As the vast majority of mums know, your social life changes dramatically once you hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet.
While weekends may once have been a whirlwind of girlie brunches, TV bingeing and cinema trips, this tends to change when you become a mother.
While you know your friends are only a phone call away, there's nothing quite like spending time in each other's company while chilling out with the latest season of your favourite show, is there?
If you tend to be the planner in your group, then why not approach the ladies in your life with an invitation to remove their Mummy caps for an evening and relax with the latest offerings from family-favourite Netflix?
Here are just five fantastic ways you and the girls can regroup and revive during these chilly winter months!
1. Phones off
As any busy mum can attest, evenings are often spent firing off emails, tidying up toys and spending some much-needed down-time with your little ones.
As a result, you are not as up-to-date with some of the fantastic shows on offer as you once were, are you?
So why not use your girlie evening as an opportunity to reacquaint yourself with the box and catch up with the ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary in smash show Orange is the New Black?
The first person to pick up their phone is on dinner duty for the next girlie date.
2. Gossip over the latest show
While we wouldn't change it for the world, motherhood can be an endless stream of gritty reality, can't it?
From potty-training mishaps to upset stomach situations, the role of a mum isn't all sugar and spice, and it can certainly take some time to switch off.
Why not speed up the process by immersing yourself in the lives of the ladies from Pretty Little Liars?
A cosy blanket, a mug of tea and the goings on in Rosewood is the perfect way to spend time with your own ladies this winter.
3. Revisit your teen years
Let's face it, if we could revisit our adolescence for even an hour, we would!
So why not channel your inner teenage girl and assign certain characters from the shows to your litany of friends when you get together for a TV binge?
Take a vote and see who is most like the show’s most popular character, but prepare for major conflict and defensive attitudes when one friend is assigned the least interesting role!
4. Take bets
These days, there are so many shows which leave viewers on the edge of their seats, so why not try make a little money out of this fact?!
Take bets on what’s going to happen in the next episode and see whether your favourite show can help make you a little richer.
If you do happen to be the lucky winner, treats and snacks may be on you for the next viewing!
5. Plan the finale night
While the season finale of any show can signal serious withdrawals, it’s also a fantastic opportunity to bond with the ladies in your life.
Pull out all the stops for the season finale of your favourite programme and make it an event to remember.
Who says you have to hit the tiles for an incredible night with your gang of girls?!
