Weekend Escape

Tomorrow morning my Pete and I will catch one of these:


For the first time ever we are going away for a weekend and just leaving our children at home by themselves. Ashy is 18 and, most of the time, she is more responsible than I am. She’ll have Pip organised, meals made and washing done.

Naturally she has organised a party for Saturday night. She is, after all, a teenager.

I imagine they will entertain themselves with this:


We purchased it this afternoon. It is an early Christmas present. Seeing that I made them pay for half it seemed unreasonable to make them wait until the end of the month.

Our house will be filled with drumming:




and singing during the party.

So long as no one kicks a soccer ball through any windows!

    OOoOoOoOoooooooh !!!

    I’m not much of a ‘computer games’ person, but this and karaoke … I think I would love 🙂

  15. OK so spill the beans … where did you go and how was it????? Also are they enjoying the game I was thinking about it for mine … are they too little? They are getting a Wii from Sanata.

  16. I wonder who Sanata is …. it would have been nice if he had paid for it! I actually meant Santa of course. Maybe Sanata is the Jewish Santa 🙂 … for those little children who live in my house and get the best of both worlds.
