New(ish) mum Samantha Dooey-Miles is charting her life in doodles. This week, she left the house. Without baby. At night time.

Samantha's doodleI’ve been on this thing called a ‘night out’ this week.

You might have heard of them: it’s when you pop your boobs in a good bra, swipe on some lipstick and socialise with people who can speak full words and who, as far as you know, aren’t wearing nappies. It’s bloody fantastic.

The only hitch is, following pregnancy and general mum duties, my alcohol tolerance has depleted somewhat.

One minute I was savouring a nice glass of wine, the next my husband was restraining me from telling the man playing piano in the restaurant it’s a crime he’s not this generation’s Elton John.
