Now that intercounty travel is well underway, we are starting to zip back and forth across Ireland again, making time to see those friends from whom we have been parted by the pesky pandemic. Now that we feel more comfortable with the whole Covid situation, it feels good to spend a stretch of time with a friend. The sleepover is the perfect solution!
Having a friend to stay – at your own home, or your holiday house – is a special kind of thing. Unlike when we were tots or teens, these arrangements are never made on the hoof. We do think very carefully about who we spend our time with. And what she does before, during and after an overnight trip, are all the signs that she’s a real good friend. You can read all of our tips for best behaviour here.
Rule number two: don’t arrive empty handed. You might bring an extra bottle of two (of expensive bubbles, or bath oil) spare beach towels or wetsuits, and a cold bag full of delicious antipasti and chocs-to-double-as-dessert which will become the first evening’s supper.
Get your gathering off to a great start with a bundle of Butlers Chocolate Tasty Pieces. Designed for sharing, these packets won’t last long as you catch up over a cup of tea or glass of something bubbly (it is a long-awaited celebration after all).
