I am pretty easy going and a social person, though I am equally happy sitting in the background taking it all in and watching other people have fun.
I’m lucky in being a people person and others will chat to me be it in the supermarket queue, launderette or GP surgery.
I have belonged to a variety of Social Clubs in my time too and the ex husband was actually on the committee for the one at his firm.
Oh my. Did he get things wrong for their social events!!!
He arranged a do and I went out to buy a posh frock, as you do when the spouse could be considered under training management. He wore his best suit, I had a long dress, and everyone else was in casual attire. Overdressed did not even come close to the way I felt, and I kept myself in the background.
The second do he had a hand in I played safe and wore smart trousers and a casual top.
Disaster. Everyone else was dressed up to the nines, dripping diamonds and depositing furs into the cloakroom, the guys well dressed and suited. I held my own though, refusing to shrink into the wallpaper but was glad to get home.
For his third effort, I refused to go.
