Today I am Island bound!
I'm flying out this morning to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands for a childhood friends wedding.
What's more, I'm going on my OWN - yes, without Mr H or the kiddies.
It will be the first time I have ever left the boys so I'm a mixture of excited and nervous. I know that they will be fine with Dad - it's just a mummy thing to worry about - isn't it?!
I will be away for four nights and have some pampering booked in, and the beach wedding to attend which will just be wonderful.
I have a couple of books and a pile of magazines and new outfits packed. I'm looking forward to reading, watching (entire) movies, sleeping, shopping, swimming........... the list goes on.
I will miss my wee ones but I won't be gone for long. I'm just so grateful that Mr H is stepping in to play mum.
This is so new for me with the boys. With Bell I was a full-time working mum. I had a business that would see me flying overseas every few weeks or so on buying trips. Then we moved to the UK. I was working, full time again. This time for Pepsi Europe. Flying all over the place for work. I have been used to leaving Bell since she was a very wee baby. I wanted it to be different this time round with the boys. So fast forward 4 years and I'm off, on my own.
So...........wish me luck! I look forward to sharing photos of my trip with you next week on my return.
