This week my husband and I did something we have not done in a very long time, in 18 years to be precise. We went away over-night, just the two of us! Now, our children are not little anymore - 15 and 18. And yet it seemed a big step to leave them alone at home for a couple of days
So we packed our gear, checked our bikes, instructed our children, asked the neighbours to keep an eye, and off we went!
We did neither!
It was wonderful to spend time together, cycling quietly, struggling and supporting each other up those unexpected hills, setting up camp together and sleeping (slightly uncomfortably) in that tiny tent.
All was well at home. (I think the children quite enjoyed their parent-free time too!)
Will we do it again? You bet!!
