9 Great Reasons to Have a Night in.

Fancy a night out but dread all the hassle? How about a night in for a change ?

The idea of going out always sounds great in theory, but the reality can be very different. You can end up hungry, with your ears ringing from music you hate – and not to mention, low on cash. It’s not hard to come up with reasons why it’s better to stay home with booze of your choice, friends you can talk to and music you can listen to . Here are nine of the best:

1. You don’t need to brave the bar.

You don’t have to spend ages hanging around trying to catch the bartender’s eye, just so you can get a drink. Then you don’t have to choke at how much they’re charging for a glass of white wine. Then try to make your way back to your friends, only to have some clumsy patron bump into you and spill half of your wine on your shoes. At home you are your own bartender, no wait or paying through your teeth.

2. You play the music you like.

You don’t have to listen to anything you detest. You’re your own DJ, which means you can spend the whole night jumping up and down screaming:  “Oh my god, I love this song!”

3. You can avoid cheesy pick-up lines.

Such as these:

“Do you have a band-aid? I scraped my knee falling for you.”

“Are you an orphanage? Because I want to give you kids.”

But instead you can laugh with your friends about all the bad ones you’ve heard over time.

4. You’ll always be wearing the right clothes.

You know what it’s like to brave icy winds as you trek through backstreets in search of some hip new club you’ve heard about – and then to get inside that packed club and spend the rest of the night sweating. Being home means you don’t have to lug extra layers around with you to cope with these changes in climate. Your whole wardrobe is right there.

5. Your feet will thank you.

Your feet won’t develop massive blisters because you were wearing your ridiculously expensive shoes that you tried on in the shop and really did feel amazingly comfortable for those 30 seconds but then turned out to be a nightmare blister trap. In fact, you don’t have to wear shoes at all – you can walk, dance around your home. Heaven.

6. You can skip the toilet queues.

You know the toilets are clean, you don’t have to queue up for them and you’re going to have plenty of good-quality loo paper. You also know that you’re going to be able to get the washbasin taps to work without wondering what the trick to them is.

7. You don’t have to clog your arteries.

You won’t live to regret the bad kebab on your way home. You can stock up on delicious food you can tuck into at any time during the evening.

8. You don’t have to worry about catching  a taxi.

You don’t have to wander along a dark street looking for a cab, jumping up and down and waving stupidly at any you see, then finally, gratefully, climb into one, only to find the driver has a strange odour and has never heard of your suburb. You’re home already.

9.You don’t have to shout to be heard.

You’ll never have any of those conversations where your friend is shouting something at you over the music and you can’t hear her so you nod and smile. At home you can have real, enjoyable conversations with your friends without any interruptions.
