Married couple's night out not as good as their last one in 2002

A MARRIED couple have admitted their evening out yesterday was a let-down compared to that time in 2002.

48-year-old Tom Logan and wife Anne Logan, aged 47, went out on the town in Nottingham but found it very different to the last time, 16 years ago.

Anne said: “I asked for chardonnay but they didn’t have any, and recommended something called ‘prosecco’.

“That cost far too much. They’d raised their prices sharply. Tom’s gin-and-tonic was a tenner and they kept asking what gin he wanted. He had to say, ‘gin’.

“Nowhere was playing Will Young and even when they did have a proper song on from Magic 80s an angry man started rapping over it about some bitches. It was upsetting.”

“Also everyone seemed a bit young. Far too young really. I’m pretty sure we weren’t that young when we were young.”

Tom said: “And the music was too loud. Though that meant we didn’t have to make conversation or acknowledge that we’ve fundamentally changed as people and have nothing in common anymore.”

Middle class family go back to nature by 'camping' in ensuite yurt

A MIDDLE class family from London has unveiled plans to go back to basics by ‘camping’ in a yurt that has a proper toilet, a power shower and a free-standing bath.

The Bowen-Jones family, from Highgate, booked the trip in place of their usual two weeks in Provence because they thought it would be fun to experience the ‘simple things in life’.

Sonia Bowen-Jones said: “It wont exactly be a holiday, but it’ll certainly be an adventure.

“Apart from a few necessities like an Aga, a slipper bath and a little Polish lady from housekeeping who pops in to clean every morning, we’ll be slumming it.

“The nearest Waitrose is a 45 minute drive away and there’s only a 30 inch flat screen TV. but we’ll just have to make do.  It’ll be like staying in one of those refugee camps in Syria that doesn’t have a Starbucks.”

Friend of the family, Eleanor Bishop, said: “They are so tough and brave. Imagine a whole week with no playroom for the children.”
