I've taken to turning up with my MacBook and finishing off bits of work.
Or, in the case of last night, just faffing about doing nothing useful.
The others don't think I'm a sad git at all. No siree! I can still join in the moaning and the gossip and the chatter about favourite bathroom cleaner whilst faffing on the computer.
I'm such a multi-tasker.
FYI we really did discuss fave bathroom cleaner last night! We realised just in time that we have turned into SadOldLadies and switched the convo back to the drunk woman who fell over in the pub on Saturday night. But in case you want to know: 2 of us said CIF, 2 of us said whatever was on spesh that week and the other realised how sad we were and didn't state a preference.
