When I googled 'homebody' the definition that I found says that a homebody is 'a person who likes to stay at home, especially one who is perceived as unadventurous.' Now I am the first to say that I am a massive homebody but would like to say that being a homebody doesn't necessarily mean you're not adventurous. I like being out and about and experiencing new things but what I love most about it, is coming home at the end of it.
I love spending time with my friends and doing things but home really is where the heart is. I love the comfort of cranking up the heating (heating bills be dammed I will not live in a freezing house), making a cup of tea and lighting a scented candle. I worked for a bar for a year and saw some right sights so the idea of going out and 'clubbing' on a weekend generally fills me with some mild dread. I go out maybe twice a month? I got all the partying out of my system in my first year and seeing as I've signed up as an organ donor I feel I should keep my liver in the best condition possible. Staying in just seems safer and more fun (for the time being I get my second hand embarrassment by watching What Happens in Kavos and Sunny Beach).
My ideal Friday night is spent on my sofa with a cup of tea, or if I'm feeling adventurous a glass of wine, a film and reading through some of my favourite blog posts. I always make sure I have nice things around me in my living room that make it cosy, it makes it hard to try and drag myself to bed once I decide to turn in. It's comforting to have stuff around you that makes you happy. Company and cuddles are also appreciated, ideally in the form of a kitten or a corgi but a girl can dream. Fluffy socks and nice smelling moisturisers are also a must! Rain outside is also a nice addition for the atmosphere. I'm working my way through some old Disney films at the moment, I still need to see Frozen so maybe that will be my next Friday night!
Are you guys homebodies as well? What would your ideal Friday night be?
