Had a lush week away wth my 3, now they are off wth exH for two weeks (altho back for an overnight in the middle) and I am missing them, I have tons on - work, studying, a party to attend, busy wth own dp, a gazillion household chores I can get done while they not underfoot etc but..... I am miserable in a quiet house after frantic end of school year, mania of going on hol straight after school broke up (and emotional leavers assembly for DS1)..... Anyone else for a virtual hand hold?

Me - DD1 is away at ex's for 2 whole weeks for the first time. We're 50% through now & I wish she was here for cuddles.
It's very selfish & self indulgent - she seems to be having a great time & I have Dd2 here still (too small to go overnight with dd1) & been in cracking form all weekend

Shall we open the wine even though it's a school night?

Yes to wine.... Except I can't as punishing study schedule this eve..... Already postponed too many times. I also know mine are having a lovely time wth their Dad, it is pure self indulgence. Sigh.

My DD won't be home for 3 weeks. I will get to see her this weekend, but I'm struggling!

Not helped by all the SAHMs on FB either doing lovely things with their kids or moaning that they've had enough of their kids. Both piss me off!

And don't get me started about the thread of yummy mummys on here discussing all the extra homework and tutoring they're giving their kids over the holidays to make sure they 'stay ahead' in school. Sigh.

Can you tell i'm fed up and need DD cuddles?

Just be pleased you get a break. I don't and have to pay childcare throughout the whole summer holidays.

Flower that's really insensitive. My twat of an ex got 50/50 after spouting a load of shit in court that the magistrates fell for. Now he palms my DC off into his mum whenever he has them because he can't cope. And not to mention he favours one child over another.

I'd give my right arm not to have a break. Because the alternative is too bloody painful sad
