Hello, how has your weekend been? Mine has been rather special...I've been away. With friends, and no kids...I know - exciting!! This was the view from our window...
and this was the view when I looked up...from the hot tub!...
For 2 nights I stayed here with some amazing friends. We laughed and danced and ate and drank and watched films and painted our nails and stayed up late and wore silly wigs and slept in late and read trashy magazines and NOT ONCE did I have to wipe someone else's bum or make someone else a snack or tidy up a mountain of lego or think about anyone elses' needs but my own. It was heavenly.
It was the first time since having M, over 7 years ago, that I have been away from my family. By this afternoon I was missing them, and it was brilliant to see them and get all the hugs and kisses and 'I missed you Mummy's that were showered upon me when I got back.
But those 2 days were precious, and I feel soooo relaxed. I'm going to try to hold on to this feeling for as long as I can. And we've already booked to go back next year.
I hope your weekend was great too.
