The last Thursday of the month is always book club - and this month I have read the book (Jasper Jone - Craig Silvey) - but we are discussing two books and alas I have yet to finish the other book.
I enjoy book club - it is more a female bonding type experience than any academic literary greats getting together. As a child I cannot remember my mum going off to book club, girls weekends, coffees with girlfriends etc but these things I take for granted - I enjoy time with girlfriends. Not to say that I don't enjoy my family and love the time we all spend together.
I know that the boys love it when I go out- time with dad - they get some perks not often afforded when mum is at home - like bed time is a little later, the clothes are left on the floor, they probably get to watch some TV - and for me it is time away from my parental responsibilities - my time for me ..
