s just my uni friends and there’s a small group of us just hanging out. That’s different. I just don’t understand why I find it so hard to turn up alone.
I’m going to have to work on this because my friends patience with all these events is starting to run thin.
