Losing my kids..

I am taking them all to my mother-in-law for the week tomorrow. I normally love doing this, one whole week, no kids time to myself and time with my hubby, just us. But this time..well this time i'm not so keen. I know i will miss them and want them home as soon as i drop them off! I don't know what's diferent this year but i really do not want them to go! Yeah they will have a blast and go on all sorts of day trips out around London but i just want to keep them here, with me!
At least next Saturday when i pick them up will be a good day whatever! I know i should be greatful and no not everyone has the luxury of their kids being taken off their hands for a week but i really like being around them!

Richard has a job interview on Wednesday for a job in Hobart, Tasmania....could mean a family move!! LOL not a small one either!
Wish us luck :)

I feel the same just about my wife going away for the weekend, i enjoy the space but miss her a huge amount (dont tell her that though).

You would think that I would always be ready for a break--but I have a time being away from the kids--it's like I would love it if someone would keep them a couple of doors down and they could pop in and out--that would work for me!

Tasmania?!? Wow--and I was a wimp about a 700 mile move. Tasmania--it's gonna take me a bit to wrap my mind around that one!

Thanks for the comment of 7 of 8's pic--I actually messed around with some editing yesterday but then didn't get the re-edited pic posted--have you played around with GIMP at all? --it's freeware-shareware like photoshop--

Tasmania.....
Blessings!

that should say I have a 'hard' time being away from the kiddos--more coffee, more coffee--no wait, I think it was the Tasmania thing that threw me off my piercing prose....

I am having a look @ gimp :) I'm a paint shop pro gal at heart :)

I completely get that, I hate being without my kids, really hate it, selfish I know, but they are great company, and time with them is more than enjoyable and certainly not a chore.... I hope you cope OK....

Yay on the job interview! I can't wait to hear what happens! And Tassie is just lovely!

Hope you're having a great week of quiet and rest!

You know, I need to play more with paint shop--I have it on my laptop, but I just tend to keep going to the programs I'm accustomed to--I do wish I had the quick edit photo options (vingette, comic, etc.) that we have on Scrapblog--anyway, going to play some more on paint--may be asking for some pointers!

Okay, I keep rolling around the Tasmania thing--
Blessings!
