will have ds, 1 end july, and dd 2 + 10mths.
would it be terribly hot for them?
friends house doesnt have aircon. doesnt bother me.
but it be for a week, and i wold like the break away.
flight prices are ridiculous for it so for us 3 and car it'd be £700. so i would kinda hope it would be worth it
another questions - am i mad to go by myself on plane. dd will amuse herself but ds is a wriggler!
I've been invited to go to Carcassone too, but in August. Didn't even know where it was. Friends just bought a house there. Just me and dd and ds, but we've to fly from Glasgow, and know what you mean about the flight prices. A lot of hanging about in the airport too. House looks lovely, has a pool so lots ofsplashing around.
hermykne,it could be called a change,but a break..? No,no,no not by any stretch of the imagination. Are you usually alone with your kids?
I dio 7 week stretches (hile dh is away) with an 11 month old and a 4 year old. It's hard work..
Dd is 11, so will be fine. Ds is 3.5 and very blonde so will have to slather on the suncream. On holiday we normally have a break from the sun so kinda thought along those lines, like a siesta.
It is a very close friend so have no worries about just doing what is required, in fact she is ds's godmum, so she'll go along with what's needed. She will be there with her 11 yr dd and 8yr ds. So just the mums and children.
Her house is on the outskirts beside a vineyard- will that be cooler? I don't know. What are the average temps for the summer, do you know?
sammac according to bbc weather its 84 there this week - extremely hot, but my friend was there at the same time last year and although we all thought it must have been scorching, she said there might be a breeze or cloud so she didnt feel too uncomfortable or the kids.
