Having children can turn your life on its head and you’ll find yourself running around like a headless chicken ensuring that your children have had their breakfast and are ready in time for school. Sometimes you just need a break or even a night off. Whether you prefer a night in or a night out take a read of how and where you can spend your night off and get making some plans with your friends!

1. Stay home
Don’t fret if you haven’t found yourself a babysitter as you can still take a breather from the comfort of your own home. Once you’ve got your little one settled for the night, grab your duvet, your favourite munchies, give your friends a call and invite them over to have a natter and watch a film! If you don’t fancy a film why not have a spa night instead and get the cucumbers and facemasks at the ready.

2. Go to an open air cinema
Make the most of the lighter evenings this summer and enjoy a film under the stars with your girlfriends where the open air cinemas are set in some of the most historic locations within the UK. Whether you live close by or fancy a drive down to one of these prestige venues, you won’t be stuck for choice with movies being shown in Baddesley Clinton, Bradgate Park, Calke Abbey, Wentworth Woodhouse and Kedleston Hall, just to name a few.

3. Go for a meal out
Let your hair down and take a trip down to your local pub or a restaurant with your friends and enjoy a meal over drinks. To save yourself some pennies and take a look on Groupon before you head out to check for any deals! If you’ve decided that you’re going to a pub why not test out your vocal chords on the karaoke machine while you’re there. Who knows, you might get discovered!

4. Go to a live performance
Jam along with your favourite band or artist and go to a concert this year, let out your desire to scream and shout over the music or why not book tickets to see a stand-up comedian and laugh the stresses of motherhood away? Take a look here to see whose performing. If you fancy something a little more close to home then why not check out a local theatre?

5. Bowling
Who said bowling is just for kids? Bowling is such a fun activity and it’s a great way to socialise with your friends while tucking into some  snacks and drinking a few cheeky alcoholic beverages!
