So, after a LOT of hmmmm-ing and haaa-ing (you know what I mean!!) and a LOT of persuasion from the hubster, we went away for a little night on our own!!!!! I eventually plucked up the courage to swap my changing bag for a handbag. And I have to admit we had a really, really lovely time. I came home feeling refreshed, reconnected with my husband and feeling much more ‘ready’ to be the best mum that I could be to my kids. Granted we were only gone from Friday evening until Saturday lunch time, but it was enough. It achieved its purpose and more! I’d highly recommend it!
Here’s some little snaps from our time away. (I apologise for the quality – I really need to buy a decent camera!) The Slieve Donard is a special place for us – we got engaged at a nearby beach and then had dinner there and we also had our wedding reception here, so it is always a treat to return!
This is what I wore :
For dinner on Friday night!
Can you tell how excited I am to be there?!
On Saturday :
Had to swap out the heels for some trainers when we headed to the beach!
We headed TO THE SPA!!!!!!!!!!! Hooray!!!!!
Did I have you worried for a sec there?? I wouldn’t do that to you – show you a pic of me in a bikini!!!
This is what we ate :
Yes we ordered Room Service for breakfast – A MAZE ING!!!!!!!!!! Yoghurt / fruit / pastries / cheeses / cold meats / Guiness wheaten bread AND we each had a Full Irish!!!!
You can’t go to Newcastle and not get a Mauds!
There we have it, some little snaps from our jolly jaunt kid free! A HUGE thanks to Mum and Dad for coming to our house for, in J and S words – “THE BEST SLEEPOVER EVER”!!!!! The kids loved it and it has to be said, we loved it too!!!!
