It is actually happening.
I am about to leave the country.
Just me and my gorgeous husband ...... for 5 whole days of child free, quality time.
Don't get me wrong. I love my children more than life itself but we really, really need this break.
A chance to take a step back and remember who we are outside of being Mummy and Daddy.
And a chance for Daddy D to have a break from his hectic work schedule.
As I write this post we are sitting in the airport departures lounge enjoying a coffee and a bagel and I am trying to relax.
Unfortunately I am afraid of flying.
So far I am ok but I am not sure what I will be like once on the plane, and let's just say the re-occuring nightmares of being in a plane crash really haven't helped much.
Stupid anxiety dreams!
But, it will all be totally worth it once we arrive in the beautiful Costa del Sol.
And to make things even better I am visiting a very dear friend while we are there.
We went to school together and have always stayed in touch and remained to be the best of friends over the years.
We have always been there for each other, even if just over the phone. and so now I am going to visit her and be there to support when she needs me te most. To be there for her while she struggles with her own medical problems at the same time as watching her Mum battle cancer.
Some times life really does suck.
I can't wait to give her THE biggest hug, and to enjoy some peace and quiet (and exploring) with Daddy D.
Thank You doesn't really cover it, but I am so, so grateful to my Mum for staying with the children and making this possible.
Love you Mum!
See you all when we get back.
