Not There – Fri 19th June 2015

By | June 19, 2015

I’m not at home with Hubbie and the children so I can’t diarise how their day has been.

I’m AWOL for the night at BritMums Live.

D was very tearful this morning, saying that I was “leaving”, she didn’t seem to comprehend that I’d be back tomorrow evening.  Which I will be.  Hopefully to some cuddles and chat about what they’ve been doing – if they’re all not too cross with me for being away.

I’ve always been against any kind of respite for D, partly because she’s a girl, partly because she’s not brimming with self confidence and doesn’t have the clout to say “no” and meant it, but mainly because I didn’t think it was necessary.  Having this (little bit of) time away has made me think that her world won’t collapse just because I’m not there, that (hopefully) as long as she knows when I’m back, it should be okay.

Or not.  I don’t know until I’m back tomorrow but it has been nice to be “me” and not “D’s mum” or “T’s mum” for a while.  Networking, putting faces to names and smiling at those I didn’t know faces or names before.  I’ve even learned a new skill today but that’s for another time.

Enjoy your weekend Jx
