Nessie - would definitely love to catch up. How are you placed for Wednesday morning? Lucy's at a gymnastics day so I'd only have Marc and Scarlett. I'll PM you my mobile in case you don't have it anymore.
Re travel - I definitely advocate doing as much travel as you can while you still have 1 kid, particularly if you're going it alone. I had so many opportunities to travel when Lucy was little and I didn't take them as it all seemed too hard. Now we have the 3 it's so much harder. DH and I want to take the kids overseas but I'm seriously reconsidering it until all the kids are much older. JMO.
M4N enjoy the freedom. We're off to the beach tomorrow, weather permitting.
