Hi Mumsnet people
You've all been so brilliant in the past with advice & suggestions.
Weekend in Camden planned for weeks & weeks with one of my best friends from another part of UK. She has today been struck down with horrendous sickness bug. Feel so gutted that she can't make it. She's in a really bad way. Really feel for her.
Hotel booked. Family looking after DD. Neighbour looking after dog.
I have nobody to take her place due to the short notice but feel like I really want to go but feel a bit bad..and guilty...but also still bit excited & like I'm 25 again. Want to make the best from an unexpected & cramp situation...
Am nearly 40. Exhausted. Single parent. Never get 'weekends off'
I am currently doing O.L.D... Should I try & meet up with someone in the eve?
Really into health & fitness so thinking gym, maybe yoga In the day.
Am taking DD up on the train tomorrow to my sisters. Free woman from 3pm... WWYD?
Not sure why I feel guilty. AIBU to still go?

Not unreasonable at all. Don't feel guilty- enjoy!

GO GO GO! How often do mum's get to have freedom like this?! Enjoy every minute of being off duty, and sod the guilt. Have fun!

Oops just seen this thread that MN said didn't work actually worked. Different title, identical to my other one!

Do it, do it, do it! I love London, in fact , i wish i could live there for a few months to explore the place and Camden, is one of my most favourite places. When i was going to Camden on my own, I used to leave my car in Newbury Park for 1 gbp a day (dont know if you can do that anymore)and jump on the tube, i can't wait to go when my little ones are a bit older..... Enjoy

Totally go. I love alone time. Bridget Jones diary - if that's your thing - might be good time filler, chill out.

Camden market is great. You could go for an early dinner at a pub and you never know who you might meet

Ooh, enjoy. Do lots of walking, see the sights. Market, pubs, bookshops take away. Swimming? Lots to do. Love London!

Bliss. Mooch round the market. Lunch in a pub. Buy goodies and wine; go back to hotel; drink, eat, read, watch shit tv, dabble on line ...

I have gone alone from LA, so sounds good to me!

You could find an outdoor lido. Always fancied that. Close your eyes and pretend you are abroad!

Please tell me if the market is still any good.
