A great night out

It’s been hard getting a good night out ever since the twins were born. They’re 4 months old now and it’s been quite a journey. Every minute of it has been great; it’s been fun watching them develop and learn new skills, Aristea has mastered the fine art of blowing bubbles, while Alexander is learning to be spoon fed. The one thing that’s been the hardest though has been finding the opportunity for a good night out.

Don’t get me wrong, we had our fair share of good nights out. And the great thing about them is that they tend to stick in your mind and you draw on those memories. Like a couple of years ago, when we went to Finland for Christmas. We had a great time, though Arthur was a bit too young to remember too much of it. Then there was the time we went to Paris, visited the Eiffel tower and went to EuroDisney. That was only last summer, so it’s still quite fresh in our memory. But before Arthur was even around, we spent some time living outside London and we do have some great memories from that period too.

The great thing about living in Staines was that we were only one train ride away from London. One particular evening that sticks in my mind was just the two of us heading into London; we went to Chinatown and stopped at a Chinese buffet. We then found an arcade in the corner called Quicksilver Games and spent the whole evening playing on slot machines. It was a great evening, and I don’t think we’ve ever hit the slots again in the same way; but it’s the sort of thing you carry around with you. It was an evening to remember and I’d recommend a visit to anyone looking for a good night out; … in the meantime .. there’s a baby crying upstairs …
