Actually, mosschops, it doesn't sound bonkers at all. I've been toying with going on a retreat, as I love the idea of a long weekend's peace and quite, without the chorus of , "Mummy, can I...", "Why can't I..." "But she said...", "He's annoying me..." "But she had the blue plate laaaast time!" And the baby going "Meemeemeemeemee" every five mins.
I have thought of booking into a travelinn somewhere, but I know I'd spend the entire weekend mooching round shops and watching trash TV, and I think something more uplifting is needed.
So do tell a bit more. Was it an organised retreat weekend you went on? What kind of people went? Where did you stay? What did you do all day?
