Adults only

 Do any single parents go on holidays without their kids? where do you go?

There are a group of us from here who have the occasional night away or even a weekend. We've managed a weekend at a holistic hotel in Scarborough,  a Butlin's 80's weekend, and the occasional city hotel or country lodge. (This is over the last 5 or 6 years).  It's been such a welcome relief, and as much as I adore my darling daughters, a weekend away without them occasionally and catching up with friends is food for the soul.

I guess it's much easier when the other partner or a grandparent is available for the kids though....

Fancy joining us MM?

Met up as in a group meet up, or as in a romantic liaison?

I think that a most single parents will feel the same  :-\ it's got worse since working from home - even the dog has no idea what I'm talking about anymore!

That's because you haven't packed your tent and joined us on our trips.

Tsk tsk    ;)

Do you have a tent Foggy? I'm still not convinced there will be adult conversation but the camping trips are a great place to meet other adults and unwind whilst the kids do there thing

I do have a tent -- but you would have to put me in my own field -- apparently I sound like a train when asleep !

I love our adults only weekends.  We do them every 6 months and by about 6 weeks before each one I'm counting down the days  ;D

I get to pay the childminder for weekend care  ;)

You'd fit in well - I'd go as far to call it a potential symphony  ;D

Hurray! An adults only night has been sorted! Check out the holidays page for October - Spa Break on October 8th  ;D ;D ;D . Even has an early bird discount if booked before 30th June but looks like rooms are going fast!

I'm booked - anyone else coming?

Hopefully.

I haven't even checked the list yet - I should as I know these book up quickly. Problem is I'm so nosey I hate to think I'm missing out sitting in a quiet room when everyone else is getting together around a bottle of wine or a jacuzzi...

Really looking forward to this one!
