Rehearsal time

I've got rehearsals for the Basil Brush show this week and I didn't realise. I didn't twig that it was March tomorrow (How blonde am I).I thought that was next week....doh!

So Wednesday and Thursday nights they've booked me a hotel in Maidstone - rehearsing 9-1 on Thursday and all day Friday.....

So what to do with the munchkin....My mother is being amazing - she's staying in the hotel with me and Oscar on Weds night and then for the half day on Thursday will amuse herself while I rehearse. Then we'll all drive back to London, I'll get to look after Oz all afternoon, put him to bed and then drive back up to Maidstone and have a night all by myself in a hotel!

I know Poppy did this recently and I'm actually really looking forward to it in a sick "I'm an evil mother" sort of way. A whole night to myself! In a hotel! No baby, no nappies, no night-time wakeup call.....

I have a £10 dinner allowance too (woo hoo! The BBC are so generous). Probably won't stretch to room service but still.....a night off.....

Don't know how DH will cope! He never wakes up when Oz does in the night - even with screaming....so maybe Oscar will have to sleep through!

BTW - he did sleep through again last night! Yay Oz!

Ok so I'm feeling such a mixture of guilt and excitement about the rest of the week! What do you think?

I think that you will be absolutely fine, and the mix of guilt and excitement are completely understandable. Don't forget, as a stay at home mum, you give Oscar so much of your time, one night away is nothing compared to that. It'll do Rob good to be at home alone with him, he'll probably appreciate the responsibility. Have a fabulous time!

Have fun! I'm curious to see how Rob handles the night alone with his boy!

Oh! I used to LOVE Basil Brush as a kid... That's so cool you're going to be on the show!

Throw the guilt away! You deserve to have a night of peace and solitude at a hotel! You have earned this! Rob and Oz will do fine. Well, not as good as they do with you there, but it'll give Rob more of an appreciation for what it's like.

Good luck... and enjoy the break. You sure deserve it! And as far as Oz sleeping through the night, go right ahead and send some of those vibes my way!

Girl: Go, Run. Don't look back.

I'm thinking about attending a conference next month. I'd have FOUR nights away. All by myself. And I kid you not: I almost orgasm just thinking about it.

I can take a long hot bath. I can shave. I can watch whatever is NOT on the SciFi channel. I can sleep in the middle of a big lovely bed, and not fight for covers or pillows.
