Don't you just love when Facebook torments you with your memories of what you were doing this time last year - as I'm wrapped around a cuppa, wearing a fleece dressing gown, listening to the rain that is forecast for the full weekend! 💦🌧🌪 OH if I close my eyes I could almost be back there (if I couldn't hear the small fella whinging that my eyes are closed!) Happy Saturday! ° ° ° #mumblogger #memories #grancanaria #mumanddad #mumanddadescape #holidayswithoutkids #birthdaybash #birthdaytreat #ipbig #ipb #takemeback #rainydaysinireland #sunnydays #beach #theonewhereiwentonholidays #oneyearago #facebook #cocktailsforbreakfast #livingmybestlife #livingthedream #idratherbeathome #ireallywouldnt
Goodbye lovely island. You have been my home for a little moment, and I enjoyed your beauty 🏝Goodbye Tu, our trip friend with a good heart, and don't forget to read Jack London's book The Star Rover💫💫💫 Goodbye Vancouver 🇨🇦 and THANK YOU, my sweet Adelka, for dream holiday and precious time with you ❤️#holidaywithsister #natureisfascinating #thanksmysister #ontheisland 🌴 #mauihawaii #sisterlove #sisterandme #holidaywithmysister #hawaii #holidayswithoutkids #cantwaittoseemykids #may2018 #ivarodarimytrips #beaches #bluesea #iloveislands #mauiisland #natureisamazing #holidayonisland #pacificbeach #pacificbeauty
I am spending 5 nights away from these guys over the weekend, when I go away with friends. This will be the second time I have ever done this (the other was a trip for our 10 year wedding anniversary, years ago). I figure they are a bit older now, and their Dad is staying home with them. I am really surprised at how much debate there is online about going on holiday without your kids. People hold very strong opinions - some say you don’t deserve to have kids if you are so selfish as to leave them at home for a holiday. Others say it’s a good thing to have a break from being immersed in their lives and can make you a better mother. Like so much related to motherhood – it’s guilt-inducing whichever way you look at it 🤷‍♀️ This community is mostly about holidays with kids. Has anyone ever had a holiday without their kids? How did you feel about it? #holidayswithoutkids #iwillmissthem

I took Jem on an outing in Chicago today, she enjoyed some deep dish pizza with me at @pizanospizzachi while we did a @tastebudtours food & history tour. We had a fabulous day, then the best tour guide ever on our boat cruise loved my earrings & brooch, he was only 31 and he knew who Jem was! Thanks @thetinyloft & @dainty_hoop for making such rad jewellery. You are truly outrageous, like Jem! #jem #trulyoutrageous #pizanospizza #tastebudtourschicago #seadogcruiseschicago #theyinyloft #daintyhoop #holidayswithoutkids #loveamerica #havingablast

Bondi Beach Sydney is so iconic and so scenic. Our kids will be heading to Sydney in a week woohoo kids have a great time. So we didn’t miss them we are booked to head to San Francisco while the kids are living it up in Sydney. #sydneyaustralia #bondibeach #bondiicebergs #visitnsw #nswbeaches #holidayswithoutkids
I feel slightly like a bit of a rat, you know, deserting a sinking ship. Because as super typhoon Mangkhut (not sure why it’s been named after a mangosteen? But then again, why not?) heads ever closer to Hong Kong, I’m deserting the fam bam and jumping on a flight to Danang. So while my husband clears the patio of pot plants and superglues the trampoline to the roof terrace, I’ll be enjoying this glorious pool at the Sofitel in Hoi An. I’m sure we’ll get hit by a bit of the ‘phoon, but at least I’ll have cocktails 🍸 #expatlife #expatadventures #minibreak #holidayswithoutkids #hoian #vietnam #stormyweather #cocktails #girlsweekend
We're going to the south. Hegoalderuntz!! #cadiz #jerez #summertime #holidayswithoutkids
“I love my babies, I love travelling with them and don’t intend to stop either. But emboldened by my recent experience of blissful adult-only travel, I do plan on making my parents-only getaway an annual feature – at least. There’s something surreptitious about it, like those secret dates from your teenage years, making it all the more exciting. Only when the kittens are away can the cats really get a chance to play!” Photo credit - @vaidyasangeetha . . Thanks @momspresso for making me revisit this blog post - in which I make the case for parents taking a break, a lil holiday without the kids! Link to the complete article in my bio. . . My compelling arguments in favour of #travelwithoutkids . . 1. Packing for just yourself 😊 . 2. Walking around with a teensy sling bag instead of a bulky backpack filled with wet wipes, story books, puzzles, travel games, an extra layer in case it gets too cold on the flight, socks, etc. etc.! Not even backup kid-friendly food for the journey, coz when the kids aren’t around, we adults will eat just about any crap they serve in-flight 😜 . 3. Not being asked “Are we there yet - when will we reach – how much longer” every 8.5 minutes. 😁 . 4. If you are not already convinced about travel without the kids, let me show you another picture. One where you are settling down for the night and not stubbing your toes on extra cots cramped up in the room or tripping over countless toys, shoes and bags strewn around. 🤣 . 5. And if you don’t sleep all night, well, ahem . . . it is certainly not because you were kicked around by your little one turning 360 degrees while she slept cozily between you and your spouse! 😍 . 7. Worry about just one bath, not three! 🙃 . 8. How about not having to worry about spice levels in food - ‘bina mirchi ka khana’ for every meal and instead, enjoying a fiery roghanjosh as much as the mirch ka salan? 😋 . Now, if you claim these simple pleasures do not sound divinely tempting, grab a fire extinguisher, because liar, liar your pants are on fire!🔥😃 #postcardsandfootsteps

