    Default So if you are heading off for a weekend away (sans Dh and kids) do you....

    - clean the house
    - stock the fridge
    - cook some prepared meals

    Or just leave them all to fend for themselves, knowing that there is a fully stocked supermarket less than 1 km away and knowing that you'll have to clean and tidy the house when you get home anyway.

    Thoughts?

    I've never gone for a weekend, but have gone overnight.

    I always leave out pjs, make food, stock fridge, mostly because I usually take the car which has the restraints, but usually because I can't help it

    I'd just leave it. They will cope without you. If they live on microwave meals or fast food who cares it's not your problem.
    I say crack open a bottle of champers and get excited about your weekend away

    I would probably stock the fridge only because it can be hard to get to the supermarket with a baby, there's already frozen meals in the freezer but DH would most likely make his own meals anyway. I wouldn't do anymore cleaning than I usually did before I scooted out the door without another thought.

    I'd stock the fridge, DH is quite capable of cooking and cleaning but knows how fussy I am with buying certain foods and where i like to buy them from ( not supermarkets) so would be easier if I bought the food!

    I just came back from a weekend away and didn't do any of the things you mentioned. DH is a big boy, he managed okay

    While I know they'll cope id still do all of the things you mentioned just because I can't help myself. And secretly I know my husband likes it...

    DH is better at shopping with 3 kids than I am. And a better cook if he can be bothered. I would leave it. However if he told me he was going to invite his family over or something, I would clean up certain things because I know he wouldn't be bothered.

    Oh consider it cracked

    So I thought I might do a Coles online order to arrive on Friday night with the basics and then DH can fill in the blanks himself if needs be. We have four kids so I don't totally want to leave him with nothing but I don't want to spend my two days off this week preparing everything either!
    Thanks everyone

    I am lucky, I went away for 4 nights a few months ago and I returned home to a spotless house, fridge and cupboards stocked and all washing done... so I would just go.
