Get outta here.......
He is taking some time off work and sending me away for five days. Five! Whole! Days! I have never been away from Nev and the kids for longer than two nights - ever!
"You've worked so hard this year babe," he tells me.
I will certainly not argue with him on that one.
So I am boarding a plane and going home to South Australia to catch up with my sister, niece and nephew and my Mum and Dad.
I am so excited I think I may throw up!
Of course there's every chance that I'll be completely lost without my kids being around all the time. I will probably stop random strangers and push their hair off their foreheads, tell them to stand up straight or tuck in a stray shirt......
But promises of marathon "Singstar" concerts, bottles of wine at Barossa Valley and big city culture, will I am sure, get me through those moments of missing my family so much it will physically hurt.
Sigh. Well, you know, someone has to do it...........
