Gosh, time does fly!
It feels like yesterday when the idea of escaping the dull weekdays popped up when my lovely (girl)friends and me gathered for an other movie and bar night.
We are all mothers, with one or several children, some of us are back to work already, some still breastfeeding/babysitting at home, some, like me, trying to manage life and family while being a work-at-home-mom.Those nights are very special. We all are very excited about it, we choose our nail polish, hairstyle and makeup very carefully, most of us buy new clothes too.
You have probably realized that these occasions are not happening too often. It takes such a big effort just to find a date that suits all of us, to start with. But once we agreed on a date, we expect a lot from our getaway and most of the times, it flips out of control.
OK, I am exaggerating, we are just happy to meet each other, having great fun remembering and discussing good old times.
Last time we met, we decided to do something we have never done before. We are (if our husbands agree) making us a long weekend, we are going to fly to London and spend 5 days there!
I know…I sounds too good to be true. But guess what: we all were granted! LOL
But now, I am a bit worried, not only that I have had a sick child with painful ears at home, not being able to go shopping (clothes) and think about packing, I am a bit concerned about a slight returning sore (or sensitivity?) in one of my teeth.
One night left, and tomorrow off we go! I am excited.
I decided not to worry about clothes, we are going to London, I am going to buy fancy outfits there. So luxurious. I feel like a princess. I hope I can get some sleep tonight.
Have you ever been to a getaway with your (girl)friends? Do you think that 8 people is just too many to maintain unity when traveling?
