Going out is great, but I’ve noticed that everything’s become more expensive recently. A drink costs more, and so does admission to my favourite nightclub. Also, when I want to order food, I have to pay even more for that. If that’s not enough, there’s the cost of a cab home, which has shot up of late.
Having fun costs more than it used to, or so I thought until I had a recent brainwave. I thought to myself “why not enjoy a night in instead”. I could do all the things I do on the night out without having to set foot outside my front door! I can invite my friends, make some food and serve some drinks too without breaking the bank, but what would a night in consist of?
As it’s a party, we wanted something different. I’d seen a picture of a chocolate fondue, and decided to have one at my last big night in. We dipped marshmallows, strawberries and banana pieces in and it was divine. We also had some chips and dip just in case we felt like grazing after a few drinks.
The life and soul of any party, we made cocktails such as a bloody Mary (pictured above). It was great, as we got the recipe right first time, plus we tried a few other recipes we found online. Some of them were fantastic, and we plan to mix some of the ones we didn’t make the next time one of us has a cheap night in.
After a few hours, we felt a little tipsy and looked online to see what fun we could have. After a few searches, we stumbled upon a fun bingo game which was free to try. It was so exciting to play that we spent a couple of hours trying to win, and plan to give it another go next time. Try out your luck by finding the game here.
