    With the afternoon/day/week I'm having I'm thinking a trip alone is a must!

    Seems like its its a great way to recharge

    it sounds dumb but I don't want to feel like I need to bow and scrape to my husband with thanks and appreciation if I do go away (and I know that sounds like we have a terrible relationship but we really don't, it's just I feel like I have to over the top appreciate crap like that whereas he doesn't give it a second thought I'll be here and looking after the children except every now and then when he half heartedly 'checks' I'm ok with him going somewhere). I think I just need to bite the bullet and plan something! X

    Nope ! I took myself to NY in 2012 but made sure kids were with their dad for school holidays .. Mind you they were 16 and 14 .. I just don't believe in leaving kids home to go away yourself !

    I just got back from Egypt a few weeks ago. I left kiddo at home and enjoyed my time away. Next alone trip will be in about 2 years time as travelling with kiddo next year.

    Do it! And don't feel guilty or like you need to shower your DH with appreciation. When I first went away I told DH that when I came home I expected the house to be in the same condition he comes home to after time away. I was not going to go away to recharge and come home to a bomb site! It was so great, and DH loved the time with our kids, and the kids had a blast. It took me going away once to realise I had no reason to feel guilty. Do it!!

    DH and I went to Thailand for a week when DS1 was 2.5. We left him with grandparents. It was absolutely fantastic really great for our marriage.

    Do it and don't worry what anyone else thinks. You sound like you need it .

    Recently my DH had a work trip to the City but he was at a conference all day and then a dinner until midnight. I tagged along, spent the day wandering the City by myself, went out to dinner on my own, went back to the hotel and had a nice relaxing bath and then hopped into bed with a book. I was sound asleep when DH got back to the hotel. It was blissful. I loved it and informed DH that I couldnt wait to do it all again, but this time totally on my own.

    We just came back (DH and I) from two and a half weeks in England - first time in 10yrs I've had more than one night away from the kids and I loved every moment of our holiday. The kids had a ball at home with their grandparents and I don't regret it at all.

    I've been away for girls weekends about 5 times in the past 6 years I guess. Another one is booked for later in the year! DH and I had one night away for our anniversary when DS was 18 months old, and we went to Melbourne for a weekend sans kids 2 years ago.

    It's definitely a great way to switch off.

    My folks take my DS away each school holidays for a week while I'm at work. I never ask they always offer. This coming July holidays they are going to Coffs Harbour for 7nights and Sydney for 2 nights. We went to Coffs and Mooloolaba for 2 weeks in March without DS, again they offered. Total shock and extremely thankful. He also stays there every Thursday night and will keep doing that once no 2 comes along in a few weeks time as they don't want him to not have his normal routine.

    Default Has anyone been on 'holiday' alone since having children?

    DF and I went away for a night when DD was about 6 months old. We are currently completely broke so no holidays planned in the immediate future but we are getting married next year and plan to have a child free honeymoon.

    Before having DD we had lots of holidays without DSS1 & 2 (and heaps with them.
