Apologies for the bloggy silence from this Brit who is not currently in Bosnia but instead living the high life in New York City. The catalyst for the trip was a very old school friend’s wedding and Dave and I have found ourselves living the New York dream in East Village whilst the boys exhaust their grandparents back in the UK. We’ve been making the most of childfree time with long lazy brunches in quirky cafes, late night cocktail drinking in stylish bars and I’ve even managed to get Dave into a shop or two. Tuzla seems a long way away.
Whilst missing the boys, it also has to be said that we have enjoyed the chance to spend some time together, just the two of us, remembering what we were like Before Kids. The ability to shamble around without too much thought, just seeing where the day took us is something we haven’t indulged in for a long while, and it is fun. We had the time and space to enjoy each other’s company, with not a ‘Muuummmmmmyyyyyyyy!’ in earshot. It was like getting together all over again.
The fun and games is coming to an end soon. We’re now back in England and will take on the trip home which includes 2 flights, one 3 hour bus ride carrying at least 4 large bags, 4 bits of handluggage, a lap top, 2 car seats and 2 bored toddlers at the weekend. We’ll need a holiday by the time we get back.
