We're going away this weekend - without the kids!! I'll just repeat that... without the kids! We're taking ourselves off tomorrow afternoon after dropping the children at my mother's house. It's a lovely hotel we're going to - but I'm just so looking forward to having some peaceful time without constant clamouring demands.
Inevitably tonight I'm feeling hassled. There seems so much to do before Christmas that I feel as if I can't spare the time to be away, and I need to pack for the kids' weekend as well as ours. And our car seems to have developed a sudden, mysterious and tremendously helpful electrical problem which probably means that the battery will be flat tomorrow morning. I can envisage a dawn call to the RAC and then a trip to the garage before we try to set off in the afternoon. Aaargh! But once we're on our way I think I'll be able to chill a bit.
So, I doubt I'll be posting anything here over the weekend. I think I'll leave my lap-top at home and take some books instead. I'm sure you won't miss me and I'll be back home on Monday with a list a mile-long to work through in the pursuit of the perfect Christmas.
