Me and dp have just come out the other end of a huge arguement, and we want to spend some "quality" time together, just the two of us without dd. Anyone got any suggestions of where a good place to go is?

how much money have you got: rude question, but the answer does depend on it somewhat...

Oh yes £300 would do for Paris. Lovely.

You could whisk off on the Eurostar - there are brilliant offers on that.

personally I'd stay in this country and spend the money on a really swanky hotel in scotland - romantic scottish castle or similar. The Witchery in Scotland is supposed to be gorgeous or I have always wanted to go here
eriska hotel

Paris - actually think it is not that great in terms of a capital city - prefer rome or madrid but there is just an air of something (garlic??) that makes it feel special!!

I've never really got the paris thing. Been a couple of times and just think it's overpriced and not that special - prefer barcelona or Prague.

Hmmm, so many ideas. I was thinking of just going away for a long weekend, as I doubt my mum could look after dd for longer than that.
