Bex and I are off to Bath for four nights today. Although I am looking forward to it, I am equally not as I am leaving Oscar behind.
Oscar being more quiet than Bex, I know he will be happier staying at home and hanging out with his Dad. Though a climb into my bed last night and a “Do you have to go?” makes me typing this feeling worse than I probably was going too.
Keeping everyone happy is always a hard balancing act isn’t it. I will leave miserable looking dogs and not forgetting my lovely husband (!) had to say that. A son who will miss his cuddles, but I will have a happy daughter who can’t wait to see her Uncle, Auntie and cousins.
Of course I don’t mention me, well of course it will be lovely to see everyone, but I will miss all at home, especially Oscar’s cuddles. Four days isn’t too long is it?
I hoping to catch up with a old friend who I have not seen since Bex was a baby. Lunch on Sunday will be with my Dad too, and will hopefully see my Great Auntie who is a big 93 this year and it will be really lovely to see her.
My brother has re-tiled the bathrooms just for me(!), I am joking the ‘just for me’ but no doubt he will make out it is all for me. I believe I am sleeping in a bunk bed the first since I was about 8, I bagsy the bottom bunk. Which is just as well as Bex said I might fall through the top one (thanks Bex).
I am hoping the weather is kind so we can get out and about, breathe in some City smoke or escape somewhere for some fresh air. I know Bex will be busy with the boys, she is a great cousin and family is her middle name.
I will take my kindle but probably won’t have time (energy) to read and the laptop will be packed just in case I get a chance but again……
So I have a case to sit on and a few bits (lots) to do before we are off on the train and lots of cuddles to give before we go too!
