Home Alone...

I am a pretty lucky girl (who gets spoilt most of the time), so when our plans for a family weekend away started to get complicated I suggested that maybe Rog would like to have a weekend away. All. By. Himself.

Naturally he jumped at the chance to sleep in, read books, go for leisurely strolls & just generally do nothing for a whole 2 days. I must say, Roger definitely deserves a break, that man works hard! He gets the kids sorted most mornings, (dressed, fed etc) so that I can get a bit of a sleep in as morning are not really my strong suit. Then in the evenings, after shopping for dinner he comes home & cooks for the family as well as leading the charge with the bath & bed routine. He never complains, so this is the least I can do.
At the suggestion of my good friend Champs, I put together a little going away pack for Rog, including some yummy snacks, vino, French butter, his favorite green tea & a copy of Vanity Fair! Ryder & I even made a batch of Chocolate Rum Balls (minus the Rum) - just what you need for a lazy weekend away. I really hope Rog has a great rest & of course the upside is that it is my turn next-yay!

What a great idea! We are starting to have a similar thing with a week for his fishing trip and a week for me alone/with friends. But a weekend every now and then would be perfect!
