Ooh I’m going out tonight, it’s date night with my man  kids are having a sleep over, staying with their Gran  Me and hubby a night of peace, we’ve planned to dress up fine  Going to a restaurant with lots and lots of wine  I’ve just had a rare long shower, my favourite dress is out Just need to put my make up on and give dear hubs a shout  Feel so relaxed and comfy I lay thinking on my bed Its nice to have some quiet time, no shouts of MUM in my head  But suddenly I recognise, that…
