Without the Weans

You know that I love my children, I really really do, profoundly, deeply and unconditionally. Always good to get your disclaimer in early.

Is it wrong then for me to be so feckin excited ? Porquoi, I hear you exclaim, because from Thursday 17th of July until Thursday 24th of July I will be sans weans.

That's right, your auntie will be child free for a week.

Again for emphasis, I will be child free for a week.

Jesus, Mary and Holy St Joseph, what will I do with myself for a whole week ? Answers on a postcard please.

I have approx 2 days a year when I am free of all of them at the same time. Just enjoy the sound of peace, enjoy the fact that you will not have to hide that cake/chocolate. Enjoy not washing and folding the endless bloody piles of washing.
Then spend the next 6 days waiting for them to come back!

Do all the things you find you can't do when they are around, such as; walk around naked, drink lots, have sex in the afternoon, watch whateve you like on TV, etc, etc. And most of all ENJOY, and don't spend the whole time missing them, which is what I would do...

Swear a lot, eat the sort of food that they don't like and enjoy some decent tv for a change.

I'm with indigo16 on this one. The first 2 days will be great and then you'll wish that they were back!

There are awards at my place, when you have a minute.

lol..you are too funny lady!
I love it.
I agree, eat all the crap that you don't usually have around the house...(you're lucky you are at the source of one of my major addictions - walkers smoky bacon crisps *drool*)
stay up late, sleep in later.
turn up YOUR music really loud.

at least that's what I do (sans crisps...can't find em here) when my son is at his dad's...

:-)
