Festive fun and babysitting

Festive fun and babysitting

By Lauren - Gold Coast Mum

The festive season is here and it's all work parties, boys' nights and girls' nights in this neck of the woods.

My husband and I are like ships passing in the night due to our work/kids/sport/extra-curricular schedule.
If I'm going to a work event or meeting up with friends, I usually go after the kids are in bed.
So, adult time (where we actually LEAVE the house to enjoy an uninterrupted meal together) is very rare.

We attended a wedding together earlier this year - but I probably spent most of that time catching up with my girlfriends who I only get to see once a year.

And my Mum babysat for us to attend an event at our local indoor sports centre a few months ago - but even then, though hubby and I were both out, we were socialising with different people.

My mum came to the rescue again in October so I could attend my beloved RnB Live event in Brisbane (that hubby was also supposed to attend), while hubby attended a friend's wedding.

With my twincesses after swimming lessons. I enjoyed about 10 minutes of having my feet up! Bliss!
