Amidst the chaos and noise that is parenting, what do you all do to get a peice of time out or escapism?? whats the best way to get a very quick recharge? am currenlty 34 weeks pregnant, have 2.5 year old and a 5 year old and like all you other poor mums out there am in the midst of summer holidays nightmare! - really needing an escape from the tantrums, fighting, bawling, lobbing, screaming, trashing, toilet training, sulking, nose-picking, wall drawing madness!!! Any ideas?

Sounds hellish!
My sympathies.
What about dh/dp? Can't he get them out of the house to give you some rest/peace?
