I'm going to Munich on Saturday.
Yup, I said that like someone who does these type of things often, dontcha think?
Long story short it is a work trip for the hubby. This is not normal for us, people who wear orange shirts to work don't often get flown to Europe with their partners for a week. And I'm completely crapping myself.
Not because of the plane or the whole foreign country thing. I have travelled lots (as a stinky backpacker) and I LOVE Germany, or at least I LOVE Berlin. Also, planes don't freak me out at all, I actually am totally looking forward to the 20 or so uninterrupted hours.
(Something that only a mother of a 2 and 5 year old could say.)
It's because I am going without my kids. Did I mention that? We are leaving the little people with my amazing parents who I am super grateful for.
So yes, I'm taking a lttle bloggy holiday for the next week or so. I may get a chance to pop up some of Scout's party pics on the blog before I go but I also may not, I'm taking it easy, trying to stay calm and just hanging with the kids. I want them to be chilled and happy when I hand them over to the parentals.
Also, I would like to be chilled and happy myself but I am a total mess, last night I kept waking up and counting how many nights until our trip, and not in an excited way. In a holy-crap-I'm-leaving-our-kids-way.
It's not something that feels natural to me, but fucked if I'm going to live my life in a comfort zone.
p.s totally going to try to get my hands on some of those Munchen Adidas badboys while I'm there.
I travel for work a bit and get this feeling every trip. But then when I’m on the plane with my book and music, and once I arrive at my destination it’s all good. The time flies and it’s kinda nice to get to know yourself again. Safe travels lovely. Cant wait to hear all about it. Xx
You must come back with those shoes – it will make the whole thing worthwhile – you’ll have a ball xx

Trust me, you’ll get a pang of mother love/guilt but it will be the best thing for all of you. The freedom you’ll have, just with hubby will be real grown up time and who doesn’t love the wanderlust of travel. You will have a brilliant time, I can’t wait to see pics and I’ll be soooo jelly if you hind those kicks. They are the business!

You had me at those sneakers! Promise me that when you do buy them you will Instagram the shizz out of them 🙂 Have a wonderful time. Handy Hubby and I left the tornadoes for a friend’s wedding in Bali just over a year ago – it felt strange but once we got there we made the most of it and I felt like a 20 something travelling again. When we got home, as much as they were excited to see us, the tornadoes wanted to keeping stay with my folks. Something about icecream after dinner every night…
