IT was a night to embrace our inner nana when we headed to the bingo last week.

Notorious for running late, I didn’t want to disappoint and turned up an hour after I was supposed to.

The other Seen girls and Katy Wheeler had already drank several glasses of wine and played and lost six games of bingo.

So I was playing catch-up in every sense, but I was armed with my dabber and ready to put my hand-eye co-ordination to the test.

We all agreed that the bingo caller’s voice was hypnotic and when he came over to check we were okay, Georga insisted on making him say 88 – the poor man looked very confused.

Bingo is a real skill and it only takes the slightest distraction and you’re lost – so when Georga got the giggles that was it, game over.

It was a great place to kick-off our night and although we left empty handed we will definitely be back.

After waiting for the bingo crowd to leave we headed across town to Revolution.

Wheeler suggested we have a jug of cocktail and I think that is probably the last thing she remembers, unfortunately for her Georga has video evidence of her dancing skills from later in the evening – look out YouTube.

We finished off our tasty Club Tropicana cocktail before Alison made a speedy exit and the rest of us headed to Ttonic.

As usual it was packed and when the DJ point blank refused to play Wheeler’s Rhianna request the pet lip came out.

It was old school dance night, not Wheeler’s cup of tea at all, but me and Georga were happy to reminisce about our raving days.

Georga even rapped her favourite song “Just get up and dance” by Afrika Bambaataa at the DJ as she couldn’t remember what it was called, much to his amusement.

We finished off our night in Innfusion and the less said about this the better.

It’s not often that we all get a night out together and let’s just say we made the most of it.
