But last Saturday night things went a little differently.
Hubby had warned me a couple of weeks ago that there was a "thing" on for work. This warning went in one ear and out the other and was promptly forgotten ... or perhaps ignored and disregarded ... because work things aren't always the most exciting events ...especially when you don't actually work there yourself.
So when I suggested late in the week that we get stuck into our arbor project this weekend ... I was firmly reminded that we had a "thing" on.
So I begrudgingly got ready on Saturday afternoon ...because we had to leave by 4.00pm ... to be in Newcastle by 5.00pm ... to have a few drinks and dinner ... before arriving at the "thing" by 7.15pm sharp. Hubby loves a good timetable.
Once ready I took a selfie ... with a duck face ... cause according to Master 13 that's what girls do before they go out!
So we met up with a few work people ... and had a few drinks ... and had a bit of dinner ... and then we walked up to the Civic Theatre in Newcastle ... where the "thing" was.
Upon arrival ... at 7.15 sharp ... we were ushered inside past the waiting throng ... into a private area. Once there we were introduced to a few old friends ... well they felt like old friends being so familiar and all.

Then once we had caught up ... and been put on their Christmas card lists ... and invited to join them on their next family holiday ... we went back out and took our seats ... and our new mates put on a little show for us!
Hope we have a "thing" next weekend too!!
