Ladies’ Night Out

The shock of horror when I said I wasn’t particularly drinking when invited to a Ladies Night Out and being described the whole drink menu.

I could see them thinking; “I’m not sure she’s actually French” quickly followed by “I wondered how she survived 18 years of expat life without hitting the Gin & Tonic”!! Because you know as the stereotype goes we, all expat wives, start drinking cocktail at 5pm -or apparently when it’s 5pm at any place we had been stationed!

I think some things must stay unsaid until one knows me better. Yes I go out and have a good time without (much) drinking… Thank you very much! I can provide letter of recommendation even 😉
