Why Sometimes Group Hugs Can Be Dangerous

Take half a dozen School Gate Mums, at the end of the school holidays, quantities of red and white wine and Hoegarden beer and a late night cocktail bar, mix with equal quantities of over-enthusiasm at being out of the house AT NIGHT Without The Children, some lary hip-hop music and a nationwide smoking ban and what do you get? Well, in Friday night's case you get a group hug gone wrong. In our defence the streets around our local cocktail bar are particularly precipitous. On the other hand, you can't help feeling pretty foolish when a group hug out on the street ends with everyone involved sprawled across the floor sporting cuts, bruises and broken glasses! That's what happened on Friday night. I have the injuries to prove it. And do you know what, I think we were all less than secretly proud of our little fall. It kinda proved that even though 99.9999% of the time we are all pretty responsible, upstanding members of society with Jobs and Children, we can still be as silly as can be. Just sometimes.