We just took ours!!! (Check out our Stories for where!). It was magic. Our girls are 5 and 9, we left them with their grandmother for three nights. They (and we) coped fine with that amount of time. Although we would have liked it to be longer 😬😂. Tell us about your childfree holiday memories or plans!
I‘ve been away too long and every day I missed you more.. You look like you did before, only prettier. Every day I love you more! #holidayswithoutkids #finallybackhome #motherandson #flowers #imissedyou #racoon #loveyoumore

I missed 👦🏼 DJR so much on our trip but thanks to our family they kept him super busy and I don’t think he missed us for long x
Because it’s also great to be without them ! #holidayswithoutkids #nokids #freeasabird #corsica #vacationsfromparenthood
Last night in Brisbane, then home to reality! It’s been fun, I sewed an awesome bag, thanks Lisa @andriedesigns , found some amazing fabric & stuff, thanks Kylie @voodoorabbitfabric ! I’ve got. I idea how I’m going to fit it all in my suitcase but I’m sure I’ll manage!
Интересно, сработает ли тут вопрос "Угадай страну по фото?"😋 . Вот работаешь ты, работаешь, и тут - "бац!".. настает время отпуска. И все, кто знал о предстоящей поездке, спрашивали, поедем мы с ребенком или без него. В основном, все радовались за нас, когда узнавали, что мы едем вдвоем😅 а уж как мы-то рады были😂🙈 . И, знаете, это было прекрасным решением: отдохнули и мы, и ребенок. Пока мы из дома в аэропорт ехали, я была как на иголках. Но стоило зайти в самолет, я "отключилась", свобода одурманила, наверное😂 . -по возвращении- Соскучились по нашему 🐼#mylilpanda просто невероятно.. Вообще наш 3,5-летка за 10дней реально стал четче говорить, стал еще больше нам помогать😊 я вот думаю, надо бы почаще практиковать такие вылазки😜 в садик стал ходить без протестов: веселится, играет в группе👏🏻 Конечно, бабушки его баловали и откармливали😅🙈 куда ж без этого😂 но Вова уже вернулся в форму (щечки опали) и привык к нам обратно😁 . Желаю всем найти такое место на Планете, которое будет Вас максимально "заряжать". И чтобы в этом поиске Вы объездили весь наш прекрасный мир✈️ 🌸✨ #отпускбездетей #янеидеальнаямать #детки #маманануле #вдохновение #thai #thailand #kolanisland #kolan #sea #summer #beach #lovelife #jellyfish #plankton #sharks #snorkeling #snorklife #sand #песок #волны #waves #catchthewave #notperfect #son #holidayswithoutkids #эмоциональноевыгорание #коплюэнергию #вневесомости

Holiday dreaming! Definitely time for a little adult one on one time. Give me all your suggestions for two nights!
Holidays are always hard for me, as I don’t see or have much communication with my family, but holidays that are so centered around children are the hardest for me. I so badly want a child to hide eggs for, to create an Easter basket for, to love and cherish. It’s so damn hard, and heartbreaking.💔 #infertility #infertilitysucks #holidaysarehard #holidayswithoutkids #iwantababy #depression #depressed #heartbroken #children #holiday #Easter #chronicillness #chronicpain #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #lupus #methotrexate #spoonie #ifeellikeafailure #worthless
Let’s talk about F R E E D O M. The fifth cup. The cup that defines for me a choice. I’m truly free. I can’t believe it’s my fourth Seder — yes to me there was before and there is after. There were days when I thought the process would never end. Two years of court hearings, stress, judges, paperwork. That time did not fly - but yet already four years have passed. We watched Prince of Egypt this weekend. There is the part that Moses says “He didn’t want to see until he could no longer not see (the oppression).” I didn’t want to see it. I didn’t want to acknowledge the pain and my suffering to anyone. I slowly told others and one turned to a few. I felt the burden of the bricks leave my shoulders slowly. It’s my fourth Seder. No my son isn’t with me. I’m F R E E, but it also doesn’t feel so. A juxtaposition of feelings and emotions. Just as the frogs overran Egypt and made everyone uncomfortable, it will not feel 100%. I will not be able to recline fully. A frog will linger in my throat at times and my eyes will glisten, but incredibly enough I see the world in color. I can see. I escaped my own Egypt.
