I'm not taking the family though, I'm going on a girly weekend in Magaluf, God help me please! There's around 20 of us in total, friends from the town where I grew up.
My husband is taking a couple of days off work, I have school dinners booked for the older two and I have already made Jack's packed lunch for tomorrow. Dinner is in the slow cooker and the washing is up to date.
Last night my 10 year old gave me 1 Euro that he found in his bedroom as spending money. This morning he gave me a big cuddle, told me to have a good time and not to get drunk. I told him that I couldn't promise to do both of those.
I'm sure they will manage fine, they only have one Rugby tournament, 2 football matches and Tap Dancing lessons and have already been invited to a barbecue on Saturday afternoon.
I still feel a little guilty about leaving them so this is what I have left them to ease my guilt a little :
