The school hols don't half eat into mum time don't they!!!! This week my sewing machine hasn't had the cover taken off. This months subscription mags haven't had more than a glance.
I'm trying to play post hol catch up this week and prepare for my indulgent weekend away.

I am very very lucky (and my lovely husband is the best) and this weekend I am off to a nice (ie I wouldn't take the kids there hehehe!!) hotel for a spa weekend with my girlie friends :)
We went last year for the day and we all agreed it was fabulous but coming home after dinner kind of spoilt the mood and that next year we would go for the weekend.
We have been putting away our pennies all year and a weekend it is!!
4 of us. We have 2 adjoining rooms, so after eating dinner in a restaurant where we can wear heels and a dress and not get asked if we want fries with that.....we can get trollied on pink wine and eat crisps whilst missing our spouses and children (yeh right!!!)
We have 10 children between the 4 of us and not a girl in sight!!! Its a case of mothers of sons stick together!!! So this weekend is a well earned bit of feminine pampering!!

Unless someone sneaks in to my house tonight and does emergency lipo I won't be looking like the skinny min in the pic above!!!!

I am having small pangs of guilt about leaving my rabble at home while I go off on a jolly but - hey - I'm sure I'll get over it :D

Can hardlys wait!! I took the boys swimming today with my friend and spa partner and after bellowing at our 4 year olds to stop drowning each other we commented that next time we were in our cossies we would have nothing to worry about but what to eat for lunch or what to drink next!!

So tomorrow will be spent making sure there is food for everyone, finishing my sleepover swap and packing my overnight bag... ttfn x
