This weekend we had a little journey down to Epsom to see some old friends. WE LEFT THE KIDS AT HOME!!
It was the first time that we have left Jelly overnight and whilst I was a little apprehensive, I really needed a bit of time to myself. We booked into the Holiday Inn Express (which was nice, but not up to Premier Inn standards!) and we went out shopping, had lunch and partied with friends. My friend was celebrating his 36th birthday (double 18 as he refers to it as!) and so in honour of when he was first 18 in 1994 we had a 1994 themed party. Now I was 12 in 1994 so I went as a schoolgirl!
Not only did we have a great time but so did the girls. Jelly had a lovely time with her Nanny and Bean went off to her Godmother’s where she was spoiled rotten!
Overall it was a great weekend, very relaxing, and it was nice to be able to have a drink without worrying about dealing with the kids first thing with a hangover. I would definitely recommend a break to anyone, and best of all were the hugs when we got back to the girls!
